Happy New Year’s 2014 !

Let’s start this year off with a girls spa day. It’s so nice to be back in the swing of things. We’ve had a busy past few months of 2013 at Moodylicious and our blogging took a detour.  Have you set any goals for this year ? We have..to Blog more ! We know we have a fabulous platform here to share products, recipes and information to make your life a bit more relaxed and fun filled. That’s just what were going to do today. We love searching the web for new ideas and here is a fabulous “Do It Yourself Salt Scrub” to make with a few friends. Have them over for some spirit’s and cheese and just let your girl’s go wild over this delicious recipe.

Our friend Libbie Summers crafted & styled this  “Grapefruit & Rosemary Salt Scrub” over on her blog “Salted & Styled” . You must stop by her site..so many delicious recipes for jams, sauces and delights.

 

Grapefruit and Rosemary Salt Scrub


Makes about 1 ½ cups

Ingredients:
1 cup kosher salt
zest of 1 grapefruit
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely minced
½ cup pure organic almond oil
a few drops grapefruit essential oil (optional)

Directions:
In a small mixing bowl, stir together all the ingredients. Pour into a sterilized jar with a tight fitting lid. (I sterilize mine by running through the dishwasher.)

To use: Stir mixture and apply to a clean body in the shower. Rinse and pat dry with a towel.

Note: Scrub will keep in an air-tight container at room-temperature for 4 months.

 

What do you think ?  Mmmmmm smells go delicious !  You can add a “Rosemary Bath & Body Oil” ….. find a few empty wine bottles with the cork , clean and dry out. Grab some fresh rosemary, separate the rosemary from the stem or leave them whole. Place a few in the bottom of the wine bottle, pour in your olive oil, cork and let set for a few days. Use a Gold Sharpie to  draw designs on the bottles ….. makes a  great hostess gift for your BFF’s.
