My hands are always so dry and rough in the winter! I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this happening. I feel like I go through a bottle of lotion a week! I have started using a great homemade hand scrub that works so well to slough off dry dead skin from my hands and leaves them super moisturized and soft after rinsing off. So soft that I don’t use lotion immediately after like I usually would. I use this sugar hand scrub recipe once a day and it smells wonderful!

How To Make Lemon Mint Sugar Hand Scrub:
First, grab your bowl and your sugar. Measure out 1 cup of sugar and place in your bowl. Take your measuring spoon and add 1.5 heaping TBSP of coconut oil and 1/2 TBSP of shea butter. Mix ingredients together. Once everything is mixed together, add your essential oils. 4 drops of Lemon and 4 drops of Peppermint. You can add more if you would like it to be a little stronger or less to have a faint scent in your scrub. The 8 drops give it a nice scent that isn’t overpowering!
Once you have added your essential oils, mix everything together and then add to your jar! Easy, isn’t it?
How To Store Sugar Scrub
Once you transfer the coconut lemon sugar scrub into mason jars, tightly secure the lids. Tie a bow around
the jar for presentation and attach a label. You can print your labels on the computer or hand write
them, as desired. Stick the label onto the lid or hole-punch the label and attach it from the ribbon. Be
sure to include directions for use on the label or in the card with your gift. Directions for sugar scrub
use are as simple as, “Rub sugar scrub on to skin and rinse off for smoother, moisturized skin.”
This DIY project takes only about 5 minutes to make!
How To Use Sugar Scrub
I keep my jar beside my sink and just scoop out a little (about a teaspoon) and rub my hands gently together for about 10 seconds or so. Wash with warm water and pat dry. You can use this daily in the morning or evening. This can also be used as a body scrub before you jump in the shower.
