So, every other weekend when my son visits with his dad for the night, I plan my "reverie". I go to the video store and rent CSI and Gilmore Girls re-runs, buy junk food especially for me, then head home for a bath before I sit back in my comfy jammies and just give myself some lazy time. This recipe is what I use in my bath and wow.....I love it. Be careful when getting out, though...it tends to make the bottom of the tub slippery (make sure you rinse the tub out as well since these are home ingredients, don't want any buggie friends ruining your "me" party).
Brown Sugar Scrub
What you'll need:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup oil (coconut or olive)
- 10-15 drops fragrance made for skin usage (essential oils, most craft stores carry these)
Mix these ingredients in a bowl and voila!!! Your very own skin smoothing scrub.
*Tip-I like to get creative and add things around the kitchen like oatmeal and other time-tested ingredients. Get crazy with it and experiment, that's half the fun!
