I love being a Mom, but sometimes it is nice to just take a break. You know, to get some “Mommy Time” in… After a lovely Spring Break (I’m an Adjunct Professor), classes resumed and two days into my work week, I had already reached the I-need-a-break point. It was with great anticipation that I looked forward to the 8pm moment that both children would be in bed and I would be able to take a long warm shower to wash away the day that had started at 5:30am and had continued non-stop from that moment on. And what better way than to treat myself to a nice body scrub, leaving my skin soft and smooth and my soul happy? Scrubs (to me) are always a luxury treatment. The ones I really like are too expensive for regular use, so it was time to invent one that wouldn’t leave me with the I-just-washed-$25-down-the-drain feeling.
Both the brown sugar and oatmeal exfoliate, while the oatmeal also soothes the skin. The coconut oil moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft and silky. (The scrub smells so good, you’ll want to take a spoon and start eating it. Resist the temptation.)
