I just received my certification for Topical Applications of Essential Oil!! Oh sweet relief!! For so long now, I’ve been wanting to enhance my ability to speak about essential oils and to help people with one-on-one personalised natural care… And hanging that certification up on the wall – has given me such boost of energy and ideas, confidence and excitement for the future. And I realized how important that feeling is… we need those boosts. Big ones, but also small ones too… So, newly certified – I decided to blend up a remedy that will make you feel refreshed and restored and give you a boost – and nothing has that instant effect like an ocean blue, orange-scented body scrub.
This blue wave is mineral-rich spirulina and cane sugar, which I powered down to feel like the softest beach sand. I can’t stand a gritty, grainy scrub. I like it smooth and lush, it makes your body feel so good, your skin soft like velvet. To get that soft texture, I always blend the sugar in a blender, stopping just before it becomes powdered sugar! A few pulses will do it.
Essential Oil Therapy:
The first thing I learned in my certification, is to keep the essential oils simple, focused. When I think of a boost, I think of citrus – that burst of freshness it cuts through stagnation like nothing else. Orange essential oil is inexpensive, it’s readily available and has feel-good benefits:
creates a bright, invigorating, positive ambiance
clears the mind of worry
supports skin clarity
assists in detoxification
soothes tummy discomforts
Give me a Boost Body Scrub

method: Blend the cane sugar a few seconds, right until it begins to powder. Pour into a bowl, mix in the spirulina powder Add the essential oils to the plant oil and then pour the whole thing into the green-tinted sugar. Mix to combine. In the shower, wet your body and then turn off the water. Scrub all over, from neck to toes See how good you feel when you come out!
