The Doldrums and Body Scrubs
The dictionary defines the doldrums as "in low spirits, gloomy". Lately I've been in the doldrums and yesterday I decided enough is enough. I cleaned my house then baked cinnamon buns. After that I went to read some blogs and noticed that several people were making body scrubs. I looked up how to make them and found that it sounded quite easy.
The only ingredient I needed to buy was coconut oil. I went to Walmart and bought a 500 ml jar for under $5.
I had enough of the coconut oil to make three different scrubs: a sea salt scrub with lemon, a Chai tea with honey, and a Lemon Mint. I found 4 cute little jars to put the first two kinds in. Still have to get more small jars for the Chai tea one. I may need more for that one because I made sure I used up the remaining coconut oil.
I think these scrubs will make nice token gifts at Christmas, don't you?
By the way, these photos are off the internet. My pics were not nearly as cute.
So my question to you is this: Do you get the Doldrums from time to time? If you do, how do you get out of them? Do you have a strategy ?
Have you tried to make body scrubs or anything along that line?
Thanks for visiting,
