Hey Clarks Condensed Fans! It’s Kristina from Mother’s Niche and I happen to be Katie’s biggest fan! Isn’t she amazing?
The winter can be rough on skin, especially in dryer climates. I hate how dry my hands get every winter! If I don’t make sure I’m moisturizing them, they get scaly and gross.
If you’re looking for the perfect holiday gift this year, treat your friends and neighbors to some homemade hand scrub. Not only is is super easy to make, but it’s also super quick to make, and you can customize it with all kinds of scents!
Here’s a basic How TO:
I always use coconut oil because it’s awesome for your skin (read more about that here: benefits of Coconut Oil). I then use sugar for the exfoliant part. Here’s the thing though, there aren’t going to be EXACT measurements for the coconut oil because it changes consistency depending on the temperature of your home. My ratio is always different depending on Summer/winter, but I also start with one part oil, to one part sugar, and then I add more sugar until it becomes the consistency of a scrub (or wet sand).
You can then leave it how it is or add a scent to it. For the holidays, I love to use peppermint or Holiday Joy oils, but if all you have is vanilla, that works great. Another one of my favorites is Citrus Bliss.
