• Salt Scrub Recipe

    Salt scrubs are meant to increase circulation and help keep skin healthy. When properly performed, they work by exfoliating the outer layers of dead skin cells, whilst revealing the softer younger cells

    8 Cups coarse pickling or Kosher salt.
    2 Cups avocado, untoasted sesame oil or jojoba oil
    1 Cup apricot or peach kernel oil
    1 Cup unsweetened cocoa or ¼ Cup freeze dried coffee crystals
    2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
    honey for smoothing the texture

    Place the salt in a small bowl and add the remaining ingredients.

    How to Use a Body Scrub:

    1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
    2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work to quickly, you won't properly exfoliate.
    3. Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
    4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
    5. Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

    Re: Hair Color Question

    Try coconut oil and lemon juice. It will not change the color of your greying hair but will definitely maintain the health of your scalp and retain the natural color of your hair.
