Dandelion-Infused Hand Lotion
  1. Place a small saucepan on your scale and hit the tare button so it's at zero grams. Add the beeswax until your scale shows 8 grams, then hit tare again before adding the sweet almond oil. Measuring this way is easy and doesn't dirty a bunch of dishes!
  2. Melt over the lowest heat possible, stirring constantly until melted. Using a clear bowl for the beeswax and almond oil and placing it on top of a saucepan as a double-boiler is preferred,
  3. Turn off the heat and add the vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, glycerin and essential oils if using.
  4. Pour the liquid into your blender and allow it to cool in the fridge until its white and semi-solid. You don't want it hard, but more like the consistency of shea butter.
  5. Turn your blender on medium high and sloooowly drizzle in your rose water, hydrosol, or distilled water. You can use a stick blender, though it's trickier to pour while you're mixing. I've also had success with a stand mixer, but the lotion was more prone to separation after a few weeks.
  6. Store your lotion in a sterilized glass jar and make sure your fingers are clean before dipping some out. Enjoy the soothing feel on your hands!
