Simple Citrus Scrub

Fall is a time for nesting, getting cozy and taking care of yourself and those you love. One way to treat yourself– or someone you care about– to a little "TLC" is to make a simple scrub. Citrus is fresh and invigorating and somehow reminicent of the holiday season.

    Thank you for being a part of the creative spirit on “A Little Birdie Told Me…” at Rook No. 17!

  16. I can smell it now…and you packaged it so cute!

  17. I can’t wait to try to make this! I’m going to make scrubs for Christmas gifts. How much does one batch yield? WHat is the shelf life? Lastly, is the grape seed oil and orange essential oils easy to find? I know a lot of people use zest but I’d prefer orange essential oil :) Thank you! Terra
