This summer has been pretty hard on my hands. Between the sun, the heat, projects around the house and the yard my hands are getting pretty rough.
Throw in a newborn and all the hand sanitizing that comes with it and my poor hands don’t stand a chance of staying nice and moisturized. I decided to throw together a quick sugar hand scrub with lavender and coconut oil to help smooth and moisturize my hands.
Since I’m taking care of a toddler and an 8-week old I don’t have a lot of extra time for DIY Projects right now. So I wanted to create a quick and easy scrub that doesn’t require much time or effort.
This exfoliating scrub is made with only 5 ingredients; sugar, coconut oil, lavender essential oil and lavender buds and can be thrown together in less than 5 minutes!! Just melt your coconut oil and combine it with sugar. Then mix in your lavender oil and lavender buds. It’s seriously that simple!

The sugar provides a gentle exfoliation to smooth and polish your hands. While the coconut oil restores moisture to your skin. Lavender essential oil not only gives this scrub a beautiful floral scent, but it also has the aromatherapy benefits of promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.
I decided to create a FREE jar label as a thank you for reading my blog. Use them to turn this Lavender hand scrub into a quick and inexpensive hostess or birthday gift!!!
Lavender Sugar Hand Scrub with Coconut Oil
1 1/2 cup – Sugar

20 drops – Lavender Essential oil
1 tsp – Lavender buds *These are totally optional but add a nice pop of color and texture.
- Melt coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for 10-15 seconds at a time until fully melted. If the coconut oil is warm to the touch let it cool slightly before adding the sugar.
- Add sugar and mix until the coconut oil and sugar are fully combined
