{Thermomix Thursday} Homemade Hand Cream

Forgive me for this non-food post on my food blog.

I was excited to find out you can make your own bath and body products in this wonder machine. So, for Christmas last year, some lucky people got a little pot of hand cream from yours truly. And they will probably get another one this year since I have lots of “ingredients” leftover.

It’s a very simple recipe, I had lots of fun making my own little packaging and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when recieving something I had made … that wasn’t food 😛

You can find this recipe, and others at the back of the Vegetarian Cookbook.

And to source the ingredients, I went to Auroma.

    That is awesome! I love the idea of knowing exactly what’s gone into the hand cream, some of the stuff on the shelves is pretty scary. Plus, it’s such a beautiful personal present.

    I have so many Thermomix cookbooks but not this one. They were out at the cooking class and I never ordered it. I will now!

    Oooh, so pretty! Well done Shellie, the packaging looks gorgeous – but no doubt the cream is even better. I haven’t tried any creams yet.

    As a recipient of one of these lovely hand creams for Christmas last year, I can certainly attest that they are amazing! The lemony smell is heaven.

    Shelly your hand cream looks great, your packaging is so professional. I tried to make this hand cream but I had trouble with it setting, also there were bits of the coconut flesh not blended through. Did you have any problems? Any tips please. Thank you Dianne

    which Vegetarian Cookbook is it? Do you have the ISBN? I have googled, but there is a few and I’m not sure which one it is! I am looking for thermomix recipes for home-made creams etc so any suggested books/websites would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi. I made these for my daughters day care teachers, but it wasn’t til I was cleaning up I realized there was no instruction for adding the vitamin e (and hence I didnt..) Can you tell me when you added it? Thanks!
