Want Soft Hands Try this Homemade Hand Scrub Recipe

Want to get soft hands? Yeah, me too. I’ve often heard that nothing gives away your age more than your hands. But expensive hand creams aren’t the answer. They can be loaded with chemical fillers and they always ignore a vital step in getting soft hands: exfoliation. Instead, fight dry, cracked winter hands with a food-based homemade scrub formulated especially for your hands!

How to Make Homemade Hand Scrub

Ingredients:

Instructions:

1. Stir together the honey and coconut oil in a medium bowl.
2. In another small bowl, blend the salt, sugar and lemon juice until it becomes crumbly.
3. Pour the salt mixture over the honey mixture and stir until smooth.
4. Store in a small glass storage container.


Directions for Use:

1. Gently massage a marble-sized amount of homemade hand scrub into your hands for 30-60 seconds. (Don’t forget to exfoliate between your fingers!)
2. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. The coconut oil provides enough moisture so you probably won’t need to follow up with anything else. If your hands are extra dry, you might want to apply some homemade whipped coconut oil.
3. Repeat 1-2 times per week.


Why These Ingredients?

  • Coconut oil: provides quality moisture and antibacterial/antiviral/antifungal properties. Helps soften skin so it’s ready for exfoliation. (Get high quality coconut oil online here.)
  • Honey: heals and softens the skin. It’s mother nature’s best kept beauty secret!
  • Salt and sugar: both are excellent for exfoliating and can also be healing for the skin.
  • Lemon juice: brightens, softens, and helps remove odors from your hands (like onion!).

Good-Bye Dry, Cracked Winter Hands!

I always wondered how to get soft hands (especially in the dry winter months), and it turns out I was missing the important step of exfoliation. Since I started using this scrub, my hands look and feel fantastic! They also absorb moisturizer so much better now, I hardly need to use any at all.

    • I’m not totally sure, but my gut says probably not. All the ingredients are pretty shelf stable. I’d also guess it might become pretty hard if you refrigerate it.

      If you want to be on the super safe side, you might not want to make more than you’d use in a 3-month period.

      • OMG! I am 12 and I love making things like ths! I went in the kitchen right away and made a mess until I had it. We used organic coconut sugar instead off regular, and it smells and feels amazing! Thank you! My mom and I just did it and are making some for our family for Christmas! I am obsessing over my soft hands! Thanks!

  1. Just made up several batches of this to give my kids’ teachers as end-of-the-year gifts! I put some in small glass jars with a swatch of cute fabric on the tops. Perfect!

  2. My hands feel so soft after using this scrub! And they smell wonderful too. Thanks for sharing this great recipe and for promoting natural homemade cosmetics. I am going to share this with as many people as I can.

    • I’m not sure–I always use it up long before it would be in danger of expiring. A good rule of thumb would be to refrigerate it if you want to keep it for more than a couple of weeks.

  3. I LOVE this!! :) I’m going to use essential oils instead of the fresh lemon juice, just because I’ve got a large stash of oils and no fresh lemons. But I do have everything else. I’m adding this recipe to my “Homemade Spa” Christmas collection that co-workers are getting this year!

  4. I was reading a site on how to make soap with coconut oil, and it said that coconut oil is only to be used up to 1/3 of the amount b/c it will DRY your skin!?? How can that be, if we are all using it to soften our skin?
    Also, I whipped this up with my mixer, but melted cocoa butter and mixed with coconut oil. Had to refrigerate for ten minutes to start cooling; mixed again then cooled; It finally whipped up great once it started cooling. Only problem is, it’s hardened in the jar. Doesn’t stay soft. I still love it, though!

  5. I have been trying this for a week now and it has become my new favorite hand scrub! My hands have never felt this soft before. This has been a great find :)

  6. How much does this hand scrub make? 2 oz? 4 oz? 8 oz? Because I plan to make 8oz jars for my cousin’s birthday tomorrow afternoon and it would be appreciated for a speedy response.Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!

  7. I just made a similar recipe off another blog to test as a Christmas gift, but all of the ingredients separated in the jar after only a couple of hours. Does your recipe separate also?
