Healing Hand Cream
6 tablespoons white petroleum jelly
1/2 teaspoon paraffin wax
1/4 teaspoon anhydrous lanolin
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

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
