Winter Sugar Scrub

Spring is in the air. The Pileated Woodpeckers are whocking across territories. The little chipmunks are making tracks in the snow again and the ground is warming around the roots of trees. The day is noticeably longer at 47 degrees latitude and the sun much higher in the sky.

I'm already dreaming of sun kissed skin and mojito's in my garden hammock. This sugar scrub will surely slough those dead cells of winter away.

What you'll need

Mason Jar

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup lavender flowers dried

1/3 cup grapeseed oil-or hemp oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

1 tablespoon freshly grated organic lemon peel

Pour all contents in mason jar and shake vigourosly and allow to infuse for 3 hours or longer.

Spoon out and massage into skin. Rinse or shower off.
