      I just wanted to mention a few benefits of parafin. *From a parafin bath.

      I have seen the results of using parafin on hands and it is remarkable to say the least. Those with EXTREME weathered hands can find relief for up to a week. I know you know those types of hands. Those are the hands of men who work outside either in the cold, or are carpenters. As well as  many other types of hardworking hands. These types of hands can actually bleed from cracks if not taken care of properly.
      And there are those people who develop cracks at the top of their fingers, and it doesn’t seem to matter the climate or how often they use their lotion. Parafin is a great aid in eliminating those as well. * Using a good cuticle oil will also help. * For cracks such as these you can use “superglue” to close these slight cracks,as was recommended by my Dad’s doctor for his. It does help in
      speeding up the healing time.

      I have also used my parafin on a face of a friend who has
      extreme eczema (spelling?). Water is her enemy since it causes her body and face to dry even more. The parafin has left her face in a calming state for 4 or more days. She has
      thanked me for the times I have put it on for her to see if the benefits are always the same. And they are!

      Also, using the parafin bath is soothing for those with arthritis, and benefits have been seen.

      If anyone is interested in a Parafin Bath for your home, they are not expensive and the benefits far outweigh the cost.

      I hope I have helped introduce you to the Parafin Bath... since it usually sits in most Manicurist areas, and you may have wondered it’s benefits.

      Who knows... you might find other benefits with your Parafin Bath.
