Aromatherapy Body Scrub

This aromatherapy body scrub treatment serves three important purposes: it exfoliates the skin (removes dead cells), improves blood circulation and increases the skin’s absorbency so that moisturizers can better hydrate and moisturize your skin.

You will need a natural bristle brush, a large towel (keep in mind that it will get pretty dirty so you may want to use an old towel), a bowl, 1/2 cup of finely ground oats, 1/2 cup of ground almonds, 1 teaspoon of dried, finely ground orange peel, 1 teaspoon of rosehip granules, 5 drops of jasmine essential oil, body lotion and warm water.

  • 1. Mix the oats, almonds, orange peel and rosehip granules in the bowl.
  • 2. Add the essential oil and enough warm water to make a fine and crumbly solution.
  • 3. Stand over the towel and cover your body with the mixture. Use pressure and small circular movements to ensure that the small particles in the scrub mixture disloge dead skin cells. The mixture will dry off quickly.
  • 4. Most of the mixture should fall off on its own. Use the soft brush to remove any leftover on your skin. It’s important to use short brisk movements in the direction of the heart to activate blood circulation.
  • 5. Apply your favorite body lotion if you want once this aromatherapy skin care treatment is over.
