DIY Tuesday- Oil for the Hands

DIY Hand Saver Essential Oil Treatment.

Our poor poor hands, they are constantly subjected to almost torture on a daily basis. Especially now with the changing of the seasons and the drying that comes with the colder winter months. That’s why I decided to do post the hand saver recipe asap, it has been a life saver for me and hopefully it will be for you too.


2 teaspoons olive oil

2 teaspoons jojoba oil

1 teaspoon unscented grapeseed oil

16 drops tea tree essential oil

12 drops lemon essential oil

1 teaspoon vitamin E oil

FYI your local trader joes should have all the oils, and the essential oils I order off Amazon.


Combine all oils in an airtight bottle (you might need a funnel), I bought a dropped bottle from the travel section at target. Shake the ingredients and label the date on your bottle. This recipe is good for about 6 months if it is kept out of heat and direct sunlight.

Apply a few drops every time you think about it, I usually do this after I wash my hands, shower and before bed. Another trick for at night is to apply a little more than you would during the day, then cover your hands with cotton gloves. In the morning your hands are soft and feel great!
