Relaxation Body Salt Scrub

There's nothing nicer after a busy week than spending some time in quiet reflection and rest.  I love these words from Isaiah which remind us to take some time away from a hectic pace.  "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength."  [Isaiah 30:15].  With the spinning activities of the holiday season, this is an especially good reminder.

A little recipe to help you soak into some quiet reflection and relaxation can be mixed up quickly at your kitchen sink.  Using the shower gel and lotion from your favorite fragrance combo, create this easy body scrub:

Relaxation Body Salt Scrub

2 cups sea salt
3 Tbsp. sesame oil
2 1/2 Tbsp. favorite bath & shower gel
4 1/2 Tbsp. favorite lotion (in same fragrance as shower gel)

Stir the ingredients together and place in a pretty little dish or jar.  Place by bathtub.  Relax with a bubble bath --- and scrub with these fragrant salts!  There's something about your favorite fragrance that can help sooth frazzled nerves and tired feet and legs.  Enjoy!
