Fun spa night!

I hosted a girls' night out this last month and we did a spa themed night. We exfoliated our hands with a sugar scrub, then we used a pumpkin and honey moisturizing mask -after washing that off we did our nails. Also I introduced the ladies to a lip scrub that will keep your puckers nice and soft. Here are the recipes for what we used:

Sugar and Oatmeal Body scrub
1 cup coarse raw sugar or brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal (blended)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil (you can use mineral oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil instead)

*If you don't blend your oatmeal, I will warn you that this may lead to a clogged drain.
Mix together and rub all over your body then hop in the shower and rinse off.

Pumpkin moisturizing Mask
1 can pumpkin puree (the large can)
1/4 cup honey

Mix together and immerse hands in mixture for 10 minutes then rinse. I have to warn you-this was not a favorite among the women as the texture feels a bit, well slimy.

Lip Scrub-definitely a winner and so easy
make a paste out of petroleum jelly and white sugar. Apply to lips and scrub with a toothbrush. Then use a washcloth to rinse off.

So fun, so easy and most of you have these ingredients hanging out in your cupboards!!
