A Spin on DIY

All Natural Pampering


I like to paint my nails every Sunday before I go to bed.  I have a big basket of nail polish in my bedroom, and I choose a color that will give me inspiration to get me through the busy week. It’s not that I’m too frugal to pay for a manicure; I just can’t find the time to pamper myself. My last haircut was given to me by my mother (who is not a hairdresser) and my husband the time before that. Yikes.


After spending the summer in the sun, my skin is dry and feels like it needs a spa treatment. I have an all natural recipe that will revitalize and replenish your skin, and all you have to do is collect the ingredients from your kitchen. Ready to be energized? Here is the simple recipe.


Lemonade Sugar Scrub

½ cup coconut oil (the best and most inexpensive place to buy coconut oil is at Grocery Outlet)

1 ½ cups sugar

2 tablespoons honey

10 drops of lemon essential oils or the juice of a lemon


Mix these ingredients until the consistency is that of wet sand. That’s it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. This scrub can be used on your face, body, hands and feet, anywhere.  Take it with you in the shower and scrub away. This simple scrub in a Mason jar also makes a great party favor or hostess gift. Who doesn’t love something that smells great and moisturizes your skin? You can also add lavender oil to the scrub to make you feel relaxed or peppermint oil to awaken your senses.  These all natural ingredients are good for your skin and smell so incredible that you just might want to take a bite, but don’t. Happy scrubbing.
