A True Winter Soup

Today it snowed… again. I thought spring had taken hold, but alas, no. Well, maybe! Weather predictions show 70 degree days on our near horizon. So for tonight’s dinner we really ate from our stores.

Wake Up with Spearmint

This scrub will awaken your senses and get you going! It is an antidote for depression and is a beautiful treatment for skin because of its antiseptic and anti-pruritic qualities. It is an anti-inflammatory and can even help your cognitive functions, such as memory and alertness.

Sage Scrub

This scrub is a great clarifying agent. Sage has beautiful antiseptic properties but it is also credited for helping respiratory issues, muscle aches, enhancing mental clarity and even relieving depression. The botanical name comes from the Latin word “salvere,” meaning “to be saved.”

Calendula and Lavender Scrub

Just got done creating some new scrubs. This one has healing and calming qualities because it uses calendula infused into the oil and the fragrance of lavender. Epsom salt also adds calm to the experience.
