Are you looking for a new way to connect with your loved one? Send the kids to Grandma’s for a few days this summer and plan a spa day (or evening) at home with your special someone. Skip the expensive day spa and make your own experience at home with a few simple ingredients.
Start with a nice warm aromatherapy mineral bath with Eupohoric Ylang Ylang. I dissolved a pack of Aura Cacia pure essential oil mineral bath and slipped in to get relaxed. The smell of ylang ylang, bergamot, and ginger uplifts your spirt and warms the body and senses.
Next enjoy a gentle foot or body massage with a sensual sea salt body scrub. Make up a batch of the sea salt body scrub ahead of time using course sea salt, virgin organic coconut oil, and your favorite essential oils (I used Ylang Ylang). Gently massage the sea salt body scrub over dry or rough skin to soften them up.
Finally, finish your massage with some Euphoria aromatherapy body oil and the rest is up to you!
How to Make Sensual Sea Salt Body Scrub
- 1 cup of course Mediterranean sea salt
- .25 ounces of virgin organic coconut oil (liquified)
- 10 drops of Aura Cacia Ylang Ylang III essential oils
Directions: In a small bowl stir the melted coconut oil with the sea salt until evenly distributed. Add the essential oils and stir until well mixed. The mixture will still look course like moist sea salt. Store in a small jelly jar, baby food jar, or other container until ready to use. Chill if desired.
