Coffee Scrub Benefits

Coffee scrubs are great to use in the morning! They can be used from head to toe! It’s a great facial scrub! Not only for coffee lovers do you get that nice coffee aroma to help you wake up in the shower, but you get all the added benefits it brings! Coffee when used as a scrub regularly helps to reduce the site of cellulite. Coffee grounds when used as a topical exfoliate helps to increase blood flow to the skin. When used as a scrub it not only removes dirt and dry skin cells, but it leaves the new softer skin and healthy cells behind. All you need is a small amount of your coffee scrub mixture to your hand or wash cloth and gently rub all over skin adding more as needed to reach all desired areas and rinse with warm water, leaving behind soft supple skin! You don’t want your water too hot as it removes the natural body oils also on the skin and can dry your skin. Here’s a link below to our peppermint coffee scrub below! It’s vegan and all natural! It has the wonderful duo smell of peppermint and coffee! A great way to start your day!

Did you know natural body butters are great for Eczema?

Those annoying dry skin patches and itchiness can be a nuisance to those who suffer with Eczema. Cocoa and Shea butter based body butters can help soothe these symptoms! These butters are rich in Vitamin E, A, and F which is great in aiding to help heal the skin and keeping it healthy and supple. Shea butter also contains cinnamic acid which helps protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Also helps to fade dark spots associated with scars left from eczema. If you are sensitive to fragranced butters, a fragrance free body butter is the answer!

Summer Pampering Party Ideas!

Want to have a fun and relaxing day with a few friends? If yes, have a spa party. You can plan a relaxing spa party on a budget. All you need is about 5 to 7 good friends, food, some easy to find pampering items, relaxation music, a few candles and you are all set!

To begin, invite 5 or more friends to your pampering party, not too many as it won’t be relaxing anymore. But seriously, with smaller groups you won’t need as much supplies to prepare, not as much chatter, and it is more relaxing. Next, have each friend bring a healthy snack/foods to munch on. Nothing like food and good conversation with friends.

Here are some food suggestions:

Fruit Bowl– Add some strawberries, blueberries, fresh pineapples, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, kiwi, grapes, and mandarin orange slices. You can also prepare a simple fruit dip for dipping.

Salads– Healthy toss salad with a few vinegarette dressing options or whatever you like. Also, Chicken or tuna salad with mini croisssants or both, pasta salad is always good with diced veggies.

Assorted Cheese and Cracker tray- Yummy Cheddar cheese, Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, Swiss, and Colby to name a few. You can choose an assortment of your favorite crackers or pita chips.

Beverages: Detox waters with Cucumber, mint, & lemon in a glass or plastic beverage dispenser. Other varieties such as Orange and Kiwi, Raspberry & Mint, Blueberry and Lime, Strawberry & lemon. Also, you can have assorted herbal teas, Mimosa, or whatever you like!

Pampering Supplies:

Each person will need a foot tub or foot spa, a hand towel, wash cloth. If your guest brings a foot spa, just make sure you have an area with ample electrical outlets to plug them in. Other items would include a bag of Herbal Body Blessings’ Herbal Foot Soak or whatever foot soaking product you prefer to relax your feet in. Also facial mask product of your choice enough for your guests or they can bring their own to share. Or you can make your own…recipe shown below. Or you can have your guests use a facial steam bag. Herbal Body Blessings’ Lavender & Lemongrass or our Eucalyptus and Spearmint facial teas are easy to use. Use your favorite foot or body scrub, to help remove dry skin from your feet during soaking. Have extra towels handy just in case water spills. You can also let your guests use the scrubs for their hands to exfoliate and soften them as well. One jar should be plenty to share with your guests. Foot brush or pumice stone (optional.) Also, your favorite body butter to moisturize your feet after soaking. Assorted Nail polish & polish remover for fingers and toes. You can find cheap toe separators, cotton balls etc., at your local dollar tree, Walmart, Target, or pharmacy.

Spring Is In The Air!

Spring is one of my favorite seasons! The temperatures are usually just right! The insects aren’t too bad, which makes it comfortable to be outdoors! When the sun is shining, its a great time to go out and soak up some Vitamin D. When it’s raining, I still love it, because I know my flowers will be beautiful and bountiful once they bloom! In the spring, I tend to plan what flowers and herbs I will grow this spring/summer months. I love color, so in the spring my I enjoy Irises, Tulips, Azaleas, and Daffodils! In the summer months, I love roses, Lilies, Marigolds, Zinnias, Black Eyed Susan, Petunias, and Peonies. Some of the herbs I tend to grow are Mint, Lemon Balm, Cilantro, and occasionally Rosemary.

Some of the activities that are fun to enjoy in the spring are long walks in the park, biking riding, garden shows, impromptu visits to the ice cream shop, outdoor seating at restaurants when available and so much more. I love grilling and eating out on the deck at home, with an occasional glass of wine, playing card games, and laughing with friends & family. Sometimes, I just enjoy sitting out and reading a good book or browsing through a magazine. I love it out there even more once the flowers start to bloom, it’s so pretty and relaxing. If the temperature is right, we tend to be out there until way after it’s dark and then we can light up our outdoor umbrella lights and candles. I am getting excited just thinking about it all. What do you enjoy about spring?
