Preparation method:
In a heat-resistant glass add the vanilla oil and the ceramide, place in a water bath and heat to 80-85°C, while stirring. 
Remove the beaker from the water bath, add the emulsifying wax and mix until melted. If it does not melt in a short time, it means that the composition is too cold, and it is placed on the water bath for a short time, until the wax will melt completely.
Add the lanolin and mix until it melts.
Add the marigold extract and mix well.
Finally add the safflower oil and mix.
Pour the balm into the dedicated container, and after cooling, put the lid on the container.

A balm rich in nourishing, protective, regenerating and repairing ingredients, ideal for dry and very dry, cracked hands with damaged skin. It is very useful for those whose hands are affected by detergents or for people who work manually, in the garden for example.
It is not a very greasy balm although it is prepared without water.
Apply a moderate amount on freshly washed hands, still slightly damp. It is absorbed quite quickly and does not leave unpleasant or sticky greasy sensation on the skin. It can be used 2-3 times a day or as needed. After a few days of regular application, your hands will feel the difference.

Options and explanations:

  • vanilla oil is included in this formula because it is a dry emollient that ensures a less greasy texture
  • instead of safflower oil, aloe vera oil or another oil with skin regenerating properties can be used; the chosen oil influences the texture of the balm
  • the balm can be perfumed according to your preferences, with natural fragrances or with an essential oil, 10-30 drops added at the end


  • Difficulty: beginner/advanced/experienced
  • Utensils: precision scale, a heat-resistant glass, thermometer, teaspoon/spatula
  • Recommended container: Ele Blue glass jar with lid, 50 ml
