One thing I love about preparing for something like an out-of-town conference is that I finally take the time to do some personal care that I usually neglect most of the year. I touch up my hair color, go in for a twice-a-year haircut, paint my nails, and all that other stuff that leaves me feeling pampered and indulged.
Before I leave for BlissDom, I wanted to share with you a fantastic resource that puts everything you need for healthy, natural skin care right at your (soft, exfoliated) fingertips: Simple Scrubs to Make and Give!
Stacy Karen of A Delightful Home is not only one of the fabulous co-hostesses of Your Green Resource, she's also the author of this e-book which tells you everything you need to know to whip up fantastic salt-based and sugar-based skin care scrubs. Inside, you'll find ingredient lists with helpful links on where to find what you'll need to make these scrubs, and the good news is that many of the recipes are made using very easy-to-find materials.
Stacy Karen's instructions are totally approachable; you don't have to be a whiz in the kitchen to be able to prepare these scrubs, in fact, they are so simple that they would make great projects to do with your children.
This is truly an outstanding resource to have on hand. Not only can you pamper yourself with her scrubs, you can also share these in the form of gifts for all kinds of occasions - teacher's gifts, holiday presents, birthday parties, hostess gifts, you could even host a girls night out where everyone gets to pick a recipe and whip up their own scrubs.
And at $4, it's quite a steal considering how much money you'll save yourself by not buying commercially prepared scrubs for yourself or for others. ANDDDDDDDD, from now until 2/29, get use code SortaCrunchy for 15% off!
