Detoxing ourselves inside and out
It’s that time of year to start taking care of ourselves. Let’s start with our biggest organ our skin. This time of year we all get so dry and scaly.
1st things 1st I like to make 2 different scrubs one for my face and neck and one for the rest of me. The facial scrub is a little gentler. I suggest using this once or twice a week. The all over scrub can be used 3 to 4 times a week. I put my Exfoliation scrubs in squeeze bottles and keep in the shower.
Facial Exfoliation Scrub
1 cup super fine sugar or sugar (you can get this at any grocery store)
1/2 cup jojoba, grapeseed or Fractionated coconut oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (anywhere you buy vitamins)
10 to 15 drops of Doterra Essential oil. Suggestions Lavender, Myrrh, Frankincense, Roman Chamomile, Yarrow Pom, Geranium or Greeen Mandarin.
Body Exfoliation Scrub
1 cup course sea salt ( I use Himalayan pink sea salt I find at Ross and TJ Max)
1/2 Cup FCO or Grapeseed oil.
1 Teaspoon Vitamin E oil
10 to 15 drops Doterra Essential oil. Suggestions: Lemon, Zendocrine, Slim and sassy, Wild orange, Peppermint.
Rich Detox oil
4 Oz dropper Bottle
15 drops Doterra slim and sassy Essential oil
15 Drops Doterra zendocrine Essential Oil
Top with FCO or JOJOBA oil
I love this oil so much and use it twice a day after my shower/bath and before bed. I use a dropper or two and apply to all my problem areas ( stomach, hips, butt and over adrenals ( lower back). Massage in for 1 to 2 minutes.
This is such a huge issue for most if us this time of year we have a hard time drinking all the water we need. SO let’s think outside the box. Water does not have to be cold. How about a nice cup of warm water. DOnt want to drink just water. Add a decaf tea bag there are so many yummy flavors. (It doesnt even have to be decaf but if you are shooting for 6 to 8 cups caffeinated might be a lot. A warm cup of lemon water ( 1 drop of doterra lemon oil) 1st thing in the mornings is a great way to get your body up and running properly. Warm water throughout the day will keep you hydrated and healthy.
Why Dry Brush? The action of dry brushing is great way to exfoliate dry winter skin. It also helps detoxify by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process. It also stimulates your nervous system, which can make you feel invigorated afterward. Doing this in a upward motion for 3 to 5 minutes before your shower each day with not only exfoliate but reduces the appearance of cellulite. Some to try click the links below.
A Luxurious Cream Moisturizer
I try to be as clean and use as many natural product as possible what I have not mastered is making lotion. So I use one that is as close to pure as possible. I love cetiphil body cream. We buy it in he 16 oz tubs and add oils. Adding Frankincense, Citrus Bliss and Balance for my day time blend and Lavender and Ylang Ylang for night time. Apply it 2 to 3 times a day for soft and supple skin.
Detoxing Foot Bath
