You will need

  • 2 tablespoonfuls of hazelnuts or almonds
  • 1 tablespoonful of clear honey
  • 1 whipped yolk


In order to soften your hands you can use healing gloves soaked in oatmeal, crushed nuts and herbs. Such hand treatment will soften and condition skin. Yet this procedure is not suitable for those, suffering from arthritis or rheumatoid hands.

To begin with, buy a pair of cheap cotton gloves 2 sizes bigger than you normally wear and a pair of disposable plastic gloves one size bigger than the cotton ones. The latter should be put on the cotton gloves not to stain bedclothes.

Slightly fry hazelnuts and grind them after removing shells. If you use almonds, place them in hot water, peel the skins and grind. Mix with honey and yolk until smooth. Apply the mass in a thick layer all over your hands and ask someone to help you put the second pair of gloves on.
