The wonderful Anna from The Absolute Beauty has written us a simple do it yourself recipe for an all natural body polish you can make at home!
Just like the skin cells on your face, the cells on your body regularly shed to reveal new, healthier skin underneath. That turnover process slows as we get older and in order to give it a nudge, you can use a body scrub.
A scrub works in a few ways: as you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface.
This is a recipe for an indulgent and revitalising scrub that will nourish and pamper your skin. It will gently exfoliate, cleanse, polish away dead surface cells and leave skin soft and smooth, revealing glowing brand new delicious smelling skin.
For this beautiful polish you will need:
¼ cup Raw Sugar
¾ cup Himalayan Fine Pink Salt
3 tbsp Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
2 tbsp Cocoa Butter
1 tbsp Avocado Oil
5 drops Geranium essential oil
4 drops Palma Rosa essential oil (or Rose essential oil)
4 drops Lavender essential oil
1. Add the Himalayan Salts, sugar and avocado oil together to a bowl and mix well.
2. Melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter in a bain marie for a few minutes and add to the mixture.
3. Add the essential oils and mix gently.
4. Pour the mixture into a glass container that has an airtight lid.
5. Store in a cool, dry place and as it is a preservative free products, avoid getting water into it.
This polish will make a beautiful gift. If making for a gift you can top it off with dried rose petals or lavender flowers for an extra added touch. Enjoy beautiful and glowing skin!
