Vintage YoT: Simple Citrus Scrub

Simple Citrus Scrub - Yesterday on Tuesday #scrub #citrusscrub

 I hope you are all having a relaxing last few days of 2012. My family and I went on a little vacation and pretty much the second we arrived at our destination– I got the flu. It's the nasty kind… fevers and chills, full on red nose (hello Rudolph), watery eyes… can't stop sneezin' and wheezin' flu.

I spent the first day inside alone but have been dragging myself out lately, determined not to let the darn flu ruin our family time. What I wish I had on hand right now is some of this Simple Citrus Scrub… and my own bathtub.

  1. oh no Malia, I hope you get better real soon. What a cute scrub.
    I love essential oils. For flu and colds, we call it a magic bath – 2 cups epsom salts, 10 drops eucalyptus oil 5 drops rosemary in warm bath water – soak as long as possible. I wish you could take one right now. My kids love it when they start to feel bad.
    Happy New Year!!!

  2. I LOVE making and using sugar scrubs.. I am really into using my Pumpkin Spice one, right now :) This looks perfect for Spring and Summer. Thanks for sharing, Malia.

    Sweet Malia, I hope you feel better quick! Being sick is no fun. Happy New Year and healthy days ahead!

  4. What a lovely gift idea. The typed labels are super cute too. xoxo

  5. Hope you are feeling better! I can’t live without my saline nasal rinse when I have a cold or flu, it makes sickness so much easier. Best to you!

  6. I bet this smells amazing! I’ve used a similar recipe for making sugar scrub before, but I really love the look of the larger salt crystals in yours – pretty!

  7. So cute! What a fun gift to receive!

  8. I hope you are feeling better by now. I love scented scrubs and a citrus one sounds heavenly!

  9. What a fabulous gift idea! Thanks so much for sharing!
