Rosemary Body TreatmentTo invigorate your mind and restore your well-being (while sloughing off dry skin), try this great bath recipe:
1 cup fresh Rosemary
1 bowl of water
1 cup Epsom salts
2 teaspoons of olive, grapeseed or jojoba oil
12 drops of lavender essential oil
Directions: Steep rosemary in a bowl of boiling water for 30 minutes. While your bath water is running, use a dry brush or loofah over your entire body to get rid of dead skin. Strain the rosemary-infused water into a jug or bowl and add the Epsom salts and oil. Stir thoroughly and pour into bath water. To complete this wonderful brew, drop in lavender oil.
