Spa at Home: For the Body

Spa Girl Pictures, Images and
Photos The body is a stressful thing, and sometimes you need to help it. The recipies listed help repel, deoderize, and rejuvinate. Glycerin and HONEY Sugar Scrub 1 cup fine loose salt or loose sugar 3 teaspoons liquid glycerin 1 teaspoon pure honey 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil Optional: Pinch of lavender blossoms (available in the bulk department of good health food stores), or chamomile, or dried herbs of your choice, chopped exceedingly fine. Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container. Add more liquid ingredients if you prefer a thinner end-product. Stir thoroughly before use. This keeps very well, and in fact, the honey acts as preservative. Use small amounts when scrubbing the nose, being careful not to irritate or get it in the eyes. Scrub elbows, hands, knees, and feet. Rinse in warm water, pat dry, and apply your favorite lotion afterward. GINGER body cremè 2-inch piece of fresh ginger 2 teaspoons light sesame oil 2 teaspoons apricot kernel oil 2 teaspoons vitamin E oil ½ cup cocoa butter Preheat oven on lowest setting. Finely grate the ginger just enough so that you have about an 1/8 teaspoon of ginger "juice." To obtain the juice, squeeze the freshly grated ginger over a small bowl. Place the ingredients (including the ginger) in a glass container and heat just until the cocoa butter is melted and the oils are blended. Pour into a clean, dry container and store in a cool dry place. You can add a few drops of orange or other essential oil for a nice twist. Insect Repellent 2 c. witch hazel 1 1/2 t. citronella essential oil 1 T. apple cider vinegar Combine into a 16 oz spray bottle. Shake vigorously before using. Requires no refrigeration. Apply liberally. Fruit Salad Body Mask This may sound as if you're pouring a smoothie for the skin -- and you are -- but for good reason. Pineapple contains bromeliad, a protein-digestive enzyme which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt. It also counteracts histamines, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is a mild astringent. Grapes are rich in PCOs which provide protection against harmful UV rays, and, are anti-oxidents. Bananas have loads of vitamins, calcium and essential nutrients which keep the skin smooth and soft. Kiwi is high in vitamin C and has enzymatic properties. Honeydew is both soothing and hydrating. 2 slices pineapple - rind removed 1/2 med. honeydew melon - rind removed 1 doz. green grapes 1 med. banana - peeled 1 med. kiwi fruit – peeled Puree all ingredients in food processor. Mixture will be slightly lumpy. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Smooth onto body and/or face, leaving on for half an hour. This is an ideal treatment to use poolside, where lounging is assuring. Rinse off with tepid water, or an outdoor shower. Grapefruit Sugar Scrub 1-1/2 cups white table sugar 8 drops grapefruit essential oil 2 drops red food coloring (optional) 1/4 cup jojoba oil 1/4 cup liquid castile soap Place sugar into a large bowl and stir to break up any clumps. Add the essential oil. Add one or two drops of red food coloring if you'd like it pink! Mix very well to make sure the color is evenly dispersed. Add the jojoba oil and Castile soap next, a little at a time, stirring after each addition. Mix well and the pour into clean container. To use, stand in the tub or shower and massage the sugar scrub onto your skin from head to toe. Rinse. Inhale. Smile. COFFEE BODY SCRUB 2 cups of coarsely ground coffee 1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt 2-3 T massage oil Mix all ingredients together. Take a hot shower to moisten your skin and open your pores. Using wide, circular motions, rub the coffee exfoliant onto your skin with strong, even pressure. Shower off, pat skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion Most Recipes Copyright © Spa 1998-2012 and counting!

Can I substitute sugar with brown sugar?
SpaGirls101010 says:   29 July 2011   964460  
Brown sugar, because molasses is added, is not only thicker and sticky, it's hard to
work with. I recommend buying a cheap package from your grocery/convenience store of
