    • Gingerbread Sugar Scrub

      Homemade Gingerbread Scrub Soothe your dry skin with sensuous Gingerbread Sugar Scrub . . . or add it to a gift basket or spa jar for a gorgeous, useful yet inexpensive handcrafted gift.

      You'll Need:
      • 2 cups brown sugar - OR - 1 cup brown sugar AND 1 cup granulated sugar
      • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons ginger, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons nutmeg, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, powdered
      • 2 to 4 drops vanilla extract
      • 1 cup almond oil

      Combine all in a small bowl, blending well.

      How to Use a Body Scrub:

      1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
      2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
      3. Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
      4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
      5. Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

        This looks like a great gift , do you think I can use Coconut oil instead of Almond oil??

      Awesomely different but very useful. I think I'll need to make for traveling with grandkids that hate to go in the woods. I'm thinking of putting a little cat litter in the bottom of the bag.

      MYO Travel Potty

      I came across this idea on Pinterest, you take a bucket, a section of pool noodle, a trash bag11218 and you make your own potty bucket.

      Just line the bucket with the trashbag, slip the slit pool...
