Homemade Hand Scrub
Gardening time in one of my favorite times of year but it always leave my hands looking rather rough, brown, or even sometimes stained with green (that just means I'm doing it right, right?). After putting up with it for a few years I decided that a good homemade hand scrub to use when I came inside from gardening was a must.
This recipe is incredibly simple and takes only a few minutes to put together, you will wonder why you haven't made it already!
Homemade Hand Scrub for Gardeners
What You Need:
- 1 cup sugar (white or brown will work)
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- ½ cup coconut oil (Where to Buy)
- 5 drops tea tree essential oil (Where to Buy)
What To Do:
Making this scrub is very simple for something that is so effective! Simply use a small bowl and melt your coconut oil to a liquid. Add in the sugar, salt, and essential oil if desired.
Stir all of the ingredients together until the mixture is fully combined. Place the scrub into a jar or another air tight container and store in a cool place until ready to use.
To use the scrub, simply scoop out a small amount into your hands and scrub over dirty garden hands. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel. If your hands feel greasy after use you can rinse them again with regular hand soap.
