Scrub Your Way To Glowing Skin

One of my favorite splurges is a good exfoliating body scrub! My two preferred scrubs? Origins salt scrub in Sanctuary is a spa scent that always relaxes me. Bliss body scrub in Vanilla & Bergamot has a lighter scent that does not linger, allowing you to use your favorite fragrance after you shower. There is nothing softer than freshly exfoliated shoulders....except a baby's butt!

With the horrible state of everybody's financial well being, right now, it might be smart to skip the indulgences. You do not have to skip the body scrub, however! Just make your own with the following recipes. Store the mixture in Mason Jars or even Tupperware! :

Brown Sugar Baby

1 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup almond or olive oil

  • dash of cinnamon
  • 5 drops of vanilla extract

  • Orange essential oil (found in any health food store.)

Salty Wench

  • 1 cup of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • any essential oil (my favorites are lemongrass, lavender or peppermint)
