Product Spotlight - Natural Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub

Today I am doing a Product Spotlight on our Natural Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub!

Our Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub is made with a mixture of organic cane sugar, sweet almond oil, lemon juice, pure honey and lemon essential oil.

Honey is used to soften and heal the skin tissue and help attract moisture to the skin. Lemon Essential oil is a good remedy for increasing the luster of dull skin. It is astringent and detoxifying in nature, and rejuvenates dull skin. It is also recommended for oily skin.

Honey's natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays, supports the skin's ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple. One of the most common natural skin care benefits with honey is related to treatment of minor acne which could be caused by hormonal changes or "heatiness in the body", as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) would call it to refer to the imbalance of yin and yang in the body. Honey absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent.

Lemon essential oil is commonly used for various skin conditions. The antibacterial effects treat cuts and wounds on the skin so they can heal. Lemon essential oil soothes itchiness caused by bug bites. It relieves eczema and similar skin conditions and improves signs of aging on the skin, such as age spots. Lemon oil is also good for acne, due to its antibacterial and astringent qualities. Since it is astringent, it can improve oily skin.

When you regularly exfoliate your skin with a sugar scrub, it becomes healthier in appearance and function. After dead skin has been exfoliated, your body’s largest organ works more efficiently to expel toxins and take in nourishment. Skin becomes more uniform in appearance, is softer to touch, and has a radiant glow. Sugar scrubs are also gentler, less dehydrating than salt scrubs and be used by all skin types.

Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt

Himalayan Crystal Salt is not just for use in cooking!  It has other remarkable health benefits.

Start Each Day with a Healthy Sole

The ideal way to use Himalayan Crystal Salt is in the form of a sole (so-LAY). Drinking the sole when you awake each morning is like getting up on the right side of the bed. It provides the energizing minerals you need daily to recharge your body, and it helps set the stage for a day of vitality.
Essentially, a sole is water saturated with Himalayan Crystal Salt. The sole contains about approximately 26 parts of salt to 100 parts of water. Prepare the water and salt combination in advance (see directions to the right). Each morning place a teaspoon of the sole mixture in a glass and fill with 8 ounces of pure spring water. Drink it immediately or sip it while getting dressed, checking emails or preparing breakfast. The water helps transport the electrolytes throughout the body to all the many places they are needed.
The vibrational energy of the Himalayan Crystal Salt remains in your body for 24 hours.
A teaspoon of sole contains 480 mg of sodium, or 20% of the Daily Reference Value of 2400 mg based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet.

How to prepare the Sole

Sole is a mixture of water and salt. The object is to saturate the water with dissolved salt so it can't hold anymore. You'll know that you've created sole when there are undissolved salt crystals in the water. You can't oversaturate the water with salt. The crystals will simply drop to the bottom of the container.

*       Place several Himalayan Crystal Salt stones or Himalayan Crystal Salt granules about an inch deep in a glass container. (A canning jar works well.)

*       Cover the salt with two to three inches of pure, spring water. Let the salt dissolve for 24 hours.

*       If all the salt dissolves in 24 hours, add more salt to the container. The sole is finished when the water can no longer dissolve the salt and the salt crystals drop to the bottom of the container. There will always be salt crystals in the jar. It doesn't matter if you have only a few crystals or many. The water is saturated and is now sole.

*       Cover the container to prevent the water from evaporating. Since salt is a natural preservative, the sole will keep forever. It can't spoil or go "bad".

Benefits of a Salt Glow Treatment

A Salt Glow treatment is one of the most popular spa services when having a day out at the spa. It is essentially an exfoliating massage which leaves the skin feeling super moisturized.

Benefits of Salt Glow Spa Treatment
  • It exfoliates the skin and removes dead cells, sebum and dirt from the surface of the skin. It increases blood circulation and helps the skin breath better. It helps the skin absorb moisture better and reduces fine lines and acne.
  • It is often a cleaning treatment before moving on to more specialized massages. As it makes the skin absorb moisture better, further treatments with other nutrients are more effective following the sea salt treatment.
  • If one is persistent with the therapy it will give the body a soft, polished and nurtured look.
  • As in any massage therapy, apart from physical aspects there is also a psychological healing involved. It helps to dispose off negative energies and promotes a feeling of general well being.

Relax with a Natural Caribbean Bath Salt

Bath salts help relax muscles, ease joint pain, soften skin & detoxify the body.  Part of the bodies natural detoxification prcess occurs when the body secrets moisture in the form of sweat.  The moisture in these body secretions contain urea and other impurities.  The detoxification occurs when salts dissolved in bath water wash away the body secretions from the surface of your skin and force the extraction of impurities through the pores of your skin, and into the bath water through osmosis.

Our Natural Caribbean Bath Salts are made from pure Caribbean Sea Salt and then fragranced with pure essential oils.

Available Essential Oil Fragrances

Have a date night at the gym!

You and your better half may be at different fitness levels and have entirely different goals, but you can still receive wonderful benefits from working out together.  Here are just a few reasons to start exercising with your better half:

With someone else watching your form and being there to spot you when you need it, you'll exercise more safely than if you were alone.

Quality time:
Due to careers, busy lifestyles and other responsibilities, many coules spend most of their time apart; instead of hitting the gym alone, plan a workout time that fits both of your schedules.  You'll reach your fitness goals, without sacrificing the one-on-one time that every partnership needs.

Rekindle that spark:
Exercise causes your brain to release endorphins which elicits feelings of happiness, reduces stress and increases arousal and libido.  Studies show that men and women who exercise regularly have a greater physical attraction to their mates and a deeper emotional bond.

Love for a lifetime:
Taking care of your body and your health shows the person you care about that you want to be your best for them and that you want to be around for years to come.

In many couples, one partner tends to favor cardio (mainly women) while the other tends to favor strength training (men).  By working out together you can balance your fitness program to include more of both.

There are a lot of exercises that you can do solo, but when you work out with your partner you can also try some new moves.  Try taking salsa dancing lessons, couples yoga, or just cycling side-by-side.

It works:
Studies show that couples who exercise together increase their chances of reaching their fitness goals by 90 percent!

Create Bliss in the Bath

A sole bath with Himalayan Crystal Salt is like soaking in a sea of energy as the body's electrical currents are reactived. No, you won't get electrocuted! But you'll likely notice a sense of intense relaxation after a sole bath. You may even feel tired and exhausted. Try the sole bath on a Friday evening followed by a weekend of rest. By Monday morning you'll experience the good effects as a rejuvenated, more vivacious person!

Here's how you prepare a sole bath:

1.     Pour two pounds of Himalayan Crystal Salt, either the granulated version or the large crystal stones, into an empty, plugged bathtub

2.     Cover the salt with warm water

3.     Let the salt dissolve in the water for half an hour

4.     Fill the tub with warm water no hotter than 98.6 degrees F

5.     Immerse yourself in the water and relax for 30 minutes. Ahhh...

6.     Dry off. Do not put lotion or any other topical preparation on the skin immediately following the bath

7.     Relax for at least another 30 minutes or go to bed
