Tara’s Clarifying Salt Scrub

One of the easiest products to make in the kitchen, yet one of the most commonly bought off the shelves of pharmacies and beauty retailers (at a great expense) are salt or sugar scrubs.

I adore the feeling of silky-soft skin, unblocked pores and a good exfoliation, and a salt-based scrub is by far your best option to help clarify and tone your skin.

This delicious jar full is suitable for body, hands, feet and face.

15 drops of lavender

4 drops cedarwood

Holiday Travel –Don’t forget to pack your “Essential” Oils

Plan ahead and prepare your small travel bottles of “must have” travel oils before heading out on your next adventure.

RELAX Are you a person who stresses when flying? Be sure to keep a small vial of Neroli oil handy. Apply a few drops to your palms and inhale deeply for a few breaths to calm the nerves you feel during takeoff. If you’re not traveling, give yourself permission to relax amongst the holiday parties, shopping, baking, and entertaining. Take a breather, a few moments of quiet and inhaling the scent of Neroli will restore your inner calm.

 

ENERGIZE Jet-lag from long distance air travel or just plain lack of sleep can turn you into a Grinch. Greet the day with our Energize Essential Oil blend, helping you wake up and move! Spray in the shower just before stepping in or add to a warm wet washcloth and breathe in for an instant pick me up!

 

REST Even if you’re staying closer to home this season, you might find that changes in routine disrupt your sleep patterns. Lavender has been found to help you fall asleep, sleep longer and have a more restful sleep. Rub on your temples or wrists (or anywhere) for an immediate calming effect on the body.
