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

Ingredients:

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

Ingredients:

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.
