Back to Basics: Mother’s Day Edition

Military MomAhh Mother’s Day… A day to toss your feet up, be pampered by your loved ones and enjoy some appreciation for all that you do.  Yes, I’m sure you will still be elbow deep in laundry and dishes and dinner and running to sports games, but here are a few ‘basics’ to pamper yourself!  First, who doesn’t love the idea of a soothing facial?  Give your skin a treat!

In a small bowl, mix:

3 Tbsp baking soda

1 tsp honey

3 tsp milk

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp olive oil

Apply the mixture to your face using a circular light scrubbing motion.  Let this sit for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.  The baking soda will provide gentle exfoliation while the honey and oil add some moisture back in to your skin.

Now that you are feeling refreshed, let this natural sugar scrub do a little magic for the rest of your tired skin!  I love making a larger batch of this, keeping some in a handy container near the shower and putting the rest into cute containers as gifts to friends!  Make this ahead of time and treat the Mothers in your life as well.

2 ¬Ω cups granulated sugar

¬Ω cup extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp lemon juice

15 drops of lemon essential oil

Mix it well and store it in a pretty jar!

 

Happy Mother’s Day from Sarges List!
