Before I got married, quit teaching, moved to Iowa and started having babies, I thought I lived on a budget.
I relied a little too heavily on retail therapy at times and sadly brought some credit card debt into our marriage. I wish I hadn't, but I did.
One of my favorite splurges was a trip to a certain overpriced store full of lotions, soaps and scrubs. Oh, how I miss it!
Now I make my own hand and foot scrub. It's super-easy!
It takes just three ingredients. Oil, salt (sugar works too!) and essential oil. Here's how:
That's it! Now add it to a cute jar, tie a piece of raffia or a ribbon around the top and you have a great little gift for your mom! Or yourself.
keep a small jar by my kitchen sink. It works great to get funky odors
off my fingers when I'm cooking (like garlic or onion), and it helps
restore my hands after I work in the garden. My hands are very clean and
moisturized and smell great too!
