Mama's in the Kitchen

Hard to believe it's finally here, but the first day of spring is this coming Sunday. Which means...sandal season is right around the corner! I don't know about you, but after this winter, my tootsies are not fit for public display. Now I could book a pedicure appointment, but being the frugal (-cheap) girl that I am, I'm making my own mani/pedi scrub. It's exfoliating and moisturizing, and super easy to make yourself. It's a great gift for moms, girlfriends, even for guys-but then you should probably call it 'big man scrub'-or something like that.

Mani/Pedi Scrub:
1 cup olive oil (I buy el cheapo)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup kosher salt
Stir until blended together,then add
a few drops of essential oil (longest lasting), or the zest
of a piece of citrus+ a few drops of extract
(for instance orange zest+ orange extract)
Makes about 2 cups
