Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love

There was a time when my feet walked through sand whose grains were as fine as silk. There was a time I wore heels that were tall, delicate, and the envy of all. There were times when I would sneak into the spa and enjoy body scrubs from head to toe. There were times when I could read a book without pictures. That was before all this happened.

It started 14 years ago, the decline of my me time. It began in a Chinese restaurant of all places. I had just had a cup of tea saying a spot of tea in a Chinese restaurant doesn’t sound correct. I had just ordered, and then I had to go to the ladies room. I excused myself. I began to cry. I am not sure why I was crying. The tea had appeared and my day was going well. I was having lunch with the love of my life, my husband but I couldn’t stop crying. I knew then and there what was wrong but I needed to see for sure.

I rushed to the store, and I grabbed the test. I took the test and just like I did in school. I passed with flying colors or in this case a red line. We were having a baby. I can’t describe how happy I was, but I can tell you it was better news than thinking I lost my mind. I mean who cries over tea at a Chinese restaurant. That was the day my life changed. I began to live for my child. I gave up the fancy things in life so he could have a perfect life but I never gave up my desire to be pampered. I just had to make it fit in my budget.

That is how I came to make body scrubs. These are some Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love!

Pamper yourself by having a spa in your home. Check out these homemade body scrub recipes you'll love.

Once you buy the Manuka Honey Oil in Almond Oil you can use it in other ways.

PRI Manuka Oil from New Zealand is very gentle and can be used straight from the bottle for its antibacterial properties. It is a natural antiseptic suitable for the whole family (and pets) to use. It also has a wide range of antifungal activity. The difference from its Australian cousin Tea Tree Oil is that is has a pleasant aroma and will not burn or irritate the skin. Therapeutic Action Manuka Oil has been shown to be effective when used as an: antibacterial agent, antifungal and as an anti-inflammatory.

Manuka Oil has been shown to aid as an external application for treatment of: Abrasions — skin, abscess, acne, bed sores, blisters, boils, burns, carbuncles, cold sores, cracked skin, dandruff, dermatitis, ears and body-pierced infections, eczema, nail and fungal infections, insect bites, lice, ringworm, rhinitis skin-oily, sun burn, tinea, tonsillitis.

Suspended in an almond oil base, this highly purified essential oil has a unique floral note and high levels of active compounds to use for sore joints and inflammation. It is often used as a massage oil for lower back pain in pregnant women.

The One Thing You Should Do for Your Child that You Could

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Bloggin’ Mamas & the Florida Prepaid College Board. All opinions expressed are my own.

I recently had a conversation with my son. He wants an $800 cellphone because his “starter” cellphone isn’t good enough. I wonder did I buy him a cellphone to let me know he was on the bus and for him to call me when he was done with soccer or did I buy him a cellphone to keep up with the Jones? If you know me you know, I bought him the cheapest phone I could find that worked. You know why?

He doesn’t have a job. His phone doesn’t earn money, and I wanted to pay cash, and it would be a cold day in Hawaii before I would spend $800 on a phone for a kid. Why is it that this same mom wrote a check for thousands of dollars for something he will not even use for 18 years?

You see I like to spend money on things that matter. We live our lives with the big goals in mind. If I spend money on all the little things that do not matter the thing that matters most will be out of my grasp.

What matters most to me?

College.

Yes, college. I wanted to make sure my children have the ability to attend college and to graduate college debt free. We chose Florida Prepaid College. We were able to pay all three plans off before our oldest attended high school. We said “no” to many things along the way so we could say “yes” to the one thing that will never break, that will never get old, that will never lose value. We gave them the gift of an education.

Say no to things that don't matter so you can say yes to things that have value just like the gift of education for your children. Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan Open Enrollment is on until February 28, 2017. Use my exclusive code Deals1718 to save $25 off the application fee (normally $50) http://bit.ly/ragopenenroll #StartingIsBelieving #ad.Continue reading
