This is the first installment of Sunday Self Care. This is where I give you self care tips and recipes on Sunday so you can get the ingredients during the week, to use next Sunday. So, I am going to start simple with one of my favorites... SMOOTHING BODY SCRUB. Raw sugar exfoliates to give skin a healthy glow. Less irritating than salt, this scrub is gentle enough of most all skin types. Add a citrus for a summer refresher and a mint for those bothersome allergies.
1 cup of raw sugar
1/4 cup of light oil such as almond, grape seed or coconut
5-8 drops of essential oil or 1 tablespoon zest of grapefruit, orange or lemon.
Place the ingredients in a glass container with a lid...mason jars work good.
This scrub is best used while seated. Use your hands or washcloth.
Lightly rinse the remaining sugar off, while leaving as much oil as possible.
Use caution when exiting the tub or shower.
Enjoy your polished and moisturized skin.
