ALL WASHED UP


Hand washing:


What used to be a perfunctory action has now become something we do with complete focus. When I wash my hands you can bet I’m singing Happy Birthday twice, maybe even three times depending on the situation, or finding creative ways to count to 20 (naming 20 spices in my head, 20 movie stars from the 1950’s, 20 different emojis). Hand washing is now an act of control in an out of control world.

 

  

 


It may sound silly, but having a pretty soap makes an act that is so often repeated a little bit more pleasurable. These soaps take you somewhere else in that moment; the satisfying smoothness of the Golda Soap in your hands, the different colors and dimensions you can get lost in with the Soaprocks Soaps or the smokey scent of Palo Santo when you use a bar of Catherine Rising Upstate Soap. It makes me look forward to the process and takes the ho-hum mundanity out of it all.



 



Hand sanitizer:

Have you ever used so much hand sanitizer? When something becomes so ubiquitous in your life, finding a way to make it feel special goes a long way. Most smell medicinal or maybe the ubiquitous scent of lavender. But the hand sanitizer from Amass smells like Thieves oil, with the warming scents of cinnamon, eucalyptus and clove. When the alcohol flashes off you’re left with hands gently softened by aloe vera and delightful soft traces of Thieves.




 



Hand cream:

Now that your hands are squeaky clean, let’s try to get those hands back in shape. All this washing and sanitizing can make them feel incredibly parched so a hard working hand cream is essential. The Lanolips hand creams sink in uber-fast and never feel greasy. I have them placed all over the house, reaching for them every time I walk past one of my stashes so I can get my hands back on track.




The Grown Alchemist Persian Rose & Argan Extract cream is more lightweight, but still delivers serious moisture with a pure rose scent that’s straight from the garden. 


You can’t go wrong with any of these, and your hands will thank you either way.
