Today I come bearing free gifts for a spa experience at home!
Last night I was inspired by both The Broke Socialite @BrokeSocialite and the  @TheGreatDanaJ last night to share more of these economical essential experiences for both the body and mind!  So today I will let you in on an easy way to enjoy the Spa Life at Home!
Soapbox Moment Please…
It seems like everyone not only Clark Howard is talking about how to save money these days.  This includes many of  my friends in circles that have never even mentioned  expenses, money, cost or budget nuances.  Well this tough economy has us all thinking of ways to save money.
That is one of the reasons I started this blog.  We won’t talk about how much I used to spend on these items!
Everyone now wants to save, cut costs or reduce expenses even if  just to maintain their lifestyle. But no one wants to remain stagnant in their life really do they?  
So, if you are a spa type gal or not you should still try something new today.  If you have never visited a spa just see if you like the experience after trying this at home.
 Even with kids this can be accomplished with a good Disney video and a good bathroom Lock.  Don’t forget your candles!  

This recipe is really easy!

2 cups of coarsely ground coffee
1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil

Mix all ingredients together. Take a hot shower to moisten your skin and open your pores. Using wide, circular motions, rub the coffee  exfoliate onto your skin with strong, even pressure. Shower off, pat skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite scented body lotion.  

Now if you want to get a little more fancy here you go!

Things You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup of Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and blend.
While showering, apply to wet skin and scrub girls!  Start at your feet and work up.  Don’t forget the backs of your arms and elbows!
After cleanse with a mild soap.  Get you a big fluffy towel to dry and follow with your favorite moisturizer.Comment & let me know if you tried it or one of your own recipes!Enjoy!
