It’s fall and that comes with a change in seasons and lovely scented with everything pumpkin and cinnamon. Who doesn’t love those smells?
They are amazing – they can lift the spirit and give you memories of past holidays and get you mentally prepared for the holidays.
Orange and Cinnamon Essential Oils are a beautiful combination – Orange is a happy oil that boosts mood and mentality, while Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil encourages healthy circulation and boosts the immune system. Paired together it’s a wonderful combination to use topically in the skin in the form of body scrub.
Body Scrubs are often underappreciated skin treatments – they are easy to make yourself at home and have a number of benefits. A body scrub exfoliates your skin and keeps it smooth – not to mention it helps stimulate your blood circulation and makes your body feel great.
Making them yourself is much easier than forking over the cash at a beauty store ~ which often sells them from $5 – $40. They are made up of 3 things: an exfoliant, an oil and a fragrance.
Many of those budget body scrubs use synthetic ingredients (and synthetic oils) – as much as they might be tempting, it’s far better to make your own with a high grade therapeutic essential oil (see what we recommend HERE).
