In my Outlook calendar, I have my various tasks color-coded. It’s my goal each week to have a nice balance of work-related colors and play-related colors. Purple means “personal activities” like going out for dinner with friends, getting a manicure, or a even catching up on my favorite TV shows with Evan.
December has had a lot of purple activities, and it's been so nice.
This past weekend, each night was filled with some holiday orientated activity in which I wanted to take the hostess a homemade gift. While it’s no secret that I love to bake, I wanted to change it up a bit for my gifts this year.
Over the past few months, I’ve been paying particularly close attention to the things I put on my skin, like makeup, lotion, and cleaning products. That’s why I was inspired to make this Lavender Body Scrub.
Here’s the formula.
Lavender Body Scrub
It costs about $5-$7 per jar to make these, which is a steal compared to store bought varieties. You can experiment with any oils or fragrance you like, too!
Makes 1 jar
1 jar (I like this small one from Cost Plus World Market)
1 ½ cups of Epsom salts
3 tablespoons almond oil
3 tablespoons apricot oil (or other light, fragrance free oil)
5 drops of lavender essential oil (or another fragrance you like)
Combine all ingredients in a jar. Stir until well mixed.
