Spa pampering of hands, elbows, and feet comes right into the home with this paraffin bath. Paraffin-wax treatments soften and smooth the skin of hands, elbows, and feet, and the heat can soothe sore muscles and aching joints. Using the bath is no more complicated than melting 4 to 6 pounds of paraffin in the cool-touch tub. (Six pounds of pure, hypoallergenic paraffin accompany the bath.) The temperature control is then turned to "keep warm" and the wax allowed to cool before hands, elbows, and feet are dipped into the melted paraffin 6 to 10 times. For longer treatments, a plastic liner (60 are included) can be placed over the wax layers to retain heat. (For even longer heat treatments, HoMedics sells mitts and boots.) If others use the bath, used wax might be discarded. Otherwise, it can be returned to the tub.
