Between Colorado’s cold Winter and my constant hand washing because of the baby, my hands are dry and rough. I decided regular over-the-counter lotions just weren’t cutting it. I perused through my pantry and threw together a few ingredients and viola, I have a hand scrub. After just one use, I am hooked (and so is my husband but shhhh don’t tell anyone ;). Here is the super easy hand scrub recipe from common pantry ingredients.
-2/3 Cups Sea Salt- I only had larger granule sea salt so I used my coffee grinder to make a little finer
-6 tablespoons coconut oil melted
-6 tablespoons olive oil
-6-10 drops of lemongrass essential oil (or any essential oil you might have on hand)
Place salt in bowl first, then pour melted coconut oil, olive oil and essential oil over salt and mix together.
Scoop a small amount on your hands (or body) and rub together. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Please note- Once coconut oil has been melted, it can return back to it’s solid form. To prevent your scrub from becoming too solidified, keep away from cooler temps. You may also use fractionated coconut oil which remains in a liquid form naturally.
I chose lemongrass for it’s antiseptic properties but I’m sure this scrub could work with a citrus scent or any other essential oil you might have on hand.
