Paraffin Wax Treatment

As you all know by now, I have a problem with dry hands. I found this great recipe for a paraffin wax treatment that is sure to assist  with both dry hands and feet in these cold winter months. Its easy and inexpensive to make. Get some friends together and have a paraffin wax party!

Materials

  • 3 blocks of paraffin wax
  • 3 table spoons vegetable oil
  • 10 drops lavender oil
  • a few drops almond oil
  • plastic bags

Method

  • Melt the paraffin wax and vegetable oil in a double boiler
  • add the lavender oil
  • Carefully pour into a grease proof tub
  • a skin will form over the top of the wax
  • this shows that the temperature is right for submerging your limbs
  • however test wax on your wrist to check it wont burn
  • wash hands an feet thoroughly
  • dry well with a towel
  • smooth on the almond oil
  • dip into the wax repeatedly until a few layers have built up
  • you may require help putting your hands and feet in the plastic bags
  • then you can relax for 30mins
  • to remove the wax- simply peel it off
  • discard used wax

Try this and let me know if your hands and feet feel moisturised and baby soft.
