Scented Spa Treats for Beauty/Wellness

Scented Spa Treats for Beauty/Wellness
When you think spa, typically it's all about going outside of your home. What if you could bring the elements of scented spa into your own bathroom, be it large or small? Yes, creating a haven that's all about your beauty and well being.

You've all heard and read about sugar and salt scrubs and how great they are for your body. Massage and body oils that relieve tension and help you relax. I'll share a couple of recipes for you to try and you tell us how well they worked for you.

We all know that lavender is known for its healing and relaxing properties. In the recipe I'm about to share, it has been paired with honey for soft subtle skin.

Lavender Honey Scrub

1/2 cup of organic sunflower seed oil
2 tablespoons raw organic honey
1 cup organic cane sugar
24 drops Lavender essential oil
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers

In a large bowl combine the sunflower oil and raw organic honey. Slowly add the organic cane sugar and mix well. Fold in the 24 drops of Lavender oil and vanilla extract. You'll be adding the dried lavender flowers for color.

This is a body exfoliant and can be used up to twice a week in the shower or tub. When used before bedtime it's great for a nice relaxing night of sleep.

While massage oils are made for certain treatments, you can also use the concept as a body oil. Here's a recipe if you need to relieve tension from stress and anxiety.

Body/Massage Oil

2 ounces of organic almond or jojoba oil
18 drops of sweet marjoram essential oil
6 drops of ginger essential oil

Add the essential oils to a glass container, preferably one that has a flip or spray top. Then pour the organic almond oil or jojoba oil on top of them in the container. Turn upside down to blend together several times. The longer the blend sits, the better the combination will age and create synergies with each other.

You can change the combination of essential oil blends to fit your mood or whatever the challenge you are providing a solution too.
