ALLUMI SOFTENING HAND SALVE RECIPE
To keep safe during this period , we need to wash our hands and use hand sanitiser regularly – This is crucial during these troubling times. The downside is that our poor hands are becoming red, sore and cracked! .
In the Allumi kitchen I have put together a very basic hand salve using some basic kitchen cupboard ingredients I am sure you will already have, these being Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Honey.
Firstly Coconut butter – this is the solid form of coconut oil that many of us cook with or use in smoothies.
Coconut oil is used in many natural skin products : it’s naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and moisturising. Coconut oil is composed primarily of nourishing fatty acids and is especially high in Lauric acid. It also contains vitamin E and healthy fats, which help the skin by replacing lost moisture. our skin dried out due to the use of alcohol based cleansing products.
Olive oil is a staple kitchen ingredient rich in vitamins to support skin health. Olive oil acts as an antioxidant, which is a substance that prevents oxidation. … When applied to the skin, antioxidants may prevent premature ageing, and therefore keeps our hands looking youthful.
Finally Honey – A great antiseptic and healing ingredient. It is naturally anti-bactericidal, it’s extremely moisturising and soothing, so it really helps to repair dry and damaged skin.
