LOVE this handmade holiday DIY gift idea: an essential oil infused hand scrub that's perfect for soothing winter skin!

This easy handmade soothing winter hand scrub is like a facial… but for your hands. A handcial? Can we make that a thing? Regardless of what you call it, it’s going to be SO appreciated by those for whom you make it and gift it. It’s infused with luscious lavender essential oil for a blissful mini-spa experience that supports healthy skin. In true Making Lemonade style, it takes under 5 minutes to make and if you probably already have the base ingredients in your home. The ingredients are mixed in a bag so even the kids can do this (hellllo, teacher gifts or kid’s gift making idea for a large group!) Plus, your hands? There’s going to feel like BUTTAH. I used it a few hours ago and my skin is still glowing.

Soothing Winter Hand Scrub

  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/3 cup of grapeseed oil (or olive oil, coconut oil, or Young Living’s V6 oil– all are great choices for skincare)
  • 10 drops Young Living lavender oil (optional: add a few drops of Rose or Frankincense oils, both support healthy skin)
  • Quart sized ziploc bag
  • Mini-Mason Jars

4. You can add on a wooden spoon to use to apply it to hands, but be sure to let people know you can’t eat the scrub. Actually, you CAN eat the scrub because it’s made with pantry items (um, try THAT with Bath & Body Works scrubs… actually don’t, that would be terrible) but I don’t recommend it because it won’t taste super awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But isn’t it great to know the scrub is so safe you could literally eat it?

How to use the scrub:

Rub onto dry hands and massage gently onto skin. Take your time with this and enjoy the few minutes of ‘me’ time. Then rinse off and pat hands dry. Don’t your hands feel AMAZING?! So smooth and refreshed!
