Yummy smelling shampoos, fancy masks… but recently I’ve been loving these little DIY shower melts. The peppermint and eucalyptus (with a touch of…

Vanilla Latte Coffee Scrub DIY

If you haven’t tried a sugar scrub yet, let me tell you, you don’t know what you are missing! I tried one for the first time last year, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Epsom Salt Bath Soak

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub DIY

I have to admit that I was always a bit wary of trying a sugar scrub for some reason. I think I just didn’t quite get what the big deal was until I tried one for the first time, and I was like, "Whoa Mama!! This is great!" The grains of the sugar exfoliate as you scrub it into your skin (hence the name) and that combined with the oil…
