• Sea Salt Body Scrub

    Treat yourself to a simple homemade body scrub!  Great for dry, flaky skin common in the dry cold months.  You can store this in an airtight jar in a non-humid location for at least two weeks.  Tie on a ribbon, add a tiny card and gift it to someone you love!

    Ayurveda Tips:  see below  to individualize this for each dosha.

    Sea Salt Body Scrub: 

    • 2 cups of natural fine grain sea salt
    • 15 drops of Essential Oil
    • In a separate container, carrier oils for your dosha (see below).

    Mix salt and essential oil, place in an airtight jar…let it sit for at least two hours to absorb the scent of the essential oil.  To apply, add 1/4 cup of the salt scrub to a carrier oil until they form a thick paste.  Apply paste over body while in the shower (water off):  long strokes from extremities towards heart with clockwise circular motions over joints and abdomen.  Turn water on and rinse.

     

    Carrier Oils by Dosha:

    • Kapha: sesame or almond
    • Pitta:  coconut, almond or avocado
    • Vata:  all oils are great, especially sesame

    Essential Oils

    • Stimulating:  peppermint, citrus, rosemary, eucalyptus, clove, cinnamon, sage; strong florals such as magnolia or gardenia
    • Calming:  lavender, vanilla; soft florals such as rose, geranium and ylang ylang
