Bath and Body Recipes for Rough Dry Skin



INTRODUCTION: Exfoliation is a big money issue with cosmetic firms and spas. You can save a pile of money if you make your own exfoliation sugar. One firm sells 1 lb. of Sugar Exfoliation for $60, while you can make it at home for less than $6. 1 pound will last for (4-6) many baths.


HYDROSOLS: After treatment, spray body with Lavender or Rose Geranium. Owyhee hydrosol would also work well.


ESSENTIAL OILS: Especially suited are Lemon peel, Grapefruit, Orange, Petitgrain with added 10% Cistus if you can find it.


EXTERNAL MASSAGE: Standing in the bathtub, Rub yourself all over with Sugar Scrub.


70% by weight sugar, gritty sugar like Turbinado
30 % by weight oil such as Calendula Infused oil or any vegetable oil.
2% by weight of essential oils


This translates to 22 oz or 3 cup of a nice gritty sugar like Turbinado


1 oz by volume of oil
25 drops of essential oil blend (I have used 12 d. Lemon + 12 d. Grapefruit)
Mix together, the vegetable oil and essential oil and then add it to the sugar with a wooden spoon. Let sit. It will separate. But you can just scoop some out with your hand to use.


HERBAL AND AROMATHERAPY BATHS: After you have scrubbed all over with the sugar mixture, take a nice herbal bath. Especially applicable would be a Seaweed bath with whole Seaweed, or an herbal infusion of 1 lemon peeled, 1 orange peeled, 1 large handful fresh Rosemary. (Simmer in 1 qt of water, 10 minutes and pour the infusion into the Seaweed bath). Don’t forget to lay a towel in the bottom of the bath and on the rail in order to help yourself out of the tub. Once I made the mistake of not doing this and my hands were so oily, I had to call for help to get out of the tub. It was very embarassing.


DIET: Fruits and Vegetables. No carbohydrates after 5 p.m. If dieting not after 1 p.m. That means bread and rice and pasta at lunch and big salad and protein at your 6 p.m. meal.


SUPPLEMENTS:
HERBS: Herbs teas with Dandelion, Celery and dark greens.
VITAMINS: Make sure you get enough vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin A.


ALWAYS USE baths, essential oils, hydrosols, dietary supplements and anything that you can possibly think of that will help with your condition. Read! Magazines, books and only the best and most non-newage (not woo-woo!) common sense info.


NETI POT: Finally, do not forget cleansing daily your nose with the Neti pot using an aromatic salt . Sea salt with Thyme and Tea tree e.o. added. A good formula is 2 ounces by quantity of sea salt. Grind or with a mortar and pestle, mash 6 drops of essential oil into 1 teaspoon of the salt. Then mix this with the balance of the salt. Store in an airtight glass jar. Use 1/4 t. salt to 8 oz warm water.
