This is a lotion for children/adults with eczema or really dry skin. You can use it on your hands or for your body. The key is to hold it in your hands a bit and then rub. The lotion coats your hands and doesn't make it feel greasy. Your hands do feel "coated," but in a good way. I found that it moisturized my dry hands and helped to keep the moisture in. I gave some to two different "dry hand" friends. One of them got back to me and told me that her husband loves it. She wants the recipe.
You can also use it on your lips. I did. I actually put it on my lips and the surrounding area of my mouth before going to sleep. I need to make some more because my daughter's eczema is acting up. She can carry this around in her little bag and use it whenever she needs itch control.
Lotion That Looks Like Soap
adapted from hardlotion.com
1 oz. shea butter
1 oz. coconut oil
1 oz. beeswax pastilles
Melt all three ingredients in a double boiler. It will take a while longer for the beeswax to melt. Be patient. Use a wooden skewer to stir the contents. Once completely melted, pour into molds (quickly). Let cool.
I don't know what happened to the picture of the lotion in the molds. Sorry. Just a picture of the melting shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax.
