I’ve only been to a spa a few times in my life – partly because of cost and partly because I’m pragmatic (I don’t have time for spas!).
Yet I cannot deny the value of relaxing and pampering. We can get so stressed that we’re just running around in circles. Sometimes just stepping away and unplugging for a little bit makes us much more productive, focused, and ready to engage in life.
So here are a few recipes to have your own spa day at home for cents:
Sweet Sugar Scrub
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons light oil, such as almond, canola, or sunflower
2 tablespoons milk
Mix together all the ingredients into a smooth cream. Before bathing, massage the mixture all over your body to remove dry, flaky skin and increase circulation. Make sure you are in the bathtub, shower, or standing on a towel. Rinse your skin with warm water, then moisturize and enjoy!
5 Minute Hand Treatment
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
Massage this mixture over your fingers and the tops of your hands. Leave on for 2 minutes then rinse well with water.
These recipes come from Day 30 of 31 Days to a Younger You. Read it yourself for some additional pampering for your soul along with a fabulous foot bath recipe!
Here’s to relaxing, calming your mind, and opening your ears to hear what God has to say.
