Wanna know the easiest home spa treatment ever? Well look no more, I have it right here. I made a homemade body scrub a few weeks ago from olive oil, plain ol' processed white sugar and a few drops of Grapefruit oil.
To make, mix one part oil, with two parts sugar and a few drops of essential oils and a few drops of food coloring if you like. (I did not like, so I left the color out.) Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart.
To use, put in shower and use as an exfoliator/moisturizer.
I think the body scrub was pretty darn good. The sugar almost hurt a little bit, so I think I will try Epsom salt next time, but the oil was very nice and moisturizing. I didn't even have to put lotion on after the shower! And that is saying something, considering I live in the desert. But be careful- the body scrub does make the floor of the shower a little bit slick.
