Add elegance to an ordinary bath for a silky and calming experience. Bath oil not only moistens and softens your skin but also can help with relaxation by relieving tension and relaxing muscles. In addition, essential oils can further play a role in soothing tension both physical and mental.
Be sure not to overdo it with the scent, as warm water increases the intensity of fragrance.
In a glass bottle or jar, add the following:
3 Tbls. Grape Seed Oil
1 Tbls. Jojoba Oil
20 drops essential oil of your choice*
Add 1 Tbls. to bath water. Sit, relax and enjoy!
7 ounces water (distilled is preferred)
1/2 ounce witch hazel
20 to 30 drops essential oil(s) of choice*
1/2 Tbls. Leucidal liquid natural preservative, if desired
Mix all ingredients in glass or plastic spray bottle and shake well. Spray on body and lightly massage into skin.
Natural preservative is highly recommended. Whenever oil is mixed with water, there is a chance of the formula going rancid. Leucidal is all natural and made in the USA. It is derived from radish root.
It is important to take care of our largest organ, our skin. Stretch marks and cellulite are common concerns. Once you understand them, it is easier to tackle them. They appear to be on the top of the skin, however, they are not. This is why topical treatments alone do not work. You need to exfoliate properly to get down to the problem.
Coffee has become popular in skin care for good reason. The caffeine contained in coffee stimulates the blood flow, which in turn promotes healing.
1 cup Coffee Grounds (new or used)
2 Tbls. Sea Salt (texture is your choice)
3 to 4 Tbls. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 to 3 Tbls. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
10 to 15 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil, if desired
Place dry ingredients in a bowl. Lightly melt coconut, ensuring not to overheat. Pour in along with olive oil and stir well. Make sure your scrub has a paste like texture. Transfer into waterproof jar. On clean skin, apply to cellulite and rub in circular motion for 3 to 5 minutes. For best results, leave this application on for 15 to 20 minutes. Gently wipe away with a soft, damp cloth. Apply a natural moisturizer or pure mango butter to the area 2 to 3 times per day.
Please have patience, as this will take some time to notice a change. It is important to continue this process, without missing sessions.
