Another reason to love Enjoy!

Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub
A sweet smelling body scrub which will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.

1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
1/2 cup + 3 TBSP organic Sunflower oil
1/2 tsp organic Vanilla flavoring extract

Blend sugars together in a bowl, add oil and vanilla extract, and mix well.
Package in jars, and enjoy!

Lover's Delight Massage Oil
A floral, earthen, exotic, and sweet blend,
which will appeal to women and men alike.

1/2 cup organic Jojoba oil
20 drops organic Lavender essential oil
15 drops organic Cedarwood essential oil
2 drop organic Ylang Ylang essential oil

Drop all essential oils into a glass bottle, add Jojoba oil, and roll bottle between palms to blend oils. Decorate with a ribbon and pretty label if desired. Shake well before each use.

Rose & Geranium Bath Bombs
Enjoy taking a bath with these fun and fizzy aromatic bath bombs.

1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Epsom Salt
1 TBSP organic Rose Hydrosol or water
1 tsp organic Olive oil
Dried organic Rose petals
20 drops organic Geranium essential oil

Combine dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in Olive Oil and essential oil while stirring to prevent fizzing. Slowly spritz with hydrosol while stirring constantly until the mixture begins to clump together. The blend should be just moist enough to hold when pressed together with your hands, be careful not to add too much moisture. Add rose petals, press into molds, and allow to dry 2-3 hours before un-molding. Let bath bombs cure for one week before using them, then store in an airtight container. You can shape your bath bombs by using a melon baller, ice, candy or soap molds, clear plastic two-sided Christmas ornaments, egg cartons, or anything else you have on hand.

Sweet Lavender Bath Salts
Floral and relaxing, these salts are a perfect addition to any bath.
1 cup Salt (Epsom, Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, or a mixture)
1/4 cup Baking Soda
20 drops organic Lavender essential oil
1 TBSP organic Lavender flowers

Mix salt and baking soda together in a large bowl.
Add essential oil and Lavender flowers, blend well.
Package in a jar, or use right away.
