I love Pinterest. I have THOUSANDS of pins. Things I will never have. Places I will never go. Houses I will never live in. But I LOVE looking at Pinterest.
And when I see pins I always wonder "does that really work?"
Well last week I saw THIS pin. It's a "recipe" for a Rosemary Mint Sugar Salt Scrub. Go ahead, click on the link!!!
I am always looking for cute gift ideas. And one of the ladies I work with just happened to have brought in a huge bunch of fresh rosemary from her house.
So, I gave it a whirl. And let me tell you it SMELLS AND FEELS AMAZING!!
I actually made two batches and gave each of the ladies I work with some of the scrub. Everyone raved over it.
When I make it again, I will use olive oil instead of grapeseed oil. The grapeseed oil was VERY EXPENSIVE.
Also, I didn't put it in glass containers. While they are much "cuter" than the plastic containers I used, the thought of slippery wet hands and a glass jar just made me a little bit nervous. So I put the scrub in little plastic containers with lids.
What Pinterest projects have worked for you? Any Pinterest "fails?"
