  1. SO AWESOME!!! I love this!

    I love peppermint and lavendar mixed. It’s got a very calming effect on me and my migraines. I didn’t know making a body scrub was so easy! But I should have known, seeing as I make my own bath soaking salts and those are really easy too! I have everything I need to make this..I should do it this week!

    I’m not sure if Vanilla is an essential oil but its my favorite scent so I’d try to make that kind! 🙂
