4 shopping days left!!!!
We're getting down to the wire, and I am pleased to say that I am 99.9% complete.... just a couple of last minute stocking stuffers.... and of course, the groceries....
So, with just 4 shopping days left, what is an easy, do-it-yourself gift that's sure to please?
Homemade Foot Scrub!
After being on your feet for those long and hectic shopping days, what could be more inviting than a warm soak and relaxing scrub? Sounds like heaven to me!
Here's a recipe for a foot scrub that uses ingredients you probably already have in your cupboards....
1/4 cup oatmeal (ground or not)
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons brown sugar or course sea salt
a couple drops of essential oil (your choice)
Mix together all ingredients and place them into a nice jar or container.
Add a tag with instructions: add enough water to make a semi-thick paste, soak feet in warm water for 5 minutes then apply paste to feet and massage for 10 minutes each foot; rinse with warm water; dry feet then apply a thick lotion; wear socks to help with absorption of lotion.
A nice little treat for your feet!
Have a great day! Happy Shopping ;)
