Our Bodies Need Some LOVE!

At times like these we need to take care of our immune system and body too. Since it is summer and we shed our clothes and show more skin we need to also slough off dead skin cells. As well as hydrate the skin on our face and body too. One of my clients shared this recipe with me a long time ago. And I recently discovered it in my pandemic cleaning purge of some paper work etc.

I almost forgot how much I like this recipe alongside eating a bowl of oats or granola with home-made yogurt and fruit in season. To make home-made from scratch yogurt I use Belle + Bella. They have an amazing starter packet and unit to make it. It is fun and when i have leftovers (right) instead of licking the spoon I use the fresh yogurt on my face for a gentle neck and face mask.

What you will need for this hand or body recipe:

1 cup of olive oil

1/2 cup of ground up organic oats

1 tbs. vanilla

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

She stirs  in all ingredients and suggests you take some time in the tub.

Place a handful of the mix onto your body. She recommends paying close attention to rough areas like,elbows,knees, hands and feet. Allow the scrub to rest on your skin. Next she recommends rubbing with warm water and a washcloth or a loofah sponge.

Rinse well.

After you get out of the tub. Dry your skin slightly and while damp apply your favorite hand and body lotion.

Your skin will feel soft and fresh you’ll feel brand new!

 

 

Stir crazy?

If you are feeling a little restless and your skin and pores need some love… try this.

I cut some fresh rosemary (great for your immune system and more) that I grow outside my beauty cottage door. I boiled water let it few minutes and placed that water 💦 in a glass bowl.

Next,I added a few drops of Aura Cacia Lavender essential oil  (So relaxing) to the bowl.

This created a Herbal Facial Steam… I placed a tea towel over my head and allowed the steamy aromatherapy and herb STEAM to reach my face. After a few minutes of this facial sauna…

My stress be gone and my pores said “Yes, Thank You!”

I follow up by rinsing my face and applying a facial toner like Rosewater on a flat cotton round. A dash of moisturizer and you’re good to go.

By the way, I love ❤️ sharing my beauty potions and concoctions with my clients now and again. Sharing is caring. Self care is so important and NOW even more.
