My name is actually Karissa, Kai is my nickname—I put the two together because Karissa Marie was taken. :) This is going to be a personal/inspiration blog—somewhat of a replacement from my other tumblr (nycdaydreams) with more of my own writing. I’m easily inspired by things I see and read online, so I’m not against reblogging at all.
So I thought I’d write about something I tried yesterday for the first time…I made my own lavender sugar scrub for the first time—amazing! I cleaned out two empty jars of sundried tomato pesto from Giada DeLaurentiis’ line in Target (yummy btw) and filled it up with this mixture:
1 1/2 cups sugar (plain white granulated sugar)
1/4 cup + 1 tbs jojoba oil
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
Mix everything together well, and use as a relaxing/moisturizing exfoliant in the bath or shower. Skin felt AMAZING after using this, literally has never felt softer and I’ve used a lot of products that promise the best feeling skin afterwards and they usually never deliver. Going to be making a lot more of this and probably gifting it to people I know. :)
If you don’t have the fancy oils, you can definitely use olive oil which is great for the skin….and if you don’t have lavender oil, I think you could probably put some lemon juice in this instead.
