Possibly the simplest thing you can do is to make an aromatherapy
hand lotion. Buy a bottle of natural, unscented lotion and add essential
oils that you like or that have an effect you desire. Add 20 to 28
drops of essential oil to each 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of lotion.
For example, to stimulate mental performance, add 12 drops ginger and 8 drops basil. To improve memory, add 12 drops lemon and 8 drops clove. Another great choice is lavender, which is a good skin conditioner and also good for stress relief.
3 ounces turbinado and white sugar (use a blend of sugars based on your skin type: turbinado has larger grains than white sugar, while the texture of white sugar is lighter and better suited to sensitive skin)
Blend all the ingredients.
Use a small amount to scrub your hands.
Remove the scrub with a warm, moist towel or rinse off with warm water.
Gently massage your hands with a hand lotion or cream.
Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Epsom salt
6 drops lemon essential oil
3 tablespoons almond oil
Stir all ingredients together until well mixed.
Pour mixture into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid.
To use, wash your hands, and then massage 1 to 2 teaspoons of the scrub into your hands. Rinse well with warm water and pat hands dry.
