Okay, let’s just admit it Mom’s, sometimes SPA isn’t in our budget, or at least mine. I don’t always get a few hours to run out and be pampered from head to toe in masks and oils and lovely smelly things, although a few hours on my hand does sound nice… Nope! I’m a mom on a family budget. But I do need love too and so does my skin.
I am a firm believer in our food not just feeding our hunger pains (or munchies!) but also healing us from the inside and out! I love, love, love to use what our Earth has provided us with. Can you imagine? Everything is at your finger tips!
If you are looking for soft skin a sugar scrub is the way to go. Of course, you can run out to the store and purchase a bottle of scrub but then again, why not just add a few ingredients and cook up your own scrub? There are many different kinds of sugar scrubs you can make, so here is the first go!
(By the way, this was actually my husbands anniversary gift …. lucky him!)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Place coconut oil in a bowl and add brown sugar. Mix well.
2. Stir in extract.
3. Put scrub into glass container and label it! (You don’t want anyone eating your scrub!) Place in refrigerator until ready to use.
4. Return to fridge after use.
Say hello to soft skin!
