I thought I’ll post a quick update on what I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this morning. As I like to say, small things bring lots of happiness!
I’ve been busy and kind of tired lately to even mix up a simple face scrub. I kept nagging myself every evening and feeling guilty for not looking well enough after my skin, but after cycling home after work all I could think of was a comforting dinner and a lazy evening on the sofa…
But enough is enough, this morning after having a nice cup of coffee I mixed up a coffee & honey face exfoliator and this easiest in the world body scrub that cheered me up big time! I was planning on making a lovely sugar and cinnamon scrub and was convinced I had some ground cinnamon in my spice cupboard… But all I found was an empty bottle… luckily I had a drop of Cinnamon Essential Oil which worked perfectly.
Homemade Sugar and Cinnamon Body Scrub
For some reason today I used spoons instead of scales… But then I thought it might be handier for the readers, as you might not necessarily have scales in your kitchen.
7-8 tbsp brown sugar
11-12 tbsp Thisle Oil
1tsp cinnamon or 1-2 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
In a jar, mix the sugar with the oil and then add the ground cinnamon (or the essential oil).
After the shower, massage the scrub into your skin, pay more attention to your feet, elbows and knees. Wash it off with warm water. Just be careful, this scrub will make your bath or shower floor slippery!
I chose Thisle oil because it is an excellent source of essential fatty acids such as Vitamin F and Omega 3 & 6. It’s good for all skin conditions, especially suitable for oily skin and large pores.
The smell of cinnamon is so comforting, try this scrub in the evening, before bed! Good night!
