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!

Lemon Mint Sugar Hand Scrub Recipe Directions:
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?
This DIY project takes only about 5 minutes to make. I keep my jar beside my sink and just scoop out a little and rub my hands gently together for about 10 seconds or so. Wash of with warm water and pat dry. You can use this in the morning or evening. **this can also be used as a body scrub!
