Hand Cream

1 pound Velvachol (can be purchased at drug store)
1 pint Glycerin (can be purchased at drug store)
5 cups warm distilled water
Few drops food coloring
Few drops perfume

Mix all together in a large mixer bowl for 5 minutes.

Makes about 4 quarts.

(This is what the pharmacist wrote down for me.)

14 divided by 16 = .875 (14 oz.)
1 pint = 480 X .875 = 420 ml
420 divided by 30 = 14 oz
= 28 tablespoons


Christmas Scent

3 to 4" sticks cinnamon
3 bay leaves
1/2 c whole cloves
1/2 lemon, halved
1/2 orange, halved

Combine all ingredients in sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer as long as needed, adding water to keep mixture from drying up. Can store in refrigerator in tightly covered container for several days if desired.
