This hand lotion recipe is so quick and easy. It’s perfect for a gift or even just a little DIY to keep around your own home.
Although we are well through winter, I still think a good hand lotion recipe is necessary. I have been SO dry this year! This lotion has really helped me though and only requires three ingredients. Since I started doing DIYs I have discovered hand cream, candles, chapstick and most other things I use all day can be so easily made at home!
What You Need for Your Handmaid Lotion

Start by whipping up your shea butter user a wisk attachment. You really can’t over mix this so turn it on your highest setting and let it whip for a minute or so!
Once you have it nice and fluffy, add in 1/4 cup of coconut oil and mix it in really well as well.
As it was whipping I put in 4-8 drops of essential oil. I first tried to put in some frankinsense but that wasn’t the best lotion scent. (It’s more of a room mist scent!) I opted for a more citrus scent with lemon and wild orange.
I used a spatula to put it into a small mason jar I found at the dollar spot, and I was done! How easy would this be to whip up for neighbor gifts for Christmas?! I think I’ll be doing this along with some other home made things such as hand soap and bath salts for gifts.
Be sure to check out this recipe for bath salts, these DIY chapsticks, and this sugar scrub that is my all time favorite.
