I am guilty of putting myself last. As a stay at home mom with two littles and a busy schedule I can forget to eat, sleep, exercise, you name it. It started to show. My skin is super dry from the desert winter and it’s cracking, rough, and breaking out. I hardly ever break out anymore-but when I started to this time I went to my kitchen.
Using DoTerra Frankincense, Lemon, and Maleluca oils I created a head to scrub that leaves my skin and hair feeling properly pampered.
In a 6 oz. airtight glass jar I combined:
4 oz. brown sugar
2 tbs. honey
3 oz. olive oil
4 drops Maleluca
4 drops Frankincense
8 drops Lemon
In the shower I used the scrub on my skin after washing and on my hair before washing it-making sure to give my scalp a good massage. On my skin and hair I left it like a mask to soak in and soften. It smells so good-and tastes good too!
Maleluca is used as an astringent-its tea tree oil. It has anti-bacterial properties. Lemon is also astringent and just smells awesome! Frankincense is supposed to great for cell turnover which is what a scrub is all about-scrubbing away the old, dry, and flaky to show the fresh and dewey. Even though my showers are far from the luxurious-let alone private onesI had before being a mom-this scrub makes me feel like I truly took a minute for myself.
