Lavendarfieldointment

This is also great on your cuticles, rough feet. (rub feet down with ointment and put some socks on before bed.also helps athletes feet and foot fungus’s etc )

-1 1/2 Shea, hemp or other semi hard butter(can mix more then 1, just make sure total equals 1 1/2 cups)
-1 cup olive oil
-1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil
-1/2 teaspoon tea tree oil
-20 drops lavender essential oil
-10 drops lemon essential oil

In a double boiler, slowly melt your semi hard butters. Add in your olive oil. Mix thoroughly. Remove from heat. Add your vit E and essential oils. Mix thoroughly. Pour into desired containers. Preferably non metal (yes, I know, the pic above is metal 🙂

**Tip:The best way to test it before pouring into containers. Keep a piece of wax paper near you. After adding all ingredients, place a dime sized dot on the paper and allow to cool. Once hardened, pick it up and rub on the back of your hand.  If it is too hard for your preference, add some more oils. too soft for your preference, add some more butters.**(always test small area for allergic reaction before using)

+++You can purchase many of the ingredients from Mountain rose herbs. This is one of my personal faves. They carry only the highest quality ingredients, organic and fair trade only. Follow this link- http://mountainroseherbs.com/index2.html
