We might be getting bogged down with our to-do lists, shuffling from the couch to the bedroom, and back to the couch. Although it may seem nearly impossible some times, we encourage you to find time for yourself—schedule it if you have to! Take advantage of a quiet home, brew a pot of tea, and complete that DIY project you’ve had pinned for months. A creative outlet can do wonders to clear your mind for a little happiness—and a home-made body scrub will do wonders for your skin!
1/3 cup oil (we used warmed coconut oil)
1 cup granulated sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Store in an airtight jar or container.
Notes: Vitamin E or olive oil also works well. You can use less or more oil, depending on how oily you want your scrub to be. We found that 1/3 cup was optimal. You can also use 1/2 cup raw sugar with 1/2 cup granulated sugar for a different texture.
And yes, it’s that easy! Stay tuned for more DIY’s and homemade recipes to get you through the day, right here on the Daily Bay!
