DIY – Lemon hand lotion

What can be better on a dark, moody day like today, than injecting a little bit of energetic lemon into our lives? I love lemons not only for their vivid, yellow color but also for miraculous properties. With the harsh winters we experience here in Poland (-20’C last year, I swear!) it’s always good to have some skincare treats at home. And since I like to try new, fun things at home (in my little apothecary) I want to share with you my new, easy peasy lemon squezzy hand lotion 😀
Packed in a little container with a heart on top of it, it can be a cute Valentine’s day gift idea for your friends and family. Who said Valentine’s day is only for ‘the one and only’?

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my little treat today. I have to say I like the color combination of yellow, pink, white with pop of green against light gray backgruond. What do you think about it?

Hi Aga! Wonderful tutorial, i love using lemon on my hands, it’s made my nails so strong recently! Can you send me an email? I have a proposition for you claire (at) hearthandmade (dot) co (dot) uk xo.

I think this is an amazing idea! I love the idea of a lemon hand lotion, as it will not only moisturize our skin, it will also leave a zesty and citrus-like smell onto our hands, which I think is just simply marvelous. Thanks for this tutorial. 😀

How much Glycerin is needed?

Maia Love

I was just wondering what size jar that is. It seems like a great size so I’d like to use the same one when I recreate this recipe as Christmas presents for my friends! Thanks so much for a great recipe!


    Hello, wow so happy you want to recreate it! 🙂 no, they weren’t big, about 7 cm. Hope your friends are going to like it! xo


How much glycerin?


    Hi Melanie, It should be enough to get the consistency of the lotion and fill the container. it’s glycerin based lotion so you can’t be wrong with the amount 🙂 Hope this helps!
