For a variety of skin conditions use your Healing 'Salt Glow' to freshen and renew your skin before your bath or shower.
Preparation – what you will need:
- Small ceramic bowl
- 1-4 teaspoon favorite carrier oil (jojoba, rose, light coconut oil)
- 1 cup sea salt or Celtic or Grey sea salt (detoxifier)
- 1-4 drops pure essential oil
- Sterilized instrument such as a stainless steel teaspoon
Celtic or Grey sea salt has a more coarse and plump texture. Because of its green clay content it is a more powerful detoxifier and better suited for smoothing out more rough and weathered skin. For more delicate skin areas you may prefer the regular sea salt.
RECOMMENDED Pure Essential to use and why:

YLANG YLANG has traditionally been used in beauty and skin care as its plant hormones promote cellular regeneration. Its moisture balancing effect on the skin's natural sebum production, makes Ylang Ylang oil suitable for sensitive, oily, dry and mature skin types.
CARROT SEED is harmonizing for ALL skin types Carrot Seed oil's skin nourishing action makes it a useful addition to most facial and skin care formulas. Its cooling effect is ideal for soothing sensitive or inflamed cell tissue.
