--Sweet n Sour Hand Exfoliator: 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons
apricot oil, juice of 1/2 a lemon or 3 drops lemon essential
oil. Combine ingredients and immediately rub mixture onto hands.
Rinse with warm water and moisturize. Sugar abrasion is an excellent
exfoliator. The apricot oil is a natural lubricant, and the lemon
is a skin rejuvenator.
--Nuts About Me Foot Scrub: 1/2 cup shelled walnuts, 1 tablespoon
olive oil, 1 tablespoon castor oil, 1 teaspoon honey, and 2-3
drops of your favorite essential oil. In a blender, grind walnuts
to coarse powder. Add olive oil, castor oil, honey, and essential
oils to make a thick paste. Rub feet with paste vigorously. Rinse
with warm water. For best results, do this twice a week.
--Bright Shine Body Scrub
Polish: 2 cups coarse
sea salt, 1/4 cup apricot kernel oil, and 4 drops lavender essential
oil. Combine sea salt and oils in a bowl to make a paste. Stand
in bathtub - not under water - and spread mixture starting at
the lower legs in smooth, upward circles on the body. Use firm
gentle consistent pressure. After entire body has been exfoliated
and scrubbed, gently rinse and pat dry.
