Hello friends! I hope you have exciting plans for the weekend. I’ll be indoors avoiding the 95 degree weather until the pool is finished being built for the next two weeks. I can hardly believe Mother’s Day is next weekend. How do the holidays keep sneaking on me? I feel like this year is zooming by! Summer break will be here soon and then I’ll be busy keeping three kids entertained for 3 months. I’m already looking forward to our vacation to San Diego and LegoLand, basically the thought of being back in SoCal has me counting down the days. Speaking of summer, sandal season is definitely here in California. Get your toes ready with a foot soak and exfoliate with a sugar scrub like this vanilla rose scrub recipe. It also makes a lovely Mother’s Day gift, especially paired with a spa gift basket.
This scrub can be made with our without rose petals. When using fresh ingredients like the zest of an orange or roses in this case I tend to use the scrub within two weeks. When the scrub is made primarily with essential oils it can last up to 2 months.
