I made this cream the other day. I used a mixture of several essential oils including peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender and tea tree. Love it! I have tried every hand cream on the market, and this is hands down the best ever! I have since made several jars for friends. -http://buysoundcloudnow.com/plays/ http://buysoundcloudnow.com/
