Many of us find our typical means of self care (say, time spent relaxing outdoors?) disrupted by hostile natural conditions, sunlight is limited, and every social encounter is potentially contagious – but you don't have to go down like that. If you haven't already, start fortifying yourself for a happy, healthy winter season! Here at your Co-op, we have everything to empower you, and knowledgeable staff to help you too!"

DIY Sugar & Coffee Body Scrub
Put your brewed coffee grounds to work!
"Food-grade, biodegradable ingredients like sugar, salt, or coffee grounds will exfoliate the skin, removing dry, dead, and dull-looking skin cells and helping to prevent clogged pores. Incredibly, your skin will respond by generating new, fresh skin cells more quickly. Isn’t Mother Nature wonderful?"
