DIY: Body Scrub

Wouldn’t it be perfect if we were able to go to the spa on a daily basis and have people pamper us and tend to our every beck and call?

I mean really, let’s take a minute to daydream about this [cue the daydream sound effectJ]…

Sounds amazing right? Well I am a firm believer in treating and pampering ourselves as much as we can but I also know that sometimes  while our bodies, minds, and spirits may scream “I NEED A SPA DAY!” our wallets may say something else!

Good news is you don’t have to pay BIG bucks to have a spa treatment, all you need is a few ingredients and 3 days and you can have your own spa-perience in the comfort of your own home.

Below is a cheap and savvy way to exfoliate your body with everyday ingredients that we have around the house. Give it a try; your skin will thank you! J

DIY: Sugar Scrub
 Ingriedients:

½ cup granulated sugar 
1 tsp. honey
2 TBL spoons olive oil
Small mixing bowl
Wisk
Small jar w/lid or plastic container w/lid

Directions:

Combine honey and olive oil into sugar gradually in a small mixing bowl.

You may add a drop or two of your favorite scented oil into the mixture [I like to use some lavender oil].

Wisk lightly until all ingredients are blended well.

Place mixture in a small jar on counter top for 3 days.

Use before bath or shower as a skin exfoliant.

*mixture is good for 2 weeks

  1. I use white sugar for a less abrasive feeling on the skin especially if being used on the face!
