In my previous post about self-pampering, I expressed my interest for home/handmade natural bath body products. As I have said before, I'm not at all a beauty lifestyle blogger. I don't really spend much on purchasing hair & beauty products, but unless it is made of natural ingredients, I don't mind it at all. If it is good for the skin, treating our bodies naturally, why not. I love em' all! Bring it on to me! The more natural, the better.
I had another chance to share about another handmade bath and body product by Claire Organics again. When I first met Louise, the magic-maker behind Claire Organics, I told her how much I love Lavender especially if it is the essential oil. So, I was recommended the Lavender Oatmeal Body Scrub, one of Claire Organics' popular range. This unique body scrub contains contents that are definitely good for our skin. Lavender, oatmeal and sea salt are the natural key ingredients that will help remove dead skin cells when you exfoliate, leaving your skin smooth and soft almost like a baby's skin.
Personally, I like it very much and it has been gentle on my skin. Mind you, I have eczema, and I am pretty careful when selecting bath products suitable for my skin-type. However, the lavender and sea salt really helps. My skin does not itch or feel dry at all, plus the sea salt helps with body/aura cleansing and lavender helps calm your mind and energy level.
When you are on busy schedule, and perhaps can't afford a Spa at the Spa Centre (I don't feel bad because it is costly), the best way to de-stress the natural way in the comfort of your own home is using a natural Body Scrub.
Take some time off (I like in the evenings or at night), spend some alone time and pamper yourself.
Here's How to Pamper Yourself with Claire Organics' Lavender Oatmeal Body Scrub:
1. Dim the lights and turn on nice relaxing music. I would suggest; classical, or perhaps compilations of music for Spa, Yoga, Meditation or even Soft Jazz music.
2. Light Blue scented candles (usually Blue is scent of the sea) or light your aromatherapy burner, try Claire Organics' essential oil. Try mixing 3 drops of Lavender and 3 drops of Ylang Ylang. There are combos you can Google up.
3. Then get in the shower and start the pampering process:
Wonderful! There you go, your self-pampering process. I urge you to try it because self-pampering with natural bath & body products really does help to take the pressure off your mind and physical stress from a very busy day or week. It helps with having a balanced work life.
