Homemade Cuticle Cream

IHello everyone it’s Emma from Crafting{E} again! This summer I went up to Oregon… by myself. It was my first time flying alone and I had a ton of fun! While I was there, me and my Aunt made homemade cuticle cream! I have been using and loving it so much. I just knew I needed to share it!


This cuticle cream is super simple! No need for expensive ingredients, just some simple beeswax will do! You also don’t even need to add a scent to this cuticle cream! It is already naturally scented by the honey. In a couple of mine I did add a little essential oil, but I love both of them!


This stuff seriously works wonders, since I’ve began to use it daily, my cuticles have been so much less dry and I had a lot fewer hangnails! You simply rub some of the cream onto your cuticles, it has a Chapstick consistency.


Isn’t it so cute?!? I love how it looks in the little containers. And yes, these are the same containers I used to make my super popular Brown Sugar Lip Scrub. I bought them a while back at the dollar store… 8 for $1 (at least I think so, it was seriously so long ago).


Any little container will work though. I put the cuticle cream from my aunt’s house in a little Altoids containers.


This stuff is amazing guys! And it is SOOO easy to make!

    are the ingredients heated up in the pan? Or do you just mix them in the pan and allow to them to melt?
