Living near the lake, we are socked in with so many moisture laden clouds and the sun never seems to shine through. After last summers devastating wildfires, I am thankful for this wet winter and have been making beads inspired by snow, ice and moving water in the creek. Life is good. On days that I need an extra boost, I make this from Farmaesthetics on the Terrain blog:
Pink Salt & Cinnamon Rose Scrub
What You'll Need
4 tablespoons organic unrefined coconut oil (softening, protective & reparative)
4 tablespoons organic avocado oil (or any mild oil, like almond) (emollient, soothing)
1/2 cup finely ground pink Himalayan salts (purifying, re-mineralizing)
2-3 drops cinnamon essential oil (antibacterial)
Organic rose petals (beautifying & skin brightening)
Small glass mixing bowl
Place coconut and avocado oils in mixing bowl, then melt in microwave or on the stove top for approximately 40 seconds, or until just melted. Remove from heat and stir in salt, then add essential oils and stir. Sprinkle in rose petals and stir gently until blended. Place in Weck jar and store in cool, dry place-- better yet in the refrigerator-- until ready to use.
To use: Apply to warm, wet skin in a circular motion, focusing on areas of congestion, stagnation, cellulite, or roughness. The scrub will warm and melt into skin when applied.
