We love spring time at Lively Living. It’s a season people traditionally embrace for personal renewal and growth. When it’s time to ‘spring clean’ mind, body, and soul, essential oils are nature’s secret weapon…especially when it comes to clear, radiant skin.
Get your glow on naturally with a 100% natural body scrub
Just as we look after internal organs with cleansing, detoxing, whole foods, and plenty of sleep, we also need to share the love with our skin. Did you know your skin is actually your body’s largest organ?
If your skin is suffering from the drying effects of winter, a body scrub is a great way to slough away dead skin cells, and reveal the fresh cells beneath. Scrubs are widely regarded in the beauty and natural therapy industries for their exfoliating and stimulating properties. When used on the skin in a scrubbing motion, circulation is increased which helps cleanse and invigorate skin across every area of the body.
When you infuse your body scrub with Lively Living pure essential oils, you’re reaping the additional benefits of aromatherapy. Customise your scrub to your favourite blend for an emotional or physiological boost…and get your glow on naturally.
Our home made body scrubs are a lot of fun to make and use, so what are you waiting for? Grab your essential oil kit, grab your girlfriends, and recreate a day spa experience in your very own home!
Lively Living’s 100% Natural DIY Body Scrub
You don’t need to spend a lot of money, or invest a huge amount of time to create your own range of body scrubs. Our base scrub uses inexpensive natural sea salt which works really well to buff and polish skin.
With no chemicals, preservatives, or additives, this 100% natural scrub ticks all the boxes when it comes to looking after yourself, and the environment.
You will need:
- 1 cup of coarse sea salt
- ½ cup Lively Living Fractionated Coconut Massage & Carrier Oil
- 5 – 7 drops of your favourite Lively Living Essential Oil – Lemon, Orange, or Peppermint are wonderfully zesty and refreshing, or try Lavender for a more calming aroma.
- A 300ml glass jar with lid
Simply add the salt to your glass jar, then pour over the fractionated coconut oil. Add your drops of essential oil, use a fork to stir well … and you’re ready to go!
Apply the scrub to your skin, and rub in a circular motion for a couple of minutes, then rinse clean for soft, smooth skin. While some people like to use a scrub on their face, legs, or arms, it can be used just as effectively to refresh tired hands and feet. The coarse size and texture of salt transforms perfectly into one of nature’s finest exfoliators, while the addition of essential oil unleashes a beautifully fragrant aroma and health-promoting properties.
Perhaps spring has awakened a new era of self-care in you? Maybe you’re looking for a natural change to your current skincare routine? Or perhaps you’re embracing some much-needed ‘me time’, or a way to reconnect with fun and friends? Whatever the reason, now is the perfect time to prep your skin for summer with our Lively Living DIY Body Scrub.
