Scrub it for the spring!

Good morning world!
This morning on green carpet smells reeeeaallly nice :)
Why? Because I just made my wonderful body scrub with light and awaking aroma for spring day and already tried it in the shower :)
I know many women talk about making all or most of the body cosmetics at home, but great part of them never do, because it's a fuss to do it every time. Well- this one is very simple and you can make a lot of it at once :)

So what goes in:
  • grinded pure sea salt (I have Tidman's soothing sea salt with too big crystals)
  • grinded fairtrade organic coffee (used from yesterdays decaf latte cup)
  • some chopped organic fresh mint or dried peppermint 
  • organic olive oil (same I use for cooking, salad, facials etc)
  • mix of essential oils I like. Mine is called Aphrodite and contains ylang ylang, white grapefruit, patchouli, sweet orange. 
Proportions: how ever you like, I don't like mine too liquid though.
I placed in a nice screw top container and it will now last for the whole spring I believe, as I don't have to use a handful to cover all the areas neccessary, just a pinch actually.

Gives you a nice massage in the shower, smooth skin and a moment of aroma therapy that wakes you up in the morning :)

  2. I made one more of these as a gift for someone, and I came up with the name "Afrodithe's morning coffee" :)
