Peppermint foot scrub

It has been a while since my last post. Holidays are over so it is back to posting. I had a wonderful summer break on a sunny island of Ibiza, days filled with swimming in the sea, lying on the beach and listening to the music! Will be posting about Ibiza soon, got few nice photos to share.

During holidays my skin/body care routine was quite basic. I was using rosehip oil to cleanse my face, lavender water as a toner, I moisturized my body after every shower with jojoba oil and once did sugar body scrub. So now it is time to go back to all pamper sessions!

Let’s start from the feet today. First, prepare feet soak by filling a bowl with a hot water and some sea salt. Keep your feet in that salty bath for about 10 minutes, that will soften your skin. Using pumice remove all hard skin on your heels and toes.

Then prepare that simple lovely feet scrub. Mix some jojoba oil – any oil would do – with sea salt crystals, add few drops of glycerin ( optional ) and few drops of peppermint essential oil. That smells really good!

 Take a handful of scrub and using circular movements massage your feet and toes. Dry your feet, massage a dab of an oil in your toe nails and onto your feet, pop the cotton socks on to lock the moisture in. Put your feet up and relax!  Once you take the socks off, your feet will feel fresh and rejuvenated.

Beauties from Naturallythinking.com

Yes! The box from Naturallythinking arrived yesterday and I had so much pleasure in opening it! It is a lovely company promoting natural, organic spa and aromatherapy products. They are all paraben free, vegan and animal friendly. They really stock everything what you can dream off from essential oils to body butters and even jars and bottles. They also have a shop down in Carshalton, South London but I haven’t been there yet. I am planning to go the The Lavender Harvest at the end of the month and pick up by hand some of the finest English lavender. Check their website here http://www.naturallythinking.com/ or find them on Facebook. Last weekend I visited Naturally Thinking shop in Carlshalton. Right in the middle of High Street of this small town, the shop has a nice dispaly and really spacious inside. I got some essentail oils, good prices there! I will definitely go back there another time again.

I have ordered some floral waters, macadamia and jojoba oils and two essential oils. I love the packaging which is recyclable and environment friendly. I keep them on my desk because they look so lovely! Colourful labels. Lavender water is purple and rose one is pink! How simple and how perfect! I love they give info about sourced product like rose form Bulgaria, lavender form England, orange from Brazil, witchazel from USA, grapefruit from Cyprus.There is also information about how the product works and how to use it.Image

All thumbs up for Naturallythinking!!
