Face scrubs, body scrubs and foot scrubs are common natural beauty practices these days, but now hand scrubs are beginning to become an important addition to our beauty regime.

Scrubs have a huge number of fantastic health and beauty benefits. They remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil, they unclog pores and clean, they moisturize deep and they’ve even been found to provide an immunity boost by stimulating blood circulation.

With a limited number of natural hand scrubs on the market it is up to us to make our own using high quality natural ingredients and in this blog post I’ll be sharing three of the best hand scrub recipes from fellow bloggers around the blogosphere.

Hand Scrub Recipe #1
DIY Almond Hand Scrub from

This is a fantastic simple recipe involving just three ingredients that everyone has access to: almonds, organic olive oil and honey (or agave nectar).

It is perfect for getting rid of dead skin cells and deeply nourishing and moisturizing – especially during winter months.

Here’s how to make your own DIY almond hand scrub.

Hand Scrub Recipe #2
DIY Lemon, Olive Oil & Sugar/Salt Hand Scrub from

Again this is another really simple recipe containing just four ingredients. Olive oil helps to moisturize the hands, lemon cleans and freshens and is especially effective at eliminating pungent odours such as garlic, and the sugar and salt combination helps to exfoliate.

Katie Goodman, the woman behind this recipe, also suggests that a jar of this hand scrub would make an ideal gift idea.

Here’s how to make this lemon, olive oil and sugar/salt hand scrub.

Hand Scrub Recipe #3
Tangy Hand Scrub from Oakwood Aromatics

This recipe was featured on Channel 4’s TV programme Kirstie’s Handmade Britain and is perfect as a luxurious gift – even if that is for yourself!

To make this recipe you simply need olive oil, sugar, a few drops of your favorite essential oil, a pinch of dried herbs (e.g. rosemary, thyme or lavender) and a fresh lemon or lime.

This recipe is great since you have free license to use a variety of different ingredients so you can make a hand scrub that suits you.
