* For the first DIY scrub, just take half a cup of brown sugar, one cup of oats, half a cup of olive oil, and a bit of your favourite essential oil. Mix them all together so that it becomes a thick paste which you can then transfer to a bowl as you walk into the shower. Once you are done showering, just apply the paste all over the body and massage for a good 10 minutes so you can feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Then wash yourself once more, and step out feeling rejuvenated. You don’t have to necessarily use the entire scrub, and if some of it is left, you can store it in a cool place and use it for the next at-home spa session.
