Before I get into my post, I would like for you to notice a few things about this video. 1) They are not really playing their instruments. B) The guitar player sitting down looks a bit like Mick Jagger. C) The keyboard player looks similar to Freddie Mercury. 4) That dark-haired dude with the glasses looks amazingly like the dorky guy on Spin City -- Richard Kind....and F) Some of these guys are barefoot...I suppose some sort of 60s protest/hippie/free love stuff. Just a few side notes. :-) Another one of my bizarre two-fers..well, really a three-fer. You are getting a video, some pointed information AND a recipe!
We have been on an almost 2 week jaunt to the New England area. This trip was for a business meeting, but we decided to include some personal sightseeing while we were in the area. After all, we just can't run up to Maine any ol' time we feel like it! It's a bit of a drive from Nashville, TN. :-)
Needless to say, we are exhausted. Our trip took us to Newport, RI, Salem, MA, Boothbay Harbor, ME and Gettysburg, PA. Those were the business meeting and sightseeing stops. There were overnight stays in Virginia and Vermont as well. This post is not about the trip. I will write more on that later. This post is about coming home.
We arrived home at 2:00 a.m. on Thursday. Gettysburg, PA had been our last stop and we didn't leave there until around 1:00 p.m. It was a very, very long drive. But we were anxious to get home. You know how it is after a long trip. You are ready to be refreshed and relaxed and in your own bed.
Since my skin was feeling a bit icky after being in so many different hotels with so many different water softeners, I wanted and needed an invigorating exfoliation. I fired up the computer and went straight to Pinterest. Yes, I know it was amazing that I had any brain cells left to do so, but determination spurred me on.
Since I needed a boost, I wanted something with a little pep. Cha-Ching! Found one!
I whipped this scrub together (AND took photos...you should be impressed)!! :-) I then treated myself to little bit of wonderful! It was easy to make, smells fabulous and looks good enough to eat!
PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of coconut oil
4-6 drops of peppermint essential oil
4 drops of red food coloring
Melt coconut oil in microwave safe dish for 30 seconds or until liquid. Mix in essential oil. Combine with sugar in a mixing bowl, until sugar is completely mixed with oils. Divide scrub in half. Mix one half with red food coloring and stir well. Fill jar with red mixture and white mixture as you desire. Store in airtight container.
I hope you enjoy this invigorating body scrub. I know I did and I think you will also! Guess you noticed there was no incense involved....I just like the song and wanted to share it with you! LOL
