Scrub, Scrub, a Dub, Dub!

Well, I tapped on the Mind and now feel I Must give you a Wonderful Tip for the Body as well. So, pamper yourself & enjoy how smooth and fabulous your skin feels after you try this Scrub.

This home-made pumpkin body scrub is fun to make throughout the winter season.  In the cold of winter our skin dries out and we really need to exfoliate.  Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which is soothing, honey is hydrating, and olive oil has vitamin E and antioxidants.

If at all possible use organic pumpkin for this body scrub eliminating any preservatives. After all we are making a scrub not a Pie. Smile   The recipe is from Erika Katz, author of “Bonding Over Beauty”. 

                      Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • You can also add a small amount of powdered cinnamon or clove, or a drop of vanilla, to make it more uplifting.  All three should be added in small amounts..just a drop or two.  Clove, is said to be an aphrodisiac, and cinnamon can be irritating if applied directly to the skin.
