Coming through Covid-19 has been game changing for us all, and finding ways to feel positive energy and our power source can be a struggle. We could all use a reboot or something to make us feel special, valued, happy, and mostly proud of who we are. Self care is about giving the best of you and not what is rest of you. Give yourself the same care and attention that you give to others and watch yourself bloom!
Treating yourself doesn’t have to take a toll on your wallet either. It is about making the time for the little things in life that bring you joy or a small change in your routine to allow yourself more peace of mind! A change in plans could mean a change in you.
Below we’ve shared some cost effective DO IT YOURSELF recipes for you to try! Take some time this week- if even for a few minutes- to gift self care.
Homemade Coconut Cinnamon Foot Scrub:
- Coconut oil – 1/4 cup
- Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
- Sugar – 1 cup
- Essential oil – 1 tsp (optional)
Mix all the ingredients into a bowl and transfer it into a clean glass jar or any container with a lid.
Set it aside until prepared to use.
Lemon and Salt Blackhead Scrub:
- Lemon Juice – 1 tbsp
- Table Salt – 1 tsp
Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice into small bowl. Add table salt. Rub the mixture carefully on your nose and chin and wherever else you find blackheads. Wash the mixture away with warm water.
Strawberry Vanilla Lip Scrub:
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 small mashed strawberry
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- A few drops of natural vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients together in your favourite sanitized container. Apply to lips and exfoliate using circular motions with either your finger or a toothbrush.
Remember, an empty tank will take you nowhere. You have to allow yourself time to refuel.
