Sweet Orange and Cinnamon: Skincare Superheroes
There are some things that just smell like cold weather and the changing season - like sweet orange and cinnamon!
Every year when the weather turns chilly my body craves the nutrients from fresh oranges, and your skin is no different. The Orange Cinnamon Body Scrub has dried organic orange peel as well as sweet orange essential oil, to help exfoliate the dead skin while rejuvenating and feeding the new cells underneath. And did you know that sweet orange oil is used by many as a natural mood lifter? A great aid for fighting the Winter Blues, sweet orange oil is a staple in our house for when crabbiness strikes.
You know those little bumps you get all over your legs from wearing pants/long underwear/wooly tights day after day after day? Well, sweet orange is a natural anti-inflammatory. Take THAT, winter skin bumps! And sweet orange oil is thought to increase the production of collagen and improve circulation. Talk about a super hero of an essential oil!
Then there's the cinnamon - one of my all-around favorite healing herbs. Used for acne and eczema (take that AGAIN, annoying skin bumps!), cinnamon also has antiseptic properties. Add in some moisturizing coconut oil, and you've got a body scrub just right for the season.
The Orange Cinnamon Body Scrub is $11 for an 8-ounce jar.
