This week’s Quarantine Beauty Routine Recipes are for healing your feet and sunburned shoulders after spending hours walking in the sun protesting. Here’s what you’ll need:
“Pep in your step” – Peppermint Foot Scrub:
• 1-2 cups sugar or epsom salt
• 1/2 cup coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil
• 10 drops peppermint essential oil or fresh peppermint
Mix all your ingredients together and pour into a jar. (If you are using fresh peppermint, you may want to grind it up first.) You can use more or less sugar until you’re happy with the consistency. Using more sugar will result in a more firm scrub. Store for up to 6 months. Use once a week in a foot bath or prior to showering.
Healing Aloe Lotion:
• 1/4 cup coconut oil
• 1/4 cup almond oil or other carrier oil
• 1/4 cup aloe vera gel or 1 medium sized aloe leaf
• 5 drops lavender and frankincense essential oil (optional)
If you are using fresh aloe vera, cut and clean it first. Blend into a gel. Combine your aloe vera gel with the almond oil and coconut oil. and blend using a hand mixer for 8-10 minutes. This will make the lotion airy and light. Once it is light and buttery, add any essential oils you are using. Store for 3-4 months in the fridge and reapply as necessary.
