Simple Hand Softener

Warm Oil Manicure Treatment




Do you have cracked hands, rough cuticles or dark age spots?

 I have a simple solutions that is cheap and easy to make at home.

I worked as a Mary Kay consultant for a little while and this homemade remedy can compare to their Satin Hands hand softener.
If you want a hand scrub recipe, stay tuned!!


For the Hand softener all you need is this:

1 T. Olive Oil {or coconut oil}
1 drop Lavender Essential Oil
2 plastic sandwich bags that will fit over your hands
warm towel

Yup, that's it!!

Now, what do you do?

In a microwave safe bowl put 1 Tablespoon olive oil for 3-5 seconds {coconut oil until liquid-about 15 seconds}. You want it warm, not hot. Add 1 drop lavender essential oil. Stir.





Rub the oil onto your hands and massage in. Cover your hands with the plastic bags, now place a warm towel over your hands {you can warm the towel in the microwave}.


Sit for 5-10 minutes. Rinse your hands with warm water, massaging the oils away. Gently pat your hands dry. 

That sounds simple enough right!? The people at the salon are not going to be happy that you are now saving loads of money by doing this at home! 

I had a little oil left over, coconut oil after it cools down will solidify again, so I poured it into a container for a great lotion!!




Second step to your Homemade Mary Kay Satin Hands regimen:

Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Scrub
