April is here!!! Yay!… and spring is definitely in the air. I’m feeling a bit frisky this morning after using one of my homemade morning body polishes and just wanted to share with you a couple great recipes for making your own. They are really quite simple to make (even a novice can do it!).

There’s nothing like waking up to the scent of citrus oils…they are so energizing, fresh, and perky, you just can’t help but smile when you inhale their burst of sunshine. I have so many favorite essential oils, but I really couldn’t live without my citrus oils, they truly are my sunshine in a bottle!

If you love citrus oils as much as I do, here are a few body scrub and citrus blend recipes that you can use, or alter depending on your tastes:

Consider these skin workouts, increasing circulation, getting rid of dead skin cells, and aromatherapy treatments all in one!
