This has been a long week. Actually, it feels as if it’s been a never ending week- one day blurs into the next and before you know it weeks have gone by. Really cold, snowy weeks. Ohio winters can make you feel that way sometimes. Especially during the extra snowy months- every day looks like the day before (only sometimes with MORE snow). It can make a person a little stir-crazy while they’re counting down the days until the weather breaks.
So we have to get creative when it comes to taking our minds off everything that’s happening outside the window (at least I do). For me, I need an escape. I’m basically in hibernation mode right now so I need something that will float my mind somewhere outside of my sweatpants and cozy mug of hot cocoa.
I need a spa day.
Since I’m snowed in- the spa has to come to me and this next recipe is the perfect addition to my at-home pampering session! Pink clay is wonderful for refreshing winter skin. It gently cleanses and exfoliates while drawing out toxins and impurities. Pair this with a hot bath and a few candles and my winter blues are out the door.
It’s just what the doctor ordered…
Pink Clay Spa Scrub
1 cup Liquid Castile Soap
3 tsp Kaolin Clay
1 Cups Sugar
Simply mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Gently massage into damp skin and rinse with warm water. For extra benefit, follow with a moisturizing body lotion.
