Olive Body Scrub – Get Radiant Skin Under 3 Minutes
Truly a little miracle, the olive has a large variety of beneficial uses, beginning with your skin in the form of an Olive body scrub.
I know what you’re thinking… isn’t oil bad for the skin?
After all, why do American women spend all that money on “oil-free” face products, don’t oil-based products clog skin?
The answer is no, olive oil will not produce harmful skin result or block your pores.
It’s rich, satin consistency provides a unique nutrition to your body and will leave you feeling as happy-go-lucky as the girls in those body wash commercials.
So, it is a perfect combination to create a homemade olive body scrub using olive oil, as your skin will gulp up moisture and nutrients.
An olive body scrub incorporates the best of salt scrub exfoliation properties with the olive oil nutrition and vitamins.
It can be used as an exfoliant for your rough hands and feet, as well as an everyday body treatment which can be a little bit gentler. Either way, there is no reason to be afraid of this oil-based all natural remedy which has been around within the Mediterranean for hundreds of years.
Did you think it was a coincidence that Mediterranean women have a smooth and envious complexion worthy of the deepest envy?
I have provided an easy to follow recipe for a homemade olive body scrub, for you to try at home. This is the most basic recipe for an olive body scrub, and you can mix to the consistency which you prefer.
Olive Body Scrub:
- 1 Cup Olive Oil
- ½ Cup Sea Salt
- ¼ Cup Honey
- 2 tsp. Lavender Essential Oil
- Mix Olive Oil and Salt together in a large mixing bowl, until they reach the paste like consistency.
- Add in slightly melted honey, mix well.
- Add in essential oil of your choice last (I recommend lavender).
- Avoid making the scrub too runny, as this will not properly exfoliate your skin.
- Seal in individual containers at room temperature (do not refrigerate).
Interestingly enough, Greek mythology states ambrosia (a nine-fold extract of honey) was the food of the gods and goddesses.
Gods such as Zeus relied on honey for their daily nourishment, and it provided them with unrivaled strength. According to this folklore, honey was a divine symbol for the Greeks and honey mixed with blood was the sweetest oblation.
How could you resist incorporating this powerful ingredient into your next body scrub endeavor?
I hope that this olive body scrub recipe will bring you the glowing and rich skin you have been dreaming of, so put that extra olive oil to good use and enjoy.
