DIY Spa Treatment: Thanksgiving-Inspired Body Scrub

You've gone out and bought all of these fresh ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner, but you've still got some leftovers lying around. Instead of watching them go bad or killing yourself trying to concoct a makeshift meal with minimal groceries, indulge your body and pamper your senses with this fresh and yummy Thanksgiving-inspired body scrub. It's really easy to make — and now your insides and your outsides can savor the goodness of comfort food! Here's what to do:

  • In a medium-sized saucepan, mix together and heat 2 oz. of apricot-kernel oil, 1 oz. of sunflower oil, and 1 oz. of jojoba oil.
  • Next, turn off the heat but add in 1oz. of cornmeal, one teaspoon of sugar, one tbsp. of ground pecans, and six drops of lavender oil. Stir.
  • When everything is cool enough for your skin, stand on a large towel (this could get messy) and gently rub the mixture onto your body in circular motions. Don't forget about your toes, your neck, and your knees — but you will want to avoid your face.
  • Rinse off in a warm shower and don't use any soap. Allow the oils to moisturize your skin. When you are about to get out of the shower, give your body a cool rinse and then gently pat your body dry.

I think it sounds fantastic. I'm all for putting scrubs on my skin that smell good enough to eat!

This sounds like it would smell great, but I have acne-prone skin on my back and shoulders. I probably wouldn't put anything with oil or sugar on the skin there. Also...I don't have any apricot-kernel, lavender, jojoba oil lying around, leftover from my Thanksgiving dinner!
