I made some
Non-Petroleum Jelly4 tablespoons of Almond oil
2 tablespoons of Vitamin E Oil
2 teaspoons of bees wax
2 teaspoons of Shea butter
Warm up the oils in a glass container (I used a baby food jar) in the microwave for about a minute.
Add the bees wax and shea butter. Stir until melted. Some recipes will tell you to mix with hand mixer' this will make it creamer. But I just stir with a wooden Popsicle stick till melted. It will harden when cooling, I also stir more then. If it is too hard you can ad more warmed oil.
Some hand creams - most hand creams - have fragrance and really hurt them more. I won't use petroleum products.so petroleum jelly is out. It really is made from petroleum by-products.
But I have had this fun when I was little, my knuckles would bleed from the cold. My grandmother would put straight vitamin E oil on my hands. yea she would take a pin and poke a hole in the vitamin and squeeze it on to my hands. It smelled horrible..... So now I get it once in a while.
So when looking for a picture of a red hand I find a health site and it had a picture that could be a picture of my hands. The second picture. They are talking about Raynaud's disease. That my hands blood vessels are more sensitive to the cold and my hands don't have to get cold to turn red. Just a change in temperature.
Great one more sensitivity to ad to my list..........
So I am rubbing the Non-Petroleum Jelly on my hands whenever I can. I will sleep with cotton gloves (the type you wear in the Spring) with a thick coating on my hands. Truth is I am typing right now with gloves on!!! My hands really hurt..........
