      Healing Hand Cream

      6 tablespoons white petroleum jelly
      1/2 teaspoon paraffin wax
      1/4 teaspoon anhydrous lanolin
      double boiler
      spoon
      10 drops essential oil (lemon, tea tree, or lavender)
      china or dark glass container

      Perfect for using on little cuts and scratches, this is also a real barrier cream against moisture. Place the petroleum jelly, paraffin wax and lanolin in a double boiler and melt slowly over a gentle heat, stirring constantly. When melted, remove from the heat and continue stirring as the mixture cools and thickens.

      Stir in the essential oil and store in a china or dark
      glass container

      Thanks, but what is anhydrous lanolin?

      Where would you find the lanoline at the store? I have a son who has eczema (extremly dry cracky skin) I would love to try this with him. Thanks
