I was so excited to do what I love: have new and old friends over to talk about health! Trouvés has a new website and blog up and I wanted to do a little gathering as well as an Essential Oils 101 workshop with oil “cocktails.” I put together some cute gift bags for everyone with some of the bags containing an extra surprise gift of a homemade Trouvés candle, soap, or matchbox.
Everyone also made their own sugar scrub with essential oils – healthy rosy skin just in time for shorts and sandal season! I bought a case of the 4 oz. ball jars for this workshop – I love how small and cute they are. I love making my own beauty products because you can make it for pennies compared to purchasing at the store. Of course, I don’t make all of my own products…yet. 😉 I still love going to the beauty store and buying beauty products like I did today- I bought a nail buffer and 3-free nail polish (meaning, better for your health)- that will be my next post.
I looked at a bunch of recipes for sugar scrubs and came up with an easy one, below. Okay, I’m off to plant some spring-blooming bushes I just bought- photos to come…
Trouvés Sugar Scrub for summer skin
1/2 cup brown or white sugar
1/4 cup olive oil (or other oil)
1/4 tsp. almond or argan oil
2-4 drops essential oil (We used Young Living, so I just put 2 drops as it is potent.)
Mix well and store in a small glass jar. Use within 2-3 months.
