Visiting Page, Arizona

Postcard from Page

I had the opportunity to visit Page, Arizona last week. There are several beautiful sites within a few hours drive, such as the Grand Canyon, Monument valley, Rainbow Bridge and Bryce Canyon. I saw none of those. There were plenty of things to do and see within 15 minutes of my motel. Limiting drive time was an important part of my vacation plan. It takes me 45 minutes to get to work–60 minutes if a duck farts the wrong way on the turnpike. So, I was not looking to drive much. I could have stayed another week and not have gotten to it all (boat and helicopter tours, skydiving, hikes, etc). If you are looking for vacation ideas, this place should go on the list. (I received no compensation for these reviews) Continue reading

Katie’s Kitchen: Foot and Facial Scrub

Scrub

 

No cooking needed!  My latest kitchen adventure ended in the bathroom.  Wait, that does not sound right….

I made scrubs for my feet and my face.  Each scrub has a sugar, a base oil for moisture, and a several drops of each essential oil used.

For the face:

Grapeseed Oil

Date Sugar (it has a fine grain)

Lavender Oil

Tea Tree Oil 

For the Feet:

Almond Oil

Turbinado Sugar (coarse grains)

Lavender Oil

Tea Tree Oil

Eucalyptus Oil

I need to put some more base oil in both mixes to get it the way I want, but they are really nice.

I wash my face as usual after the facial scrub (1-2x/week) but just a good rinse and my special, fuzzy nighttime time socks for my feet.

It does make a bit of a mess.  I therefore, have relegated the foot scrub to the tub and the facial to the shower.

Have you ever “cooked” your cosmetics or soap?
