Lemon Honey Sugar Scrub

I am guilty of putting myself last.  As a stay at home mom with two littles and a busy schedule I can forget to eat, sleep, exercise, you name it.  It started to show.  My skin is super dry from the desert winter and it’s cracking, rough, and breaking out.  I hardly ever break out anymore-but when I started to this time I went to my kitchen.

Using DoTerra Frankincense, Lemon, and Maleluca oils I created a head to scrub that leaves my skin and hair feeling properly pampered. 

In a 6 oz. airtight glass jar I combined:

4 oz. brown sugar

2 tbs. honey

3 oz. olive oil 

4 drops Maleluca

4 drops Frankincense

8 drops Lemon

In the shower I used the scrub on my skin after washing and on my hair before washing it-making sure to give my scalp a good massage.  On my skin and hair I left it like a mask to soak in and soften.  It smells so good-and tastes good too!

Maleluca is used as an astringent-its tea tree oil.  It has anti-bacterial properties.  Lemon is also astringent and just smells awesome! Frankincense is supposed to great for cell turnover which is what a scrub is all about-scrubbing away the old, dry, and flaky to show the fresh and dewey.  Even though my showers are far from the luxurious-let alone private onesI had before being a mom-this scrub makes me feel like I truly took a minute for myself.
