Refreshing-christmassy DIY-Body-Peeling. Lavender, Orange & Lemon.

diy-body-peeling (1)
The past weeks it has become a bit quiet over here on the blog and on my social media channels – in contrast to my daily life, to be honest. I guess I have to balance this out, so a lot of things (or also: too many) things going on in life, balanced out a bit by keeping the blog and social media more quiet. Or whatever. Somehow, it’s a pity, but I think I couldn’t handle being fully active and attentive in both areas right now. As soon as life is becoming calmer again, I will have more head and time for the blog project again, for sure! But better posting little than nothing, right?
Right before Christmas I’m sharing a DIY-post for natural body care with you, presenting an idea for a sustainable, homemade Christmas gift. I’m a huge fan of body brushes and peelings and love experimenting with these things. This time, I combined citrus and lavender and that smells amazingly good! I hope you’ll having fun trying this out!

What you need:

– a bowl
– a jar with lid
– stated ingredients

ideal would be the following:

Ingredients for a 200ml-jar:
1/4 cup oats, ground
1/4 cup cane sugar
1/3 cup himalayan salt
some stone salt
dried peel of 1/4 orange
3 drops of essential lavender oil
3 drops of essential lemon oil (e.g. by BIOSelect via Calmterra Online-Shop)

This is how it works:

1. Ground oats.

2. Ground or grate dried orange peel.

3. Mix dried ingredients in a bowl.

4. Add essential oils.

5. Mix everything well.

6. Fill peeling into a jar, close the lid and store in a dry place.

How you use it:
Mix 2 tablespoons of the peeling-mix with 1 tablespoon of almond, coconut, rapeseed or olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water and stir well. Use in the shower on the wet body.

This jar of peeling is ideal for giving away as a Christams present, but also for treating youself, of course!
