We always spend the 4th of July with dear friends in the Napa Valley.
Five fun and festive families.
But the tide is starting to change for our annual reunion.
The oldest child, is about to head off to college
and this may be the last summer we are all together.
I wanted to do a simple, spirited treat for all the moms...
Exfoliating sugar scrubs are so easy to make
and great to slough off all of that dry summer skin.
To add some red and blue pizazz to my regular white scrub,
I used rose and agapanthus petals.
I rolled and ...
then stirred in oil...
and Star Spangled Scrub is ready for the fireworks!
Wishing you a sweet and smooth 4th of July.
