gardener's hand scrub
i like to think you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their hands.
i have yet to have my palms read but my soil stained lines just might give it away that i love to dig in the dirt.
i personally am not a glove kind of gal. and obviously manicures are not my thing.
but soil can be rough on one’s hands.
mine tend to get dry, chapped and stained from working in the garden.
but having a good nail brush and a moisturizing scrub by the kitchen sink can do the trick. below is a little recipe that is quick and easy to make and helps to clean and soften up my hands in a pinch.
gardeners hand scrub
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup coarse sea salt
1/4 cup dried lavender flowers
mix together and store in an air tight container
take a tablespoon of mix. massage and rub.
get out that nail brush and scrub.
rinse with warm water.
your hands will feel a bit oily after but it soon soaks in.
cleaned up and ready to pick the first of the blueberries.
