All right. Today marks the first day of “What to Make Mom for Mother’s Day”. Like I said yesterday, all week I will be giving recipes and directions to food and crafts. You can pick one or all of them for Sunday (which is Mother’s Day). And the best part? You don’t have to use this just for one specific holiday. These will be good for birthdays, christmas, easter, or if you end up in the dog house.
So, to start off easy, let us start with a do-it-yourself body scrub.
Lemon Brown Sugar Scrub
1/4 cup coarse brown sugar (to gently exfoliate without drying)
1 cup grapeseed oil* (to moisturize)
1/4 cup grated lemon peel (to invigorate your senses)
Mix together and put in a jar. Tie a bow around it and hand over the gift to the lucky woman (or I guess, man?)
See? Super easy. You can find grapeseed oil at any co-op (organic store) or a specialty Indian store.
