Royal Hand Cream DIY

Essentials Video: Royal Hand Cream

After the dry winter months, sometimes our hands need a little special TLC. This fantastic Royal Hand Cream is a great way to keep your hands silky smooth.  But what makes it “royal”? The essential oils in this blend have a rich history among the royalty. Bergamot and Neroli were often worn by the Princess of Nerola (she is Neroli’s namesake after all). Additionally, Frankincense has been dubbed the “King of Oils” and was one of the gifts brought by the Magi for young baby Jesus. And what would a king be without his queen? Rose, aptly named the “Queen of Essential Oils”, rounds out this beautiful hand cream that is truly fit for royalty.

  1. I bought a tub of unscented evening primrose oil cream right before it was discontinued. Can I rebatch and add shea butter to this to make it more nourishing? If I rebatch, should I add a preservative?

    1. You could try, but since this isn’t something we haven’t done ourselves, we cannot say. An additional preservative would likely be needed.

  2. I found that I was not a big fan of diffusing rose absolute, so I found this recipe while looking up other ways I could use it. I really love this recipe and will be making more. I did not use the evening primrose, though. Instead I used the Plant Therapy unscented olive lotion. Really nice, everyone at work likes it too.

  3. I made this for Mother’s Day gifts… my mom, coworkers, and I love the scent! And it is an amazing moisturizer!! This doesn’t sting like most when my hands are so dry and cracked. My thumbs looked like hamburger from washing and using hand sanitizer so much, but in the 1 week using this, I see such an improvement! Great products and recipe

  4. I took the plunge a bought rose absolute, then made this hand cream. It was life changing in preventing the dryness and cracking skin on my hands this winter. Love it!

      1. Can you please help me understand this. Wouldn’t 2 ounces weight be different then liquid 2 ounce? Just trying to figure out what the recipe is calling for. Weight or liquid?

        1. You are correct, there is some variance between 2 ounces in weight or volume. However, when we’re talking about dilution rates and how many drops of essential oils to use, it’s in volume.

          1. 2 ozs of oil is measured only in a measuring cup you use for baking. Solids are measured by weighing.

  5. I agree with above, can you make this synergy so I can buy it premixed? The combo sounds fantastic, and my hands (and my hubby’s) definitely need some TLC since winter is still here.

    1. That is an excellent idea that we can pass along! In the meantime, you might try the Anti Age or Soft Skin synergy.

  6. PT please make and sell this so I can buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It sounds freaking incredible. The only ingredients I have are bergamot and frank so I can’t make this until I buy the rest. It sounds amazing for real though

  7. This sounds divine! If I don’t have that specific Frank, can I use a different one? Would it change the scent completely?

    1. Jessica, there will be a bit of a scent change, but it won’t make a huge difference and still provide those great Frankincense benefits 🙂 Frankincense Frefreana is just a bit more sweet smelling than the other varieties.

      1. I am going to make this with Frank Carteri, It sounds divine! I usually make my own body butters but this sounds like a much easier substitute when I dont have time to melt and mix everything. I’ve been eager to try the primrose also! Thanks PT!

  8. I finally got all the ingredients to make this and I LOVE it! The hand cream smells divine and is so soothing. Thank you Plant Therapy!

  9. Trying this! Will have to buy evening primrose, but definitely want to try this for rough winter skin??

    PS – could you use healing balm instead of the cream??

    1. Brandi, you could absolutely give that a try. Just keep in mind that the healing balm includes beeswax and has a much harder consistency than a cream 🙂

    1. Maria, Neroli has a pretty unique aroma, but if you need a substitution, try something along the lines of Palmarosa or Lavender 🙂

    1. Jessica, you can definitely use this every day. Using it even a few times throughout the day won’t desensitize you from the aroma 🙂

  10. I would love to try this! Living in Africa though, so I doubt I’ll be able to find evening primrose cream – would shea butter be a good substitute? Thanks!

  11. Definitely going to try this out. I need to get some evening primrose cream. I have oil but this sounds just like what my eczema needs!

  12. This sounds lovely but I am missing Rose. I will have to look for a substitute in my oils. I am already going to sub the Franks blend for the Frereana.

    1. Beverly, Neroli is really very unique and it’s hard finding a suitable substitution. I will link you to our fragrance wheel, which can help you make your decisions. You’ll notice that Neroli sits in the floral-fresh section, next to Lavender Fine and Palmarosa, which would be its closest fragrance substitution. I hope this helps!

    1. Belle, you sure can! Just keep in mind it will have a completely different consistency, but will still smell divine 🙂

  13. This is very similar to the facial serum I make. I use almond oil though. I love this combination of oils. They smell wonderful. I use it on my face before I go to bed and my husband always says I smell so nice.

  14. This sounds divine! I wonder if it would work as well with evening primrose oil?? I have everything else to try it out! Thank you for another great recipe, PT!
