    We did foot scrubs on our vacation with extended family. Some of the hubbies were gracious enough to give their wives foot treatments using the fresh scrubs! These are so fun for a girls night/day “in”…gather the ingredients, get a couple of fragrances to choose from and your guests can whip up their own sugar scrub, enjoy some special drinks and great company all in the comfort of home.
