Adding Essential Oils to your Daily Scrubs to Making your Own Body-wash
Now to make it simpler understand that for any scrub the base is sugar+carrier oil.Sugar acts as the natural exfoliant and the carrier oil moisturises and blends everything together.
The easiest and most economical and also my favourite scrub is the coffee almond scrub
Its rich and nourishing and very easy to prepare.Start off with cleanising the skin with a sugar based scrub which is gentle exfoliating not too abrasive.Mix carrier oil-coconut oil along with a cup of ground coffee,almonds and granulated sugar to form a paste.This is a great way to get rid of cellulite and moisturise your skin naturally without facing any side-effects.
Solution to stubborn tan,dead-skin,black & white heads is the lemon-avocado scrub
Using harsh abrasion like oatmeal can further damage skin cells and lead to patches.Further for removing tan people go though a lot of painful procedures ,simple DIY lemon and avocado based skin scrub can work wonders to get rid of tan.You can also used real avocados instead of using the carrier oil and use a lemon to apply the scrub.
So what you have to do it mix a tbsp sugar with 7-10 drops of lemon essentail oil and half lemon squeezed and a medium sized avocado minced.You can add honey if you want shine.Use the squeezed lemon and rub it gently in circular motions on the skin to apply this pasty mix.
For those with sensitive skin a good scrub that you can use is a rose-sugar scrub
Ground fresh rose petals into a paste like consistency. Mix with sugar,lavender essential oil,almond carrier oil and form a smooth scrub. Further you can add a body wash like olay and you can have a lovely home spa 🙂
Looking for anti-bacterial,anti-fungal solution during the rains? rosemary-sugar scrub
Mix together honey with orange,rosemary essential oils,sugared a cup of granulated sugar till its combined into a fine paste.You can also use grounded rosemary leaves and mix them in for better results.
Face-Lip-care for your daily dose of exfoliation in the dry heat and stubborn winters
For the face you need to be more gentle, a very soothing face scrub is made with strawberry , olive oil,sugar and honey.Massage gently upward in circular motions, then rinse off with cold water.
For soft pink supple lips use cocoa butter with jojoba oil.You will be surprised by the wonders this mix does.Its almost magical 😀

Haven’t you spent enough on hair-spas and massages?let me save you some trips to the salon.
