Gentle Sugar Scrub
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1–2 teaspoons coconut, jojoba, avocado, or olive oil
- 1–2 teaspoons honey
Mix all these ingredients together and massage into your hands for about one minute. Then add a little water and continue massaging for a minute or less. Wash your hands. Then replenish moisture in your nails and cuticles with the Cocoa Butter Nail Conditioner (see recipe below).
Cocoa Butter Nail Conditioner
- 4 tablespoons cocoa butter
- 4 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 1 tablespoon lanolin
- 5–10 drops tea tree oil
- 2 vitamin E capsules, 400 IU each (choose natural vitamin E over synthetic, available in most health food stores)
Heat the cocoa butter over low heat in a small pot. When melted, remove from heat and let mixture cool for a few minutes. Add the oils, lanolin, and the contents of two vitamin E capsules. Stir well, store in a jar and refrigerate. Slather all over your hands, nails, and cuticles. View the video here.
