Gardener’s Hand Scrub

Hey y’all I am Amy from the blog A Blossoming Life and I’m excited to be here on Kelly’s blog sharing this moisturizing hand scrub.

I love spring, but it is a super busy time for gardeners! Crazy good busy time that is. This year my garden is going to be much smaller (our first baby is due the end of June), but the amount of work is almost the same. With hard work comes rough and dry hands. Not to mention dirty hands. I never understand that part. Seriously… I wear gloves to keep my hands clean and when I take them off and I  have dirt under my fingernails. Oh well, it’s part of the joy of growing your own food.

So back to the dry hands part. Working the ground is hard work and makes your hands oh so dry. So I created this moisturizing and natural hand scrub. After a long day in the garden it feels nice to treat yourself to a little spa treatment like this hand scrub.

Gardener’s Hand Scrub


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tbs vit e oil
  • 1 tsp shea butter
  • 10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice (optional). My favorite is a mix of lavender and peppermint.

Directions: Place ingredients in a blender and blend until combined. Place in a sealable jar.

To use: Dampen hands. Place a quarter size of the scrub in hands and rub together for a minute or so. Then rinse hands with water.

Super simple and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry. Your hands will thank you I promise!
