Peppermint Pedicure Bath Bomb Recipe

Soothe tired and achy feet while you moisturize and soak your feet in this fun peppermint pedicure bath bomb recipe.  This is like a pedicure bath bomb that fizzes like a bath bomb while shea butter moisturizes your feet.  Peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus essential oils help soothe achy feet. I have an office at the local community center.  I'm a volunteer there, so I'm there several times a week working, taking the kids to karate, cleaning, or for an event.  The entire building has a concrete floor.   It kills my feet, y'all.   There are days that I'm there for 8 hours walking on the concrete.  By the time I get home, my feet ache.   I was mixing up foot soak concoctions for each use, but then I started making pedicure bombs.  They are like a bath bomb in that they fizz in the water, but they are smaller and are formulated just for feet. I use an invigorating blend that helps my feet feel better and boosts my mood with the aromatherapy.  They also have shea butter

Lemon Mojito Homemade Body Scrub for Glowing Skin

How to make a lemon mojito sugar scrub recipe. This is a simple homemade body scrub for glowing skin.  It's perfect for summer with a light refreshing scent and dry carrier oils that soak into your skin quickly. It's no secret that I love sugar scrubs. I use one on my feet every other day to keep my heels soft. I use them on my skin about once a week to keep my skin from looking dull.  In the summer, it's even more important to use one because the sweat from the heat can clog your skin. Besides that, in the summer I'm showing off more skin, so I want it to look its best.  This lemon mojito sugar scrub recipe was inspired by a summer drink, and it smells wonderful all year round. The mint is cooling on your skin, and the lemon essential oil is uplifting. Sugar scrubs are also a great inexpensive gift to give to your friends. I used to make them for my kids' teachers when they were in public school. It's a unique gift that nearly any woman can use.
