All that Spring Cleaning scrubbing can be rough on your hands! Reward your hard work with a little DIY pampering. This easy and natural whipped coconut oil hand cream can be personalized with your favorite essential oil. I chose a lemongrass oil I brought back from Thailand because it reminds me of relaxing on the beaches of Krabi on our honeymoon! At the end of this post I’ve also included my favorite free printables for tackling Spring Cleaning projects around the house. Pretty printable lists always make chores a little more fun!
- 1/4 heaping cup of coconut oil, I love Viva Labs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- essential oil of your choice, for fragrance
You will also need: hand mixer, small container for storage
- Add heaping 1/4 cup of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 15 drops of essential oil of your choice into mixing bowl. Feel free to adjust the amount of essential oil, for a more potent or subtle fragrance.
- Using a hand mixer, whip ingredients for 5 minutes until fluffy. The finished product should resemble the consistency of buttercream frosting. Using a spatula, scoop contents into a small, resealable container. Store at room temperature.
This DIY whipped coconut oil hand cream also makes a fantastic, budget-friendly, handmade gift!
A perfect treat for moms, teachers or anyone in your life who could use a little pampering.
