I ran out of my body scrub this morning and was pretty bummed out. There’s not a better feeling than vibrant skin that is free from dead skin living on top of it. YUK! When I scrub the dry skin off of my body, I can literally feel the difference in my health. I can feel my body and mind become revitalized and it heightens my energy level. I ‘feel’ glowing.
Our skin is our largest organ and it is really essential to give it as much love as possible and allow it to do what it is supposed to do. By giving it TLC – and not using toxic chemicals on it (toxic moisturizers, sunscreens, chlorinated tap water, etc) and every other day remove dead skin cells (with a body scrub), this encourages our bodies to ‘breathe’ and function much more optimally – its a natural detox.
Skin gets hit by a lot of external and internal pollutants and still does its best to protect our bodies from germs and harmful elements, it filters good nutrients into our body and tries to keep the bad stuff out, it synthesizes Vitamin D effortlessly (it the only natural source for us), healthy skin helps regulates our body temperature, excretes toxins and keeps us radiant and glowing.
In the winter, because we expose our skin so little, we become much more dry, dehydrated and our skin can become brittle and will crack and chap. I know! It hurts! And yes, this all adds to the aging process.
This little easy trick of scrubbing your body with this super easy body scrub will help you through these 5 loonnnngggg months of cold, wintery living and if you are going away down south, your body will already be primed for the sun exposure.
The added CBD oil (highly recommended option) adds a level of tranquility to my life. I take .5mg dropper (half of a dropper) of CBD oil daily, before I go to be every night and I take the same in the morning. It is my chill factor. Trust me, there is zero THC (trippy component) in this oil and you will only find the calming and anti-inflammatory CBD. Struggling with finding your ZEN in meditation? I guarantee you will find it better with CBD oil. For those of you suffering with insomnia, anxiety, sore joints, and elevated stress, I would give it a try (of course, consult with your naturopath or doctor before you do so).
The added component of geranium oil, takes this all to the next level. It smells like a rose and is simply magical. There is not another essential oil that vibrates higher than this frequency. It works well with hormone balancing and heart-centring. I use geranium oil (a couple of drops diluted in coconut oil or jojoba oil) on my hands and feet to keep them warm. When you breathe this oil in a room through a vaporizer or essential oil diffuser it works like magic in meditation and heart love wellness.
Here is my VERY EASY, all natural Body Scrub. I hope you love it! Let me know what you think….XO
All Natural Body Scrub made with sugar, salt and coconut oil:
“Winter Rose Body Scrub”
3 Tablespoons brown sugar (Wholesome sweeteners)
3 Tablespoons Raw sugar (always use non-refined, vegan and non-bleached)
4 tablespoons sea salt ( I used all natural high elevation Ecuadorian Mountain Salt made by Giddy yoyo)
3 Tablespoons coconut oil (I used Dr Bronner’s)
20 drops Doterra Geranium Oil (smells like rose)
1 dropper of CBD Oil
Mix/stir all ingredients in a mason jar and put lid on top. If you want it more chunky, add a bit more sugar or salt.
I re-use plastic tubs I have saved from other scrubs and recycle their use. I keep my scrub in the shower with a a small wooden spoon to scoop it out onto a wash cloth. I place some on my arm/leg/belly and some on the damp wash cloth and scrub away. Let it sit on your body for a few minutes if you can and then gently rinse off. MAGIC!
