Nothing beats the simple delight of a good paraffin hand wax. Here’s an easy way to pamper your hands without ever leaving the comfort of your house!
- 1 block of paraffin wax
- a double boiler
- an ounce of oil
- 20 drops of essential oil
- a casserole dish greased with oil
- some plastic sandwich bags
Melt the wax, the oil, and the essential oil in your double boiler. Once it’s melted, pour the mixture into the casserole dish and wait for a skin to develop over the top. Test the temperature to make sure it’s not too hot, then wash and dry your hands completely.
Next, cover your hands completely in olive oil and dip each of them repeatedly into the wax. Dipping several times creates multiple layers and achieves the best effect.
Finally, have a friend help you put each hand into a plastic bag. Relax for about thirty minutes, then peel away the hardened wax. Enjoy the new smooth delight of your hands and do post your comments about it!
