I love making things that are useful and beneficial to health, well-being and vitality. And I love sharing with others. In today's post we take a look at my recipe for a body scrub using natural and organic products to help to gently exfoliate the skin. The body scrub recipe below, is simple and easy to make using natural ingredients and is shared from the level three Aromatherapy course that has been approved by the International Institute for Complementary Therapists and is approved and accepted by the British Holistic Therapy Organisation.
A few words of caution when using exfoliators;
exfoliate once weekly or monthly - determined by your skin type.
apply exfoliation lightly and gently - we are looking to remove dead skin and debris we are no looking to break the skin.
remember to patch test ingredients so that if there is any irritation you can avoid products through adapting the recipe.
Recipe for small quantity is provided but the amounts can be increased through multiplying the weights.
