Valentine's Day is a celebration of the love in your life--and not just romantic kind. It's about sharing your gratitude for the people who make your day a little brighter and a little sweeter. What better way to honor this love than by giving them this sugar body scrub to shake off the winter blahs?
Full of cinnamon and roses--long considered natural love potions--this scrub inspires us to invoke the divine Aphrodite and to relish the simple hedonism of a long bubble bath (maybe with a buddy!), pampered skin, and a rosy outlook on life. Pair it with my Aphrodite's Bath Salts, and you've got a match made in heaven!
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup olive oil or coconut oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup rose petals
30 drops cinnamon essential oil
30 drops rose oil or rose water
10 drops clove oil
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and store in a mason jar or other airtight container. Makes about 1 cup. Enjoy!
