Some salt crystals from the Himalayas have an off-white to transparent color, while impurities in some veins of salt give it a pink, reddish, or beet-red color, so not all the Himalayan salt is pink.
This salt it’s popular in Ayurvedic, Tibetan, and other traditions. I believe that Himalayan salt’s unique cellular structure allows it to store vibrational energy. Spiritually speaking, salt is considered the great neutralizer. It can help cleanse, heal and balance energy, while repelling negative vibrations; a salt spray or even better a salt scrub is perfect to cleanse your aura from all kind of bad juju.
I regularly cleanse my aura and my personal energy with a home made Himalayan salt body scrub blended and infused with best organic and botanical ingredients (coconut oil, sweet almond oil, flower petals, essential oils and Amethyst)- DETOX,CALM, RENEW.
This rich and nourishing salt scrub is a great remedy for my body and my mind and its actually really easy and fun to make.
Unfortunately this scrub is not suitable if you are pregnant,not suitable for sensitive skin or to use it on your face/neck, because the salt even if it looks silky fine it has a crystal structure that is too harsh for your face and it can make a lot of damage to your skin.
- 250-275 g Himalayan fine salt (I had to grind it myself )
-2tbs Organic Extravirgin Coconut Oil
-1tbs Organic Extravirgin Olive Oil
-1tbs Organic Sweet Almond Oil (fruit +flowers)
-3 drops Organic Rose Hip Oil
-1 drop Rosemary Essential Oil
-1 drop Ylang -Ylang Essential Oil
-3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
-1 drop Clary Sage Essential Oil
-dry organic rose petals, lavender flowers and callendula (all crushed and made it into a powder or as fine as possible )
- 1 Amethyst cluster to add some magic vibe to your salt scrub
-lots of love and few fresh unicorn tears - just joking but if you insist and have such stuff on hand why not ?
-accidental cat hair: if you have cats you know what I mean :))) -joking again ! NO CAT HAIR !!!!
Mix all ingredients (salt +oils +essential oils + crushed dry petals ) or with a spoon in a glass jar until it becomes like a creamy paste. If by accident you added to much oils add extra salt and so on.
The Himalayan salt is a great exfoliator that helps remove death skin cells and as a plus will draw out your toxins and clean not just your body but your mind as well.
The Coconut Oil will leave your skin ultra hydrated, soft, never greasy, just lustrous and sexy looking like, because there is nothing more sexy than a soft, healthy looking skin.
Olive Oil is a powerful anti-aging and antioxidant rich in vit E and vit A, omega 3 and will help your skin get a long lasting shield of moisture.
Almond Oil can reduce inflammation, prevents skin from looking dull, improves blood circulation and it has amazing anti aging properties.
Rose Hip Oil helps with eczema, dry skin and acne scarring, it promotes skin regeneration.
Rosemary essential oil gives a wood green feeling to the scrub, a delightful freshness and it has great benefits for the nervous system, opening the conscious mind and reducing nervous tension and fatigue.
Lavender essential oil pairs wonderful with rosemary essential oil and it has such a relaxing aroma that helps with headache, promotes tranquility, happiness and sleep. Lavender essential oil is also a natural astringent that will tone and firm your skin and it will provide relief from pain in muscles and joints, heals burns and cuts.
Ylang Ylang is sweet, rich and spicy floral and it will lift your mood and for skin has nourishing and protective properties. It blends beautiful with Lavender and Clary Sage and together they help balance feminine hormones.
Clary sage serves as an antidepressant; it boosts confidence and mental strength, leaving you with a feeling of joy and ease. Most important about Clary Sage is the fact that curbs the growth of bacteria and fungal infections, it's antiseptic and helps to reduce skin inflammation and ease painful menstruation cramps.
Use only organic ingredients and premium essential oils. Test for allergies before use. Store it in a glass jar with an airtight lid and keep it away from sunlight, in a dry place. Coconut oil will make your shower /bathroom floor super slippery so watch out and be really careful !
Have fun using it, get relaxed and full of positive vibes !
For a really great shower experience light some candles or incense and play relaxing music.
........ ah yes the Amethyst, for those who wonder : do not mix it with the ingredients :)) I keep a big chunk of Amethyst around my essential oils to offer them a bit of spiritual and magic properties, it clears negative energy, brings peace and helps with general healing, headache, anxiety and insomnia.
