While winter can be a beautiful and enjoyable season it can also bring with it the wind and cold temperatures. These two things play havoc on your skin and can dry your skin mercilessly unless you fight back. Hands especially bear the brunt of winter weather. While I love the indulgence of thick and heavily scented creams and lotions from the department store, sometimes I prefer lotions, salves and creams that I make myself. Knowing what you put in your homemade beauty products means that you can have confidence in their quality, fragrance and gentleness.

Homemade beauty and body products are very easy to make at home with just a few natural ingredients and no special tools. While this peppermint hand cream boasts a refreshing holiday/winter aroma, you can use any essential oil that you wish to achieve practically any scent in your hand cream.

  1. Ann, my hand cream is SUPER greasy and sticky and I made this recipe 7x because I’m making Christmas gifts. It’s didn’t go as far as I thought it would. Is there anything I can add for volume? And is there anything I can add to make it less greasy? It’s incredibly thick…please help!!!!

    • Shelby, it was greasy!? Ummm boy you’ve got me stumped. The only thing that could possibly feel slide-y would be the coconut oil. I am afraid to suggest scaling that back to 1/8 of a cup as the cream might be too thick (it is supposed to be thick as a cream, usable thick, not a balm).

    Hi Ann…made this before Christmas for ‘presents’ but it turned into a solid bar….not scoopable….what did I do wrong?

    thanks!!

  3. Pam did you whip it with your beater? It is pretty solid until whipped.

  4. Pam from Issaquah, wa says:

    nope! duh! can I re-heat and then whip with the beater? plus, how do you get all the ‘cream’ off the beaters? I have a hard enough time getting it off the stir stick…

    thanks!

    Pam

  5. Pam, I am not sure why you’d have to reheat it. You should just beat it now.

    As far as getting stuff off beaters… some people use their fingers (Hubby freaks when I try that 😛 ), a butter knife, or a spatula or scraper.
