We found a wonderful book, Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life
by Sophie Uliano, which has some great recipes for “green” bath products using items typically found in the kitchen. We love this idea since it’s our ticket to avoiding those dangerous ingredients that are found in most beauty products today.
One recipe we thought we’d share now is a salt rub—an easy, completely safe, perfect antidote to the aftermath of too much sun, wind, heat, etc. If you struggle with dry skin, you’ll LOVE this!
Gorgeously Green Salt Rub
2 cups fine sea salt
4 cups apricot seed oil or almond oil
20 drops of your favorite essential oil (mixing lavender, geranium and orange is always nice)
Simply combine all the ingredients in a glass jar and stir or shake to blend. Get in the shower, wet your skin and then scoop out a handful of the scrub. Apply to your skin, and rub and scrub from your neck to your toes.
We’d like to invite you to share any of YOUR “green” beauty secrets with us—together, let’s spread the word about all the goodness that can go FROM KITCHEN TO BATH! So write us with your ideas and we’ll print them!
