Pamper Yourself This Season With This DIY Winter Scrub

Posted: November 18, 2013 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

DIY Winter Salt Scrub
Sometime ago, I wrote an article on winter body wraps for Les Nouvelle Esthetiques.

While the article was directed at spa professionals, you too can try out a simpler, DIY version of this wrap all on your own at home.

Now that the weather is cold, many of us face annoying problems like dry skin, infections and seasonal blues. Moreover, during this time, we want something that can warm us, comfort us and lift our spirits. If you do not have the time to visit a spa, just try this easy aromatherapy recipe – it pampers the skin and gives fabulous results.

What you will need:


I recommend the Winter Blend because it contains just the right mix of ingredients that are needed to fight off winter-related problems, and all in measured quantities. Here’s how it works:

Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Boosts the immune system and protects the body against disease-causing organisms. Also energizes the body when you feel dull and run down.  

Grapefruit Essential Oil: Has a refreshing and cheerful scent that instantly brightens up the mood and chases away the blues. It’s natural diuretic properties help in curbing water retention and minimize the appearance of cellulite.

Lavender Essential Oil: A versatile oil that fights depression and germs with equal fervor. Relaxes and calms an anxious mind.

We are going to choose Jojoba oil as a base for its super skin-hydrating properties. Not only is it great for dry, flaky skin, it also cleanses the pores without blocking them. The best part about Jojoba oil is that it suits all skin types.

Sea Salt works as a natural exfoliator that is not too harsh on the skin. It removes layers of dead skin, revealing soft, youthful skin underneath. It also replenishes the skin’s natural mineral content.

What Is The Procedure:

Simply mix 1 cup of  Sea Salts with ½ cup of Jojoba Oil and 20 drops of the Winter Blend. Use this mixture as a scrub in the bathtub or shower. 

This recipe does not require too many ingredients and hardly takes up any time. You can easily work it into your routine and practice it regularly throughout the winter months. In fact, it even makes for the perfect holiday gift for your loved ones.

Do try it out and write in to share how it helped you.

Geranium Essential Oil
I have always loved Geranium Essential Oil for its sweet flowery fragrance, and because of its versatility, it is undoubtedly among my favorite essential oils.

The best thing about Geranium essential oil is that it can be used for so many things, and suits everyone. Women in particular will love Geranium for its beauty-enhancing and balancing properties. I discovered them long ago, which is why I have used it in several of my women-centric products such as Alivio Circulation Body Oil, Hair Elixir For Dry Hair, Radiare Essential Oil Blend and  Woman’s Help Body Oil.

All successful people have one thing in common – they never lose track of their priorities and are incredibly focused.  Sadly enough, that is not true for most of us.

We often start out a new project with passion and enthusiasm, only to lose steam midway. Sometimes we give in to distractions and at other times, poor health holds us back.Read more
