I use this three times a week to keep my hands soft. I actually prefer it to a leading 'silky like satiny hands' ::cough cough:: expensive set.

First mix:

cup sea salt
cup olive oil
choice of fragrance oil-optional

Mix together well and store in a clean and labeled container.

To use:

Scoop out a tbsp or so, gently massage into hands and cuticles.
Rinse with warm water, pat almost dry, and immediately apply a good hand cream/lotion.

Good stuff...
