Soothe Your Spirit and Winter Skin

Beatrice Galgano has a dream-like lavender farm in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Her company, Podere Argo, produces several different products harvested from her farm, including some from honey. One of those products is her signature lavender essential oil. I saw her use it recently in a YouTube tutorial for homemade lavender scrub. It seemed a perfect remedy for tired, winter skin and rejuvenating for post-holiday stress. I asked if she would be kind enough to translate her recipe for my Ms. Guided readers and she graciously agreed! Follow the recipe below and for fun, check out her video and follow along in la bellissima lingua italiana.


Lavender Sugar Scrub


Sugar, 6 table spoons
