APOTHECARY: Celebrating Women - Let's Scrub!

With March being the month of Women, I thought we could do a nice invigorating recipe for us ladies (and men too if they wish!) to make us feel fresh, glowing and ready for Spring.

This should be a nice simple recipe for you to try yourself at home...

What you need:

  • dark glass amber jar (120ml)

  • soft brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp castor oil

  • 1 tbsp coconut milk powder

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • dried rose petals (optional)

  • 8-10 drops grapefruit essential oil

Method:

- Simply fill your glass jar with sugar and then pour into a mixing dish

- Add to the mixing dish the castor oil, coconut milk powder and enough coconut oil to make a thick scrub - you don't want it too runny

- Finally, add around 8-10 drops of grapefruit essential oil and a sprinkle of rose petals if you wish

- Use in the bath or shower. Gently massage the scrub over your body concentrating on knees, ankles, elbows and backs of thighs

- Follow with a body oil of your choice

CAUTION: Be aware bath floor may become slippery from oils. Do not apply to face

Happy Women's Month!
