DIY BEAUTY RECIPE: bergamot and vanilla body scrub.



As soon as I see the first sign's of sunshine, that's it, spring has arrived and the spring rituals can begin. Now really is the time to begin a gentle detox process, seasonal food, the temperature and natural body cycles really support cleansing over the next few weeks. Exfoliating your skin is the first step to healthy circulation and circulation is key to maintaining naturally glowing skin. Grab yourself some fresh citrus and prepare this simple body scrub.


Thirsty skin? This is one of my favourite scent combo's - refreshing as well as decadant. As a scrub it's both energising, ridiculously simple and luxurious. A treat to use, you'll feel the sunshine.







I've given you options with this recipe so that you can get creative and use what you have in your kitchen.

1. 1 Cup of Salt: sea salt, epsom or fine pink himalayan 

2. 20ml of Oil: sunflower, grapeseed or jojoba 

3. 20 Drops of bergamot oil

4. 15 Drops of vanilla bean extract: Vanilla extract paste from the cupboard or the seeds from a vanilla pod work just fine

5. 1/2 Lemon, the skin is going in so try to find an un-waxed one, scoop out the seeds

It's so simple, all you need to do is mix everything in the blender. Use fresh or store in a jar. Once your potion is mixed just use it as you would any other shower product, brushing towards the heart with sweeping strokes and circles.




What they do:

Salt: Salt contains minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron.  Salt is deeply relaxing, soothing for sore muscles as well as stimulating healthy circulation, circulation is key to healthy skin, it brings fresh nutrients to the skin while helping to rid the body of harmful toxins

Oil: As well as binding the salt together they will lock all the beneficial moisture in.  For more on 'sweet almond oil' or ' jojoba oil'

Bergamot:  Bergamot essential oil is a unique, ‘sunny’ citrus oil that helps to balance the skin's oil production making it very beneficial for combination skin types. A sweet, lemony fresh top note, with a warm, floral and clean undertone

Vanilla: Vanilla essential oil is rich in anti-oxidants that benefit all skin types this essential oil is warming, comforting and feel-good AND you'll smell delicious



If you love bergamot you'll love the charcoal face mask, there's the extract of two bergamot fruits in every jar.
