Today I had the absolute pleasure of speaking to Helen Shield on ABC Radio Hobart’s Your Afternoon program. Helen has been running a handy Homeschooling for Adults segment and today wanted to discuss how to make a body scrub that you can use at home.
And what a great idea making a body scrub at home is as we come into Autumn and the dryness that it brings to the skin. In fact, did you know that in Chinese Medicine the element of Metal includes the season of Autumn, the climate of Dryness and the Lung, Large Intestine and skin which are all considered to be prone to dryness!
So you can listen into the radio program here (the salt scrub is the first segment of the show).
And here’s the DIY salt scrub recipe if you want to make it at home with instructions on how to use it. It is a versatile formula that can be used in any season as the salt softens and smooths the skin and the oil brings nourishment and moisture.
