Scrub Away Salt Scrub4th January 2016
I recently landed back from India.
I always struggle with long haul flights and the after effects. One thing I make sure I do now is to try and nourish my body, mind and soul after flying. One of the ways I do this when I reach home, is to make this salt scrub. If like me you struggle with long haul flights and the after effects of travelling, whip up a batch of this scrub!
In a small bowl or glass jar add 3 heaped tablespoons of rock salt and top with 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil. Add 5 drops of essential oil ( I love lavender and ylang ylang especially after a flight!) and mix well.
In the shower or bath, take a small amount in the palms of your hands and rub together. Take a moment to breathe in the smell and gently scrub the body. Pay extra attention to hands and feet.
Shower off the excess salt but do not use soap (apart from where needed). Imagine the water washing away any tension. Gently pat the skin dry with a towel. Wrap up in warm Pjs and enjoy a soothing cup of chamomile tea before sleep.
Unlike table salt, rock salt has many minerals and is great for removing toxins from the body.
