I looked at my hands the other day and saw they were in desperate need of soothing oils and exfoliation. Because I'm crafting all day and making DIY tutorials and videos, my hands get washed constantly and dry out fast. So I thought today would be a perfect day to share my simple honey lemon salt scrub recipe that you can keep right beside your sink. When your hands need an extra bit of TLC and love, it will be right there for you. This scrub is really easy to make and you only need a few things you probably already have on hand. You can whip up a quick batch for yourself or give away as a gift to your crafting bestie.
This is my favorite recipe that for me has a perfect balance of oils to salt ratio but feel free to adjust it to your preferences.
1.5 cups of fine sea salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp melted honey
Zest from one lemon for extra exfoliation (optional)
5 or 6 drops of lemon essential oil
Now just gather up a glass bowl and spatula and pour in the sea salt and lemon zest. Next add in all of the oils, honey, and lemon essential oil and stir really well until mixed. Scoop into locking containers to keep it fresh. Use within about two weeks.
To use, take a bit of the scrub and gently rub it all over your hands for at least 20 seconds or so. Wash off with warm water.
I use scrubs about every second day or so to keep my hands looking and feeling refreshed and moisturized. Till next time, take care.
