I attended a breakfast meeting a few weeks ago for networking. Seated at the table was a lady who has suffered for years with dry, cracked skin on her hands. I had a couple of ideas, but told her I would email her some suggestions. I came home, did a little research, and found a wonderful website called www.crunchybetty.com. Clever name, cute pin-up girl in the logo, natural, practical stuff on the website, and this amazing recipe. So I’m sharing it with full disclosure and encouragement to check out Crunchy Betty’s website.
Before I do, the thing that prompted me to post this recipe, is that not only has this recipe become a solution for one lady’s hands, she’s now sharing it with other people, even invited a whole group of ladies to come over and try it, and they are using it on feet and other body areas–I’m not asking where, and it seems to be producing incredible results.
The Lean, Green Hand Moisturizing Machine Recipe
1/2 of an over-ripe avocado
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/8 c. sugar
4-5 drops patchouli essential oil
Mash the avocado well, until you have a thick paste. Blend the olive oil in completely, and continue stirring as you add the patchouli essential oil. Quickly stir in the sugar.
To use: Over the sink, place a healthy-sized glob of avocado hand treatment in your hands. Rub your hands together, scrubbing every inch, but concentrating on super dry areas. Leave this on for 30 seconds to a minute, and then scrub your hands together while rinsing off under lukewarm water. Finish with shea butter or a moisturizer of your choice. Repeat this treatment once or twice a day for three days.
Put the remainder of your avocado hand treatment in a glass container with a lid, and store in your fridge for up to three days. If the sugar in your avocado hand treatment dissolves too much, just add a bit more sugar before using.
That’s it. You’re done.
