Soothe that dry, winter skin with a homemade sea salt scrub!

DIY sea salt scrub4

Every year, as soon as the cold weather sets in, my hands become dry and flaky. With flu and cold season in full swing, I turn to excess hand washing, which always strips the moisture from my skin. To slough off dead skin cells and restore moisture, I make a batch of exfoliating sea salt hand scrub and keep it by my kitchen sink to enjoy all winter long.  And I keep some in the tub that I use on my body 🙂

Though it’s perfectly acceptable to keep this scrub to yourself, it also makes a great gift to give around the holidays. It’s remarkably easy to throw together, so as long as you have all (three) of the ingredients on hand, you can whip up a quick batch. It’s a thoughtful, custom alternative to store-bought gifts, and ensures you’ll never show up empty-handed to a party or dinner again.

 

Which Salt to Use?

For this particular scrub, I used coarse sea salt. Sea salt is simply just evaporated seawater, which means it’s not processed and doesn’t contain any additives. Sea salt exfoliates by sloughing off dead skin cells, allowing smoother (and healthier!) skin cells to take their place.

If you have particularly sensitive skin, you can sub brown sugar for the salt. Brown sugar is a soft and gentle exfoliant, which makes it a milder alternative to the coarse sea salt.

Which Oil to Use?

Since there are about 101 uses for coconut oil, I always have some of this miracle-in-a-jar on hand. Coconut oil is deeply moisturizing, as it contains medium-chain fatty acids, which provide hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. As a bonus, coconut oil quickly absorbs into skin, so it won’t leave your hands with a greasy residue.

If your pantry isn’t stocked with coconut oil, olive oil also works as a great natural moisturizer!

Which Essential Oil to Use?

I chose grapefruit essential oil for this scrub simply because it’s my favorite. Grapefruit essential oil brings a fresh, citrusy note to the scrub and leaves my skin feeling energized and bright. It also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, which are bound to come in handy during the winter months. Lemon or orange essential oils would also do the trick.

If you’re looking for something more calming, go with lavender, bergamot, or frankincense essential oils.

Get Ready For Some Natural Energy!

ningxia zyng1

Got energy drinks?

I hate to admit it but I used to drink Red Bull…..and enjoy it!  What I did not enjoy were the side effects like the jitters from the caffeine high or the crash I felt a few hours later.  It’s been almost one year since I was introduced to Young Living and all of its amazing natural products.  It feels so good to be using products that are not only chemical free but made from pure, natural ingredients!

Get ready for some NingXia Zyng!  Let’s spotlight one of Young Living’s new products called NingXia Zyng.  NingXia Zyng is a sparkling beverage that is very light and refreshing. You will not only feel hydrated but also a “Zyng” of energy. Zyng gets it Zing from its proprietary blend of black pepper and lime essential oils. It also contains wolfberry in a puree form along with white tea extract. With a fruitful hint you may taste the pear and blackberry juice concentrates.  NingXia Zyng only contains 35 calories per serving which is 8.4 ounces. Talk about invigorating all of your senses, you are going to love this new drink. NingXia Zyng has no artificial sweeteners, additives or preservatives. It is sweetened with natural stevia.

Roller Bottles make the topical application of oils super easy. Depending on the recipe you add your drops of oils in a roller bottle, and then fill it up the rest of the way with carrier oil. 

Plant Guru Carrier Oil Variety Pack 16oz PRO

Carrier oils are a must-have if you plan to use essential oils for anything other than homemade cleaning products. A carrier oil is simply a liquid vegetable oil of some sort that is used to dilute the very concentrated essential oils.

My favorite carrier oil is Apricot Kernal Oil.  Other options would include olive oil (kinda greasy, but it works), avocado oil, sweet almond oil, and fractionated coconut oil.

You can usually find these at your local health food store, or Amazon carries them.

*Fractionated coconut oil is simply coconut oil that has had the long chain fatty acids removed from it. The benefit of FCO is that it stays liquid at room temp, and is a lot handier to use for essential oil applications than regular coconut oil, which is usually solid at room temp.

Use a carrier oil if you are applying a “hot” essential oil like Oregano or Peppermint, as well as well you are applying essential oils to a child or someone with sensitive skin.

Well……start rolling it up 🙂

DIY Whipped Sunscreen

sunscreen4

Summer time is almost here!

As the weather gets warmer, we will be outside more.  Which means it’s time to put sunblock on and protect our skin.  I use sunblock in my skincare routine do you?  Organic natural sunblocks are amazing but can be pretty pricey.  I love this new recipe that uses #YoungLiving essential oils as a natural alternative.  It’s made with carrot seed and lavender essential oil.  AND the best part is that this natural sunscreen has an SPF of 40………NATURALLY:)

sunscreen7

Ingredients:

1. 2 oz Coconut Oil
2.  20 drops Carrot Seed oil
3. 10 drops Lavender oil

Instructions:

1. Mix coconut oil in bowl till fluffy. Approx. 5 min. You do not need to do this step but I like the way whipped coconut goes on our skin smoother.
2.  Mix in 20 drops Carrot Seed oil and mix well.
3. Mix in Lavender oil 8-10 drops to act as a natural skin protectant. And makes it smell WONDERFUL!!
4. Apply before going in the sun and after swimming or sweating. Repeat application a few hours.

Coconut oil will liquefy when left in heat.  Try to store in a cool place.

The carrot seed oil has a SPF of  38-40!! Coconut oil has a SPF of 2-8. This means you will have an all natural, chemical free sunscreen with a SPF of 40!

Enjoy~
