Pottery problems: dry hands

as almost everyone will know, at the end of a pottery session, all tided up and done, hands washed, you’ll end up with dry hands, sometimes severely so. here’s a simple recipe for a good all-purpose anti dry hands creme. it’s cheap, easy to make and you have all control over the ingredients.

disclaimer: i’m no doctor so don’t sue me, this is just for dry hands and – don’t google your rash – but instead if you feel something weird is going on and your skin is looking odd and see your doctor.

recipe:
the ingredients for this creme are fairly simple, you need sheabutter and almond oil. the proportion is approx 60% sheabutter and 40% almond oil. this can be changed depending on preference. you can also use any other oil. what you do is the following: you put the sheabutter in a jar and the jar with the butter into a hotwaterbath to melt the butter. once the butter is molten (it’ll look like on the image), you add the almond oil and stirr it all a bit. it’ll look like this. it looks no different in colour bc the almond oil is the same colour as molten sheabutter:

then leave it alone, it needs about an afternoon to get solid again and it’ll look like this:

finished.
costs: less than a fiver. the jar is 3,5 inch in diameter. the creme reaches 2 inch in height from the bottom of the jar, i used a bit more than 100g of sheabutter and the proportional amount of almond oil. 1kg of organic sheabutter is about a tenner, costs of almond oil can vary.
