Sugar Chai Honey Scrub

Posted by kacem Post a Comment

The exotic body scrub is made extra special with the use of the Chai Spice-Infused Oil. The warming, antioxidant-rich chai spices include cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, star anise, ginger, fennel, and black pepper. The black tea found in chai is beneficial in a body scrub formula, as the caffeine stimulates circulation, aids detoxification, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. In Ayurvedic traditions, chai spices are known to be calming, vitalizing, and mentally clarifying.

Sugar Chai Honey Scrub

Sugar Chai Honey Scrub:

YIELDS: 20 ounces

1⁄2 cup Chai Spice-Infused Oil

1⁄4 cup sweet almond oil, or favorite carrier oil

1⁄8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1⁄8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1⁄8 teaspoon ground cardamom

1⁄8 teaspoon ground ginger (dried, not fresh)

1/2 cup raw unpasteurized honey

1/2 cup almond meal

1/4 cup brown sugar


* What you will need: medium-size mixing bowl, measuring cups, fork, jars and lids to fit 20 ounces of scrub


1. To Make: In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix oils, spices, and honey with a fork until well blended. Stir in almond meal, mixing until blended. Then stir in brown sugar until you have a consistent texture.

2. To Store: To preserve the freshness of this natural scrub, do not get water into the jar. Store this scrub in a sealed jar in a cool dark place, out of direct sunlight. Use up within a year.

3. To Use: Use in place of a soap or body wash in your shower or bath. Apply to your skin in small, upward, circular motions. Massage the scrub in small circular motions, starting with the legs and arms, making your way up to the torso, ending at your heart. Rinse well.


HELPFUL HINTS

You can substitute 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger for the dried ginger, but this will reduce the shelf life to 2 weeks, stored in the fridge.
