I bought a sample of this perfume last year on a whim, simply because I loved the name. It took me a little while to get used to it, but now I feel naked without it. And I adore the story behind it. It got me thinking about ancient ingredients and I started thinking about how ancient Egyptians used honey back in the day and then I thought I should try to whip my own bath product up using honey. So, here is something I threw together this morning, and let me tell you, it’s pretty amazing.
Honey Sugar Scrub
1/2 a cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract (totally optional but it made the scrub smell really yummy).
Mix it all together in a bowl and scrub yourself down with it in the shower or bath. The sugar scrubs off all the dead skin and the oil leaves you soft and smooth. I used it this morning and my skin feels incredible! Perfect wintertime pick-me-up.
