DIY Rosemary Lemon Dishpan Hands Remedy

Are your hands rough, dry, and chapped from washing dishes? Mine are! Is the cold, windy weather making things worse? Absolutely! That's why I mixed up this batch of healing rosemary lemon salt scrub. I use it a few times daily to exfoliate, moisturize, and heal my hands naturally. 

Here's the recipe so you can mix up a batch too. You probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. Keep some near your sink so that you remember to use it.

DIY Rosemary Lemon Dishpan Hands Remedy Recipe

You'll need:

Do this:
  1. Put salt into a medium sized bowl.
  2. Use a zester to remove the zest (yellow parts) from the peel of an entire lemon. (It's easiest if you use a lemon that isn't peeled or cut yet.) Allow zest to fall into the bowl.
  3. Remove leaves from rosemary sprigs. Chop, or tear, the leaves into small pieces. Add to bowl.
  4. Add essential oils to bowl. (If you don't have one or both of these, don't let that stop you from making this recipe! It will still work brilliantly without them.)
  5. Add almond oil and blend ingredients until you reach desired consistency. 
  6. Divide between two small mason jars. Decorate with a cute label, if you wish. (I like to make little collages from recycled catalog pages.) Don't forget to write what it is and the "made on" date.
  7. Keep one jar and gift the other to a friend. :-)

How to use:
  1. Scoop out some scrub and rub into clean hands. Pay extra attention to dry, chapped spots.
  2. Rinse and dry hands.
  3. Appreciate your smooth and well-moisturized hands.
  4. This can also be used as a body polish/ body scrub or bath soak.
