Just a simple body scrub, now that summer is about over and the colder months will be approaching.

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 T honey
1/2 T vanilla extract

mix the sugars together, then add the oil, honey and vanilla and mix well. Store in airtight container. Use as needed.

27. bath bombs and body scrub.

My friend krissy had a wine, cheese and spa night at her place tonight. A bunch of us girls sat around and got caught up with eachother, ate treats and made fun bath treats. The pumpkin donut holes I posted about yesterday were a huge success!

First up: bath bombs.

In one big bowl, mix
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup epsom salt

In a seperate small bowl, mix together
3/4 tspn water
essential oil (about 2 tspn)
food coloring
2 T oil (we ended up adding quite a bit more b/c we were having trouble getting the bomb to stick together and come out of the mold)

Wisk in the wet ingredients into the dry. Shape into a ball or mold (we used little hearts) and put on parchment paper to dry.

They were dry and ready to take home by the end of the night.



next up:  brown sugar body scrub.
This was TOO easy!

wisk together
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2-3 Tablespoon brown sugar
scented oil or a little bit of fresh lemon juice

Stir it together with a wisk until its nice and gritty.
