Tina's Lanolin Butter

Utah has a very dry and arid climate, and during the winter months, it can be hard to keep the skin hydrated, soft and supple. Body lotions are a must this time of year. However, I find everyone needs to give their skin a little extra TLC at some point or another. Whether it is dry heels, cracking cuticles, or rough knuckles, Tina’s Lanolin Butter can handle it all. This recipe is actually a favorite here at TheSage. I get requests for 2 oz jars every year. These make great stocking stuffers!

I love this recipe because it works well in jars, tubs, tins, and even the doe foot pens. (I love it in the doe foot pens because it is ready to apply to cuticles and knuckles AND it travels in my purse perfectly.) If you are in an area where it gets cold, I don’t recommend putting it into a bottle. When it is cold, it is just too thick to dispense well. It is best to be safe rather than sorry and put this product into a wide mouth container.

INSTRUCTIONS

Weigh all ingredients except the essential oils, Vitamin E Acetate and the Liquid Germall Plus into the microwave safe container. Microwave using short bursts of time. Stir after each burst to help melt the Lanolin without making the temperatures too hot.

Adding High Melt Point Shea Butter

Adding High Melt Point Shea Butter

It took my batch about 3 minutes in the microwave with stirring every 45 seconds or so. The glycerin will become hot quickly, and since it settles to the bottom of your container, the bottom will not be a place to grab the container until all ingredients have been mixed together thoroughly.

Allow the mixture to cool below 120°F. Add the essential oils , Vitamin E Acetate and Liquid Germall Plus and stir until the mixture has cooled sufficiently to pour into your desired containers. Pour into the containers. Cap, label and enjoy!

NOTES

If your Lanolin is very stiff and hard to get out of the container, feel free to microwave it for about 30 to 45 seconds to warm the Lanolin enough to scoop it or pour it easily.
