Blood Orange Body Scrub
Hello, boho babes! One of our favorite things to do is find new and unique recipes to incorporate into our beauty routine. Recently, we came across an amazing combination of ingredients that left our skin feeling so clean and positively radiant. Today we bring you the ultimate cleansing agent: the blood orange & saffron body scrub. This citrus scrub will leave your skin feeling renewed, refresh and completely moisturized. The blood orange is a powerful fruit, packed with lots of Vitamin C which is wonderful for exfoliating, cleansing and removing dirt from deep within your pores. While saffron is used to fight acne, tone, tighten, and lighten the appearance of redness and acne scars. This simple recipe incorporates vitamin E oil which will help to nourish your skin and keep it moisturized. The combination of these three ingredients is essentially a magic potion for your skin. Let’s give it a try, shall we?
1-organic fresh blood orange
1 cup sugar
5-8 drops of vitamin E oil
1/2 a cup saffron oil
5 drops of orange essential oil (optional)
In a wooden bowl, mix the juice of the blood orange, sugar, saffron, vitamin E oil and essential oil. Mix thoroughly until completely smooth. Use the scrub the next time you shower, or for your next spa day! Make sure to rub it thoroughly into your skin with a washcloth, exfoliating and removing all of the impurities as you go. Rinse with warm water. Use one a week, or as needed.
Store the remaining sugar scrub in the fridge to keep fresh.
