My weekend when not guest speaking out of town or painting a sports celebrities face is spent not only working in my makeup studio painting pretty faces and spirits but also stirring up some beauty.
I had some left over thyme from a chicken recipe I cooked for my husband and was in a lemony mood.
So here is what I whipped up…A YUMMY SCENTED and fabulous exfoliating hand and body scrub!
1/4 cup of coconut oil (can’t get enough of it) Whole Foods brand
1/4 cup Greek olive oil
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 dash of lemon essential oil (Auracacia brand)
1 sprig of thyme
Stir them all together with a whisk OR a portable hand mixer/blender. Creamy and sugar with a lemon scent twist.
After this was all done. I sprinkled the mixture with a few torn pieces of thyme. The herb thyme has benefits but I LOVE the way it looked in the scrub.
I poured from a bowl into empty jam jars.(recycle your jam jars or buy and fill Ball brand jars)
Add a mini wooden spoon and you have a sweet exfoliating gift for yourself or someone else.
Something to do over these cold wintry months and take care of your skin too.
Enjoy this from a beauty who is a true foodie. Oops almost forgot I added the zest of lemon on top of the jar before I put the lid on and shook it back and forth.
