Scrub-a-dub-dub

We made a foaming sugar scrub last night, scented passionfruit mimosa (the same scent as our Georgia O'Keefe soap) and I kinda sorta wanted to eat it. But I didn't. But I wanted to. It's been a while since we've made scrubs... I used to make them constantly. I was a total scrub ho, and even sent scrubs to three swaps I was in (a different recipe each time). Why do I love using scrubs so much?

1. they make my skin ohhhhh sooooo soft
2. they get rid of dry, flaky skin
3. they're luxurious... I feel like I'm truly pampering myself when I use one.

So we went back to a tried-and-true recipe that we'd used before, and I forgot how much I liked it... making it and using it. Maybe I'll do some R&D on this recipe and offer scrubs in my shop in the future. Jon also wants to play around with perfume at home (at work, he has particular fragrance projects he has to do, but he really wants to just play), but the raw materials are kind of expensive. But we can play around with single note FOs and EOs and make some fragrances of our own!

That's about it for today... to recap: Mary shouldn't be allowed near yummy-smelling scrubs when she's hungry because they make her want sweets. Bad scrub, bad.

I'm a total sucker for scrub too. That's why I started making a "Scrub of the Month" recipe on my blog. It was just an excuse for total self indulgence. :)

I haven't tried a sugar scrub yet, I really need to move that up list list of things to try.


Sounds like I am really missing out :)
