pamper your skin

If any hands deserve pampering and care, there would be those of gardeners. They scoop and putter, weed and feed and by the end of the day their hands get rough and blistered, with dirt under the fingernails and hardened cuticles; it is hard work to bring forth the miracle of harvest.

I wish you many blessings for the effort you put forth and will share this skin pampering recipe for you to enjoy: one quarter cup of vegetable oil, one tablespoon of coconut oil, one tablespoon of beeswax, one tablespoon of vitamin E oil (or one tablespoon of oil and two vitamin E capsules), one teaspoon of lanolin, half a cup of very strong calendula petals tea and your favorite fragrance. Warm up the oils and wax until they are liquid and fully blended, stir in the strained calendula tea and the fragrance and whip in a blender until smooth and creamy. Spoon into a pretty jar and enjoy. Calendula helps heal small cuts and scrapes, the lanolin is wonderfully conditioning and the beeswax will form a protective layer over your skin to keep the moisture in and the irritants out.
