All my Singles Ladies…Spa Night

Tomorrow is the dreaded Valentine’s Day. Even if you’re okay with your single status, all the pink hearts and rose petals can start make the strongest of us feel a little left out.  My best advice for surviving is this: Get together with your other single friends and celebrate being strong enough to not be in a relationship for the wrong reasons, also buy yourself some of those chocolates, you deserve them too. However, If you are running a little short of single friends opt for Plan B and have a “me” night.  Watch your favorite movies, order take out and have a spa night. Here are some recipes to get you started.

 

Oatmeal Lavender Face Scrub

1 cup ground oatmeal
1/2 cup dry lavender flowers, stripped of stalks
1/2 cup powdered milk (either whole or nonfat)
2 teaspoon cornmeal

Combine all the dry ingredients, genitally massage into damp skin and rinse with warm water.  The extra can be bagged up and kept for six months.

Sweet-and-Sour Cleanser

4 Tbsp plain yogurt
2 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp lime juice

Blend ingredients, adding cornstarch as a thickening agent if needed. Apply to face and massage 1-2 minutes. Rinse. This unique combination of ingredients leaves your skin smooth and radiant.

Easy Bath Salts

3/4 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup sea salt
1/4 cup baking soda
6-8 drops of your fave essential oil(s)

Optional: dried lavender or rose petals

Combine all the ingredients together, and store in a jar with a lid.

Julie’s Favorite Sugar Scrub

2 cups brown sugar (lightly packed)
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
1/4 cup honey

Combine all ingredients and genitally massage in to rough or dry skin and rinse with warm water.  Personally, I use it when I shower, but be careful the almond oil can make the floor a bit slick.

All of this should be administered with a batch of brownies, a dozen (or two) cookies and/or some serious ice cream.

* Please be conscious of any food allergies that you have, if you can’t eat it, it probably isn’t a good idea to rub it on your skin.
