note: test it first before using
1. Warm up your oil till it is clear.
2. Then unplug it and wait for it to get cool enough I like to wait until I see it getting a little white again.
3. Wash your hands and dry them. If you have open sores either cover them with a tight bandage or wait until that is healed before dipping.
4. Then dip the hands in wait until they stop dripping and then dip again and one more time. (It always reminds me of those wax statues.)
5. Allow the wax to remain on the skin for 15 minutes up to about 45 minutes.
6. When you are finished with the wax treatment then just start from the wrist and pull it down into your warmer for use another time. You can use it more times until you feel like there isn't enough for a proper treatment or that there are too many impurities in the wax.
There are proper warmers out there for doing this and some salons or health shops offer this service if you are too nervous about doing this.
Below are some links to where you can find some wax warmers and large quantities of wax made just for this purpose, online. (these are affiliate links)
What happens: The Paraffin soaks into the skin and provides moisture and healing and also a barrier for the skin for up to 2 weeks after the treatment. Sometimes this is enough to get on top of the treatment plan again with other easier methods and internal methods.
