If you plan to garden this season, you will want to whip up a batch of this homemade gardeners hand lotion with essential oils. This is a great way to prevent your hands from drying out and leave them feeling silky smooth. Or if you know a gardener, this would make a great affordable gift option! You use simple ingredients to make a luxurious hand lotion that will soothe dry skin in no time. As a gardener myself, I have tried tons of lotions, creams, and even salves and none seemed to do the trick. So I whipped up my own gardener’s hand lotion, and now I can say, my hands feel better than they ever have!
Gardening requires a lot of work from your hands. From pulling weeds, playing in the dirt, it takes a toll. Especially when it takes a long time to wash away all the dirt from under your nails and hands. It can really dry out your cuticles as well. As the gardening season goes on your skin gets even drier than when it began. But when you use a hand lotion like this homemade one, it helps lock in that moisture, so you don’t lose it from the extra hand washing. Keep your skin feeling moisturized and silky smooth, and not chapped and dried out this gardening season!
Homemade DIY Gardeners Hand Lotion
This gardeners hand lotion can be made in the microwave! Not only does it do wonders for dry skin but it is a breeze to make! I am all about simplicity that generates results, and I find this hand lotion is a winner.
Simply put all the oils and beeswax pellets in the microwave safe bowl, leaving out the essential oils. Turn the microwave on high for just 20-30 seconds and allow it to melt. Once it is fully melted, let it cool for 3 minutes.
Transfer to an airtight container, and it will store for up to six months.
That is truly all it takes to make this amazing gardeners lotion, and I place this by my kitchen sink or even in the bathroom and then just scoop out a little and massage into my hands and arms. Even if you don’t garden, this is a great lotion to make for dry skin. The different oils help create a barrier on your skin that locks that moisture in and gives you that youthful glow.
