      Healing Hand Cream

      6 tablespoons white petroleum jelly
      1/2 teaspoon paraffin wax
      1/4 teaspoon anhydrous lanolin
      double boiler
      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
