In winter like in summer, it is important to keep your body exfoliated and hydrated and what better way to do this than to indulge in an organic homemade wintery scrub?
This week I tried out a DIY recipe by mixing together ingredients and scents that to me are the epitome of winter:
1 Vanilla pod
1/2 an orange + orange zest
1 cup of fine brown sugar
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
*In a bowl mix in the sugar, cinnamon powder and vanilla beans
*Add a sprinkle of orange juice, the orange zest and the coconut oil, mix in all the ingredients with a spoon and adjust the consistency of the scrub as preferred (add more sugar to make it denser, add more orange juice to make it more liquid)
*The sugar will gently exfoliate the dead skin cells
*Orange has astringent properties and acts as a toner to make your skin glow
*Cinnamon simply smells delicious and is known to be used as an antibacterial and exfoliator
*Vanilla beans are said to be anti-inflammatory as well as having soothing properties
*Coconut oil is packed with vitamins and nutrients and is sure to make your skin feel like the softest of all!
