Sugar Scrubs

Due to High Altitude, freezing temps, and running heaters my skin is SUPER dry. The only thing that seems to allowing relief has been sugar scrubs. I wanted to put some of the recipes I've come up with here simply because it's fun. I am now a huge fan of them and they cost pennies when made from your cupboard.

Chai Tea Sugar Scrub
1/2 sugar (white or brown)
3 Tbsp oil (olive or coconut are awesome)

Mix together
Add:
1 Tbsp honey
contents of one Chai Tea bag

Store in water tight container. A great face and body scrub.
Be sure to rinse well as tea can settle in places you'd rather not have anything brewing!

Lemon Sugar Scrub

1/2 sugar
3 Tbsp oil (coconut or olive)
Peel of half lemon
-warm oil with peel and mix in sugar
Add:
juice of half lemon

Store in water tight container. Great for face and body.

I miss you too. I was thinking about you when I made it. Somehow it just seemed very "Miss Cole-y".
