Geranium Rose Salt Scrub

Roses are traditional and symbolic as tokens of love during the Valentines season. With that in mind, we put our twist on the tradition and made a Geranium Rose Salt Scrub for the tougher skin on the body.

A little about the essential oil Geranium Rose:
Rose Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) has a broad range of uses and a beautiful and complex sweet fragrance of roses and citrus. It is very cooling, anti-inflammatory and uplifting, a wonderful oil to have handy for the dog-days of summer.
For the skin, this oil is beneficial in healing acne, eczema, cellulite, dermatitis, psoriasis and a plethora of other issues. It can balance sebaceous gland secretion, encourage lymphatic and blood drainage and help heal wounds. {source and more information}

Geranium Rose Salt Scrub Recipe

1 cup of salt in the combination of 90% pink himalayan salt
and 10% Epsom salt
1/2 cup almond oil { more if your prefer a wetter scrub}
8-10 drops of organic geranium rose essential oil {start with less and increase to personal preference}

Place both salts in a bowl and blend together
Add almond oil
Add essential oil
Blend well
Transfer to a jar
Use on the feet, back of arms, back of thighs, buttocks 1-2 times per week. Will last up to 2mos. Stir before using.

Did you know: Pink himalayan as salt bath is detoxifying.The replenishing nutrients stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles. Naturally rich in 80+ nourishing and skin-replenishing minerals, bathing with pink bath salt is a healing and therapeutic experience for mind and body. {source and learn more}

If you want to give the gift of roses this Valentine in a different way, try this scrub.

We prettied up a jar with a cupcake paper and a heart glued on top.

Here's to healthy "rosy" glowing skin!

You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:26-29
