“It’s easy to create a pampering body scrub,” according to Anne-Marie Faiola, DIY beauty expert of Bramble Berry, a beauty supplier. The ingredients you need are right in your kitchen. This weekly scrub will shed scaly skin and promote healthy glow.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
10 drops essential oil
Combine ingredients and gently rub over your body. Concentrate on areas prone to dry, rough patches, like elbows, knees and heels. Rinse off and pat dry.

I’m in Seattle today, running from meeting to meeting (and writing this on the fly in a Starbucks across the street from my next meeting). I haven’t been able to give the next “Kickstart Your Business in 2009” post enough editing to make it valuable for you so look for that lesson tomorrow after I’m happily back in Bellingham. As for today, I’ve been learning a lot: I met with an angel investment strategist to get the skinny on raising money in 2009, gave a presentation to the Women’s Professional Organization about utilizing social media in business and now am getting ready to meet with my unofficial boad of directors about an energizing new soapy business idea I have for Bramble Berry. Their feedback will be helpful in moving forward.
I’ll “talk” to you all tomorrow. Happy Soaping!
