Hey there, do you guys notice anything different around here. No, it's not my hair. Do you ever get tired of my cheese ball jokes? (It doesn't really matter because they're not going anywhere.) What I'm trying to say is, Sweet Disasters has gotten a bit of an upgrade. I made an investment, if you will. My 85 mm 1.4 came in the mail today. I, almost, cried. I know you're not supposed to love material possessions but I do, I really do. This is the first project I've done with this lens and it already puts all the others to shame. I'm ready to do an entire post about all the different things I can do about it. Allll the different things I learned in the last hour.
Today has been an impulsive day for me. I haaadd to use my new lens for a project. I haaad to shower with this body scrub. I haaaad to put this post first in my queue, even though it will put my future pictures to shame. You've gotta seize the moment, you know? That's what I do.
If you've read this blog before you know I like to make scrubs out of lots of natural things, sugar, sand, spirulina, I can't remember what else, but I know there's more. I have to say salt scrubs are my favorite scrubs. They just are. I don't know what it is. Maybe I've just always had a preference for salt, or maybe it's the whole sea thing. There's just something so earthy about salt. I love it.
- First take your salt in a bowl large enough to mix in, and add in your essential oil.
- Add in apricot oil and grape seed oil and blend until it looks like the texture of a snow cone. You may need more or less oil as you go along. I was surprised by how little oil I needed. Also note, that different oils have different viscosities. So, if you're using olive instead of grape seed oil you may need to use a different amount.
