For a variety of skin conditions use your Healing ‘Salt Glow’ to freshen and renew your skin before your bath or shower.

Preparation – what you will need:

  • Small ceramic bowl
  • 1-4 teaspoon favorite carrier oil (jojoba, rose, light coconut oil)
  • 1 cup sea salt or Celtic or Grey sea salt (detoxifier)
  • 1-4 drops pure essential oil
  • Sterilized instrument such as a stainless steel teaspoon
  • Celtic or Grey sea salt has a more coarse and plump texture. Because of its green clay content it is a more powerful detoxifier and better suited for smoothing out more rough and weathered skin. For more delicate skin areas you may prefer the regular sea salt.
  • RECOMMENDED Pure Essential to use and why:

    ROSE GERANIUM is suitable for ALL skin types! Its regulating properties make it useful for balancing too oily, dry or combination skin types. Rose Geranium soothes sensitive or irritated skin and is useful for treating acne, burns, bruises, shingles, herpes, eczema and dermatitis.

  • Blend together your sea salts and carrier oil until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add 1-4 drops of your chosen pure essential oil or blend to your mixture and blend thoroughly.
  • Add more carrier oil as desired to your ‘Salt Glow’ blend if you prefer a more loose, wet action for your ‘Salt Glow.’

  • Stand over a large bath towel, or in a dry bath tub with bath mat to prevent slippage, as you begin to apply your salt glow and rub your skin gently, using upward sweeping strokes.
  • Start at your toes and work upwards to your abdomen.
