I think I am really excited because I will be putting it into a wine bottle and I think it looks so beautiful having a wine bottle on my kitchen sink. I will post pics when it is all set up tomorrow. I also needed something to put the vinegar incase I have to wash anything particularly greasy and I didn't want to pull out the jug every time I needed it.
In enters old Method handwash bottle. I cleaned up and out and VOILA!! Instant access to vinegar in just the right amount when I need it.
Now. For my other project. "Breakfast for Your Skin". This is an amazing body scrub. It is easy to make, you have the ingredients in your house and it makes your skin so deliciously soft and supple.
Exfoliates and is very moisturizing but doesn't leave a greasy feeling. Before you turn off your shower scoop a small handful of scrub into your hand. Rub gently onto your skin. Rinse.
3/4 cup Brown Sugar *I prefer organic*
1/2 cup ground oatmeal (not instant) *I use Irish Oatmeal*
1/4 cup pure honey *I use a local honey for everything*
3/4 to 1 cup (or to total saturation) Oil of choice *I use olive oil or whatever I have in the house*
I grind up the oatmeal in a food processor until it is not quite a fine powder but 1/2 and 1/2.
Then you add your brown sugar. *TIP* If your brown sugar is hard, heat it up in the microwave for 1 minute. Also, sugar never goes bad so don't toss it!!
I mix the brown sugar and oatmeal together in the processor. I put the mixture into a glass bowl. Then I add the honey and mix well. Then I add the oil. I make sure it is all saturated. Your oil will stay mostly on top and that is what you want. Just make sure the brown sugar and oatmeal is very well coated and mixed.
Then spoon into your glass containers. I got these lovelies at a baby shower and they work perfect. I believe you can find something similar at your local dollar store.
