 i think we did pretty ok getting that all in there.

we be scrubbin’

i bet you were wondering what i did with the foraged mint we found this weekend. or maybe you weren’t. probably not. b/c you’re normal and you aren’t interested in every little thing i do or say or think. why are you even reading this? ha ha ha ho ho ho he he he. hum. sorry.

i decided to make a sugar scrub with our mint, which turned out to be spearmint. it was so simple and quick that i’m officially never going to buy a sugar or salt scrub again.

I used the above pictured safflower oil b/c it is “high in antioxidant vitamin e” which has natural preservative qualities. then it was simply a matter of measuring out sugar, oil, and crushing the spearmint before mixing. i didn’t even mess with measuring cups, just eyeballed it. also, i of course gave the mint a thorough washing to make sure “deer dew” wasn’t a secret ingredient.

the end result was a scrub that smelled so scrumptious i wanted to stick my hands in my mouth and chew on them for hours to freshen my breath.
