I used to make lanolin cream only twice a year for a friend to sell at fiber festivals, but it quickly became my favorite winter lotion. The almond oil is rich and moisturizing, and the lanolin is a fantastic moisturizer for skin by preventing water loss and acting as a lubricant, making skin soft and smooth. Beeswax also has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. It is scented with Lemongrass Essential oil, which has anti-fungal, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. All this makes for a wonderful winter moisturizer.
