Prepare for the New Year in Your Home Spa
As the year 2020 draws to an end, it is time to relax and pamper yourself in the comfort of your home. Create your own home spa with homemade coffee scrub and enjoy a refreshing mocktail after a hot sauna or a shower. Finish the luxurious atmosphere with soft, high-quality towels and scented candles and room diffusers.
New Year’s Wellness Mocktail
1 medium piece of cucumber sliced
10 slices of fresh ginger, about 0,5 cm thick
4 dl agave nectar
5dl still water
soda water for serving (about 1,5 dl per drink)
1-2 cucumber slices for serving, optional
Place sliced cucumber and ginger in a large, heat-proof bowl. Bring agave nectar and water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until nectar is completely dissolved. Pour over cucumber and ginger and let stand for 2 hours.
Strain into a bottle and chill.
To prepare a cocktail, stir together about 1 shot syrup with about 3 shots water, or to taste. Garnish with a cucumber slice.
Coconut and Vanilla Coffee Face Scrub
1 dl fresh ground coffee
1 dl brown sugar
1 dl coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix dry ingredients together and add the oil and vanilla extract. Store in a dry, cool place in an airtight jar for up to two months.
Rub the scrub gently in circular motions all over your face and body, avoiding the eye contour and leave it on for a couple of minutes to allow the coconut oil to moisturize the skin. Rinse thoroughly.
