Honey-Do Super Hand Cream

A little while ago I had someone ask for some help formulating a stiff but non-greasy hand cream for her husband. He had been using a “No Crack” Super Hand Cream that he loved, but he had just ran out. He begged her to see if she could make something for him.

I helped her formulate this recipe. She wrote back to say that both she and her husband use, and love, it! Try this hand cream out on your significant other and see if that honey-do list doesn’t become a little shorter. Come join me in the kitchen to whip up this Honey-Do Super Hand Cream.

NOTES

The first time I made this hand cream, I put it in a bottle. Whoops. It wasn’t exactly my most brilliant idea of the day. This hand cream is SUPER thick. You can hold the bottle upside down as long as you would like, and it will not move. Thank goodness the bottle is flexible, because you have to squeeze the bottle to get it out. I highly recommend that you put this cream in a jar. You will save yourself a heartache and a headache.
