I don’t know about you, but I could use more self-care in my daily routine that won’t take precious time away from my already overflowing plate. I also have limited money to spend on the things I want more than need, which I call my “luxury funds”–Oooooo, “luxury funds”…doesn’t that just make spending that money seem more…LUXURIOUS…no matter how big or small that fund may be. Oh, ya. Just like we all have the same 24 hours to use, and must prioritize where our times goes, we have to prioritize where our “luxury funds” go. No matter how I would LOVE to have more hours in the day and days in the week, it simply cannot happen; however, there are ways we can make our “luxury funds” stretch. For example, one way I choose to spend my “luxury funds,” which is imperative for me is my premium clinical grade skin care that guarantees results, delivers results, and I won’t live without–you only get one face and that is the first thing people see and 90% of your selfie! Haha! Another person may choose to use their “luxury funds” on a pair of shoes, an outfit, a spa treatment…you get the idea.
1-2 tsp, or 1-2 T a fragrance oil, essential oil, or combination of your choice to the strength of your choice (different oils have different potentcies)
1) Mix all the ingredients together until even incorporated. If it is too wet, add more sugar; and vice versa, if the mix is too dry add more sugar.
2) Fill clean glass containers with the sugar scrub mix, and close with an airtight lid.
3) Use as your last step in the shower by taking a palm full and rubbing over various parts of your body to exfoliate in circular motions. Rinse the sugar off, and the oils will stay to hydrate your skin. Proceed to dry off as normal, and finish your shower routine.
NOTE: I usually make a huge batch and fill a load of glass jars I have saved and cleaned (and reuse each time I made more). I save glass jars that I have cleaned from salsa, and various other kitchen ingredients, as well as canning jars; I do, however, make sure my fingers can reach the bottom so I don’t need a spoon to get it all in the shower.
