I’d love for you to be able to make your own Sweet Tea Sugar Scrub and Lemon Whipped Body Butter, so I’ve included some links to help you find exactly what you need!
When I was away in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago, I had a chance to get the most divine pedicure I’ve ever had. It involved almost 90 minutes of scrubbing my piggy toes and a sweet tea sugar scrub. I couldn’t help but think that those of you who’ve come here for the “Mama’s Moment Detox Bath” tips would also thoroughly enjoy this treat for tired feet. As a bonus, I’m throwing in the recipe for a follow-up lotion, Lemon Whipped Body Butter!
Moms. Women. You need to do this for yourself. Don’t just pin it, like I did. Do it. Give yourself a detox bath. ()
A few years ago, I had my first spa experience which included an aromatherapy shower, massage, and wrap. The experience was amazing, expensive, and quite the treat. When we went to Vegas, I had a similar experience, but that’s really the last time I treated myself to a nice bath. Being a busy lady is hard work, yinz.
Since someone has started potty training and the kids have no regard for bathroom privacy, I begged and pleaded for a shower with no one bugging me this evening. My mister made sure this happened tonight, major points for him!
You see, I have gone on a slight binge of coffee lately. By binge, I should clarify that I mean I had 2 cups in the past week, but that’s a lot for me. Also, I fell in love with a delicious smelling coffee scrub at I Made It! Market last weekend, but I didn’t have money with me.
Pinterest has been a great resource, even though my pin to done percentage is about 0.00002%. I found this wonderful looking coffee/sugar scrub and decided I was going to do it. A friend suggested adding cocoa, and WHOA, so glad I did. Thanks to the scrub, I feel like I took a visit to a spa, and my pores smell like I’ve been sipping on a lovely cappuccino for hours. All at a price lower than my pin to done percentage of the cost. This was a great moment for Mama.
Photo from Pinterest, my scrub is in an old salsa jar, but yay for upcycling coffee grinds and a jar!
