Salt, that ingredient that gives flavor to life, that is not lacking in kitchens and that, from now on, you will also want to have in your bathroom. Although there are many types of salts, we are going to dedicate our article to a very special salt, Dead Sea Salt, considered the lowest body of water on Earth, with a salinity 10 times higher than that of the Mediterranean Sea!
Going back in time, we already find references to the Dead Sea Salt in Ancient Egypt, used with quite varied uses: as an ideal remedy to combat skin diseases such as dermatitis and psoriasis, to reduce inflammation of the tissues and soothe the pain of the joints or to help strengthen bones, hair, and nails. At HandMade Beauty we are going to note one more use: as a Regenerating Body Scrub, capable of restoring softness to the skin.
What do we need to prepare our recipe?
2 tablespoons of Dead Sea Salt
· 4 tablespoons of Vegetable Oil. We recommend Almond or Apricot Nut oils, as examples of vegetable oils, since they are suitable for all skin types, hydrating, nourishing and easy to massage. The oil will be our base and our lubricant in this natural remedy.
· 2 drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. A perfect essential oil to activate circulation and lift your spirits, as well as giving off a delicious aroma.
The preparation is very simple: we just have to add the salt to the vegetable oil, and add the 2 drops of our essence to the mixture. One detail that we must take into account in our preparation is the size of the salt crystals: if they are very large, we will pulverize them previously with the help of a mortar, until the desired size is achieved.
When applying it to the body, we will do it in the shower, dry, with circular movements, starting at the ankles and going up to the trunk and arms, following the direction of circulation to activate it simultaneously. The feeling of softness and reactivation is instantaneous!
Do we treat ourselves to a dose of repair and energy from the first shower?
