The Witch’s Book of Self-Care has recipes meant to empower by offering ample ways to be more proactive and take charge in the taking care of oneself. Self-care is often times viewed as boring, unnecessary or even indulgent. Others must come first. I have been guilty of this thinking and doing on more than one occasion. Thankfully this little book offers some easy, fun, and creative ways to gently remind us to stay on track in remembering our needs. A little side of magic doesn’t hurt either. Scrub, soak and hydrate. Be a bit selfish. By all means, cut cords with people and habits that not longer serves you. On that note, these days, I like to start small and on a free afternoon with nothing better to do than raid the cabinets for ingredients and in need of much self-care, starting small is just what I do. This three ingredient scrub will surely be a regular in your self-care regime after you try it.
Where to buy cute little jars should you not have any from the yogurts? Here: Vanilla Sugar Cookie Scrub list from my Amazon Storefront of course. Jars and other accouterment, like
Vanilla Sugar Cookie Scrub
Things You Will Need:
1 1/4 coconut oil
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 t vanilla extract
4 ounce glass container with lid (I like reuse the yogurt jars)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with spatula or large spoon. Add sugar scrub to the empty jar. Cap. Personalize anyway you like after the cap is sealed. Fabric, parchment paper, ribbons, raffia/straw or twine. I like to store mine at room temperature. When ready to use, massage and rinse with warm water. Ingredients make for a slippery shower or bathtub after scrub so make sure to clean any residual scrub or oil residue for safety. Pat skin dry. Drink some water. This is always a great idea after any “spa” self-care treatment in my book.
Substitute vanilla using all spice for a gingerbread scrub or cinnamon for a snickerdoodle…
Until Next Time…
