To soften the hands and feet try a simple mixture of plain white sugar and olive oil. Put some sugar in a bowl and stir in a teaspoon of oil at a time until you have thick, sand like substance. Olive oil has been used for centuries as a moisturizer, it protects the skin and helps keep moisture where it belongs. The sugar creates a wonderful, grainy scrub that dissolves quickly and easily, leaving the skin feeling super soft and naturally beautiful.
Ginger is another wonderful ingredient to use as a fresh scent for lotion or bath oils. To extract the oil from the ginger you will need to buy some large pieces of fresh ginger from the grocery store. Peel the ginger by scraping it with the edge of a spoon and then heat it slightly in a microwave oven for 30 seconds. This begins to release the oils then grate the pieces with the small holes of a cheese grater. This produces a ginger pulp that can be mixed with your homemade lotions or oils for a wonderful natural scent.
