Olive oil and honey hand cream is a simple, easy to make hand cream that is great for nourishing and moisturising the skin after a long day of gardening or working with the hands. Olive oil and honey hand cream is also good for moisturising hands after washing the dishes, an everyday activity that saps essential moisture from the hands, often leaving them dry and rough. Olive oil and honey hand cream will keep for about four months from the day it is made if stored in a cool, dark place between uses.
