Let’s face it, life is hard! Every day we wake up ready to face the day with our positive affirmations and motivation but as the day moves on we slowly fade away. The positive mindset can deteriorate as you experience negativity, stress, and things not going the way you’d planned.
Running a business, dealing with family, trying to get everything done that seems to be a priority each day leaves us depleted.
It’s no wonder more and more people are suffering from anxiety and depression.
Life is hard.
Here’s the thing, I grew up in a different generation or perhaps with a different lifestyle. I had some awesomely supportive people around me who, with the art of tough love, taught me to be stronger than that.
It’s not a pride or ego thing, it’s called I was raised to rise above my problems and find the strength to get through. With that being said, as I’ve continued in the path of raising three kids I’ve also learned the hard lesson that you can’t help your kids if you’re not at 100%.
That’s why I wanted to share a way for you to enjoy spa relaxation at home. This sugar scrub may be used as a scrub for tough, dry skin while you’re soaking in your evening bath or in the shower to help alleviate itchy, dry skin.
I hope that you enjoy my DIY body scrub homemade with essential oils featured here today. It won’t solve all your problems, but the lavender essential oil will help relax your mind and body so that you can sleep easier and wake up feeling refreshed.
