Paraffin Wax Treatment For Hands -

You will need:
1 block paraffin wax (about 4 oz)
an ounce of oil
20 drops of essential oil... lavender is rather nice

a few drops of olive oil ( you will use this to coat your hands) a casserole dish that you have greased with oil before hand plastic sandwich bags
Melt the paraffin, the ounce of oil, the scented oil in a double boiler. Be sure to use a double boiler for safety purposes. Very carefully pour the wax into the dish and wait until a skin has formed on the top of the wax. When this happens, the temperature should be about right for submerging your hands.**But before you do, be sure to test the wax for comfort in case the wax is still a little too warm for your liking. Testing a little on your wrist usually works. Get your hands ready by washing them and then pat them dry with paper towel. Smooth on the olive oil and be sure to cover every inch of your hands and fingers. Dip each hand into the wax repeatedly until you have several layers of wax built up on your hands. Have someone help you put on the sandwich bags onto each hand and then relax for about 30 minutes. For added benefit, place a bath towel over your hands as you wait. This is a perfect time to watch a half hour of tv. Now comes the time to remove the wax... simply peel it away. Start at the wrist area and pull it down. It should come off in large sections. Give yourself a little hand massage and you are done.
