DIY Moisturizing Hand Salve Recipe
This moisturizing hand salve recipe is perfect for dry skin and cuticles. Just melt and pour the ingredients, and you're done!
How To Make Hand Salve
Gently heat the beeswax in a double boiler. (If you don’t have a double boiler you can use a stainless steel bowl set inside a pot of boiling water.)
When the beeswax is melted, add in the shea butter (if using) and allow it to fully melt.
When the shea butter is melted, add in the oil and let it warm up for 1-2 minutes. Stir everything until it is well combined and then remove the mixture from heat.
If you're adding essential oils, allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes before stirring them in. You want it to be warm and pourable but not hot.
Pour the salve into your container (or containers) and allow to cool fully before using. I used three of these 2 ounce tins.
