i came across a lovely idea that i just had to share involving brown sugar (something most of us have handy in the cupboard to add to our morning steel cut oatmeal) and aromatherapy oil (something all of us should have handy to invoke a dose of tranquility at any moment).
you need 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 20 drops of your fave aromatherapy oil to make a sugar body polish. mix the sugar and oil together (in the shower makes it less messy), and rub over your body (with the water turned off), to exfoliate dead skin cells and to smooth your skin. rinse off and viola, your body is sugared and soft!
