Whenever we visit London, we make sure to spend some time at Covent Garden (yes, of Elizabeth Doolittle fame). I love the old structure where the vendors gather, and while I know it's changed a great deal since its original days, I always enjoy strolling around the shops and cafes soaking up the energy.
One shop that Miranda and I always go into is LUSH, which you can now find in NYC and other large cities. As soon as you walk in, you're bathed in fragrances from all the wonderful lotions, bath bombs, and salt rubs. We've splurged on occasion, but I was recently inspired to make my own salt rub which is super easy to do. Here's a simple recipe that you can customize.
Add 10 drops of high-quality essential oil. I love lavendar for relaxation but lemongrass is great if you want a rub that is refreshing.
There you have it: a great exfoliant for hands and feet that will leave your skin feeling smooth and smelling delightful.
Keep your salt rub in a well-sealed container and avoid using it on your face -- the salt will sting and I don't want to make you cry! Which fragrance will you use? Enjoy.
