Oatmeal Sugar Body Scrub

Oatmeal Sugar Body Scrub leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. This scrub is natural, simple to make and cost-effective. I already had the ingredients in my kitchen and was able to waste no time to make it. Oatmeal is a mild cleanser, exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, and moisturizes. I used organic brown sugar crystals for a good scrubbing and 100% whole grain rolled oats, both from Trader Joe’s. We know coconut oil and it’s deep moisturizing benefits and honey is an anti-bacterial and brings suppleness. The food processor I used to grind the oatmeal into flour was NutriBullet and I was amazed how fast and refined it turned the oatmeal. You can use any food processor or blender that will easily refine the oats.

Turmeric Almond Milk Beverage

By far, this turmeric almond milk beverage is my favorite nightcap drink to make. Not only is it delicious, it’s packed with a variety of health benefits. This treat is one that I’ve made multiple times a week to take advantage of the nutrients it provides such as it’s vitamins and most importantly, it’s anti-inflammatory ability. Turmeric is also good for coughs, colds, and sore throats. Although I don’t suffer from insomnia, it’s perfect for those who can’t get the sandman to show up for a visit. The additional ingredients in this turmeric drink includes: cinnamon, which is loaded with powerful antioxidants that have potent anti-inflammatory activity, ginger which has a long history of relieving digestive problems, nausea, pain reduction, inflammation, and honey for a hint of sweetness.
