Have you ever heard someone say "if you have any left over serums or creams, apply them to the backs of your hands!" This is because after our face & neck, our hands tend to show our true age as well as any environmental factors which may impact them.


A lot of hand creams contain artificial fragrances which can react with UV rays and cause pigmentation and fine lines on the skin. This is one great reason to create your very own and know exactly what is in it!

DIY Hand Lotion Recipe


• 100ml pump bottle

• 1/2 cup Sweet Almond Oil

• 1 tablespoon Candelilla Wax

• 1 tablespoon Babassu Butter

• 20 drops Sandalwood 10% essential oil

• 20 drops Jasmine 3% essential oil


1. Add the Sweet Almond Oil, Candelilla Wax & Babassu Butter to a small glass bowl or measuring cup.


2. Place the glass bowl in a saucepan partially filled with water and bring to a gentle boil until completely melted. Stir regularly.


3. Let the mixture cool down and add the essential oils until it becomes opaque and starts to solidify.


4. Pour the lotion into the pump bottle and allow the lotion to settle.
