Morton Salt Girl Is 100 Years Old!

Hey neighbors!

I had the opportunity to work with Morton Salt on their 100 year celebration of the Morton Salt Girl.  We had a girl's night spa party.  You would not believe the fun we had!  Spa time, treats, and a video!

Some Morton Salt facts:
Morton Salt got it's start in Chicago in 1848.  Joe Morton founded Morton Salt and the Morton Arboretum.  1924 is when Morton first marketed Iodized Salt.  The Morton Salt girl first appeared in 1914.  She was not modeled after anyone.  It was said she was America's favorite 8 year old.  The Morton Salt Girl we know today is the 1968 design.

We started our party out with our snacks!  Tater tots with chili and cheese melted over them.  We of course salted them with Morton Salt!  They were super great!  We did have a few unsalted snacks as well!''

While we snacked we chatted and just had some general conversation.  Wouldn't you know it started raining, "When it rains, It pours!"  So, while the thunderstorm raged outside, we proceeded with our Morton Salt spa night.

We made up Morton Epsom Salt foot baths.  We filled some small tubs with warm water and scented Morton Epsom Salts.  Lavender is my favorite!  That felt really good.  Not only did we get to soak our feet, but we also used a foot scrub made with Morton Epsom Salt.  Oh, were our feet soft when we finished.  Of course we finished up with painted toe nails!

Some of us tried the Epsom Salt Facial.  I don't think anyone is allowing us to share those pictures.

Morton Salt sent me a party kit, so there were recipes and coupons to share.  There was a body scrub recipe that one of my daughters tried.  Not at the party of course.  The body scrub actually has coffee in it.  One of my other daughters said she has been looking for a coffee scented wash where the fragrance would last more than a short time.

Oh, we did some hair braiding too!

I am going to share our recipes here.  I did want to say though, I was not aware that Morton made so many salt products.  Not only do they make table salt, but they have Epsom Salt, including scented, then they have pool salt, system salt and salt for melting ice.  Were you aware they did all that?

Paradise Foot Scrub:
1 cup Morton Natural Epsom Salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 lemon juiced

In a bowl mix together all ingredients.  Fill large bowl, basin or tub with warm water (about 6-8 cups).  Soak feet for 10 minutes.  Remove polish, then cut and file nails.  Massage a handful of the Epsom Salt mixture all over feet, paying close attention to the heels and balls of your feet.  Let your feet soak for about 5 minutes more.  Rinse and dry feet.  Your feet should feel soft and moisturized.  You can finish up with your favorite lotion and polish!

Wake Me Up Epsom Salt Body Scrub
The caffeine from the coffee in this scrub will help stimulate and constrict blood vessels for a tighter appearance.

1/2 cup Morton Natural Epsom Salt (Scented or Plain)
1/2 cup coffee grounds
2 tablespoons honey
2-5 drops extra virgin olive oil
5 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

Mix the Morton Epsom Salt with the coffee grounds in a bowl.  Then add honey and oils and stir well until the mixture is paste like.  In the shower wet your body and use a palmful to scrub your body.  This works best if you scrub a few minutes standing away from the water.  Rinse well.  If you have any scrub left - keep it in an air tight container and use again in 3-5 days.

Do any of my readers know the original phrase that was finally shortened to: "When it rains it pours."?  The original ad was, "Even in rainy weather, it flows freely."  Just not quite the same! LOL!

Now, I know it is not much, but I also received Morton Salt coupons for 1 free Morton System Saver II Pellet 40 lb bag and 1 Free Morton Pool Salt 40 lb bag.  I am going to do a giveaway with these.  Winner will receive both coupons.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive product to host a party.  All quotes in red are taken from the sponsor's email or website.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I've never been to a spa, but have given myself spa treatments at home. The last one was for my feet and was about 2-3 weeks ago.

Since I can't remember the last time I had a spa treatment I think it's time for one.
