Tulsi Luminous Body Scrub
Indulge in a moisturizing and exfoliating scrub that will leave your skin feeling silky soft minus the mess. This non-greasy pink sea salt scrub is infused with the calming and balancing aroma of tulsi and lavender essential oil. It will soothe the spirit, while it smoothes the skin.
Nutrient-rich pink sea salt delivers minerals and gently exfoliates rough, dry skin. Deeply moisturizing plant oils of coconut and shea protect and moisturize without leaving the skin feeling greasy. Tulsi essential oil, also known as the “Elixir of Life” because of its healing powers, has an intoxicating aroma that can either calm or invigorate your senses, whichever your body desires. Lavender, a flower that needs little introduction, helps calm the mind and relax the nervous system. This combination smoothes the skin, promotes healthy circulation and deeply moisturizes to reveal a glowing, beautiful exterior.
Tulsi essential oil is a sacred Ayurvedic herb and is considered to be a goddess, mother medicine of nature, incarnated in plant form. While the plant looks similar to basil, it has an intoxicating aroma that resembles a blend of cinnamon, peppermint, clove, basil, and licorice. It is considered to be a balancing and grounding herb, that works wonders on many types of ailments. It has even been shown to reduce cortisol levels which helps lower stress. The essential oil found in the leaves has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and adaptogenic properties — both stimulating or sedative, depending on what your body needs.
Lavender essential oil of the plant Lavandula Augustifolia is used for this oil. The oil of this particular species of lavender is especially balancing and healing to the nervous system. Topically, it has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and general skin healing properties.
Himalayan Pink salt is one of the purest salts available. It is a hand-mined salt that is derived from ancient sea salt deposits. It was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago. Himalayan Pink salt provides essential minerals and trace elements like magnesium, which is said to help with bone health and can even reduce anxiety. This salt, when used to massage skin, helps improves circulation.
Coconut Oil is often considered a heal all beauty solve, and there is good reason why! Coconut oil is rich in beneficial fatty acids, including lauric acid, which deeply moisturize the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help calm and soothe dry, irritated and sensitive skin.
Shea Butter is pressed from the nut of the karite tree, shea butter offers a rich source of free-radical fighting antioxidants. It is a superior emollient and moisturizer, leaving skin softer, more supple and healthier.
Using a body scrub is so much more than sloughing away dead skin cells. Starting from your legs and working your way up, use about a tablespoon of the scrub on wet skin and massage in a circular motion, moving towards the heart to promote healthy circulation.
This scrub is not just about skincare, it is also about self-care. It was designed to not only give you silky smooth skin, but to also give you a mental break, while in the shower or bath. Take a few deep breaths of the aromatherapy blend to help relax your nerves and boost positive energy.
This scrub can also be used as a bath soak. Throw a few tablespoons in a warm bath, or use as a scrub in the bath and enjoy the mineral and aromatic properties of this pink sea salt scrub while you soak.
Good to Know: This scrub is a sea salt scrub, which provides proper exfoliation and promotes good circulation. It has a coarser feel than a sugar scrub. This scrub gets its pink color from the Himalayan salt (not from clays or other color additives). For this reason, color may vary from batch to batch.
We love following this scrub with the Apoterra Rejuvenating Body oil.
