If you’ve got the thyme!

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.Ā  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.

D.I.Y. dahling!

Day 5 to more beautiful skin!

Hands looking older,dry and are your cuticles looking unkept? Now is the time to book and appointment for a paraffin dip and skinny dip with your hands. Paraffin treatments at salons or spas are mini hydrating vacations for your skin.

It takes about ten minutes total and will refresh your skin and moisturize it too. Follow up with a decadent hand and body lotion or cream. Take care of your hands they say so much without your saying a word.
