I love to garden and feel the earth in my hands.  What I don’t always enjoy is the after effects that dirt can leave behind on my hands at the end of the day.  This is a wonderful and simple recipe for a hand scrub that you can make anytime and keep it on hand.



1/2 cup organic sugar
3 tablespoons liquid Castile soap
1 teaspoon almond oil or any other non petroleum based oil
7 drops Clary Sage essential oil
5 drops of Melaleuca ( Tea Tree ) essential oil.



In a glass bowl,  combine all ingredients.  Pour and store in an air tight glass container.   To use,  simply scoop a small amount out and gently rub your hands together.  Rinse with warm water and pat dry.  Your hands will feel absolutely AMAZING!
