works for me: sugar scrub

Is your skin starting to look a bit tired? Here is a lovely homemade sugar scrub.

Herbed Sugar Scrub

:: Snip a few sprays of an aromatic herb (I favor lavender and rosemary) into a microwaveable but non-glass bowl.
:: Pour about a cup of olive oil over top.
:: Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave.
:: Let cool.
:: Add a cup of sugar.
:: Get in the tub.
:: SIT DOWN as this stuff is slippery.
:: Scrub yourself with the sugar scrub.
:: Scrub all over.
:: Rinse off.
:: Use a wee bit of soap if needed/desired.
:: Take care getting out, as you may be slippery when wet.
:: Towel off.
:: Admire your smooth lovely skin.

I am the wife of a man I call My Gift from a Generous God. I am mama to two lovely children, Dandy and Chickadee that became ours in September 2006 in a court-room in Siberia. I am the daughter of two people whom I love and admire. One of them, my dad, is a new (Dec 06) paraplegic.

In my previous life (B.C. - before children), I was a college English teacher, specializing in composition and ESL composition.
