Bath Scrub



Back in December I posted about this relaxation gift basket that I put together for a gift exchange. If you look in the front right corner, you'll see a small mason jar with something lavender in it. That's some homemade bath scrub that I put together using Martha Stewart's recipe that was published in the December 2008 issue of Living.

I wound up making enough to fill two small jars, so I kept one for myself. This is pretty good stuff! My recommendation is to either increase the epsom salts or decrease the oil (I used sunflower oil), as I thought the recipe came out a little too oily. After using it a few times now, I can attest that it moisturizes and exfoliates beautifully. Because it makes the shower a bit greasy, I use it the night before I clean the bathroom.

Yes, those wonderfully moisturizing goodies do make for a slippery tub! (Did you fall?)

No, I didn't fall. I just don't want to do an extra bathtub cleaning after I use it, which is why I've started doing it the night before I'm officially planning to clean it. I'm lazy like that. ;-)
