One of the great ways to relax at home is to soothe your skin with the best hand lotion that you can find.
When you make your own homemade lotion you can triple its relaxing effects by giving yourself (or your partner) a nice massage with it and by adding a few drops of essential oil to derive a specific aromatherapy benefit from it.
Here is a quick, easy and natural homemade hand lotion recipe that you can make at home. I think it’s the best hand lotion recipe you can whip quickly and without too many ingredients.

LUSH used some of their easy aromatherapy recipes when they made their ginger body and hand lotion.
Ginger root has warming properties and it is combined with other essential oils that promote relaxation and calmness: jasmine, ylang ylang, rose and geranium. This warming and vegan natural hand lotion also contains almond oil and cocoa butter to soften and tone your skin.
Some people say that the best hand lotion is the Handy Gurugu Hand Cream by LUSH. It is a natural hand lotion that contains fair-trade shea butter and rose water.
