Sandalwood and orange are the two fragrances that I use to create the Sandalwood Scrub bar. This very popular soap is full of natural anti-oxidants thanks to the coconut oil, cocoa and shea butters added to the recipe. Added ground oatmeal flakes mean it is gently exfoliating for your skin. Scrubs are a wonderful way to help slough off any dead skin cells. Exfoliating the tired, dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing new, healthy cells to take their place. Regular exfoliation leaves your skin much softer and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Tell me more about Sandalwood..
Sandalwood essential oil is distilled from the roots and heartwood of trees that take 50 to 80 years to reach full maturity. In an amazing and lengthy manufacturing process used since ancient times, the mature sandalwood trees are cut down, then left to be eaten by ants, which consume all but the fragrant heartwood and roots. Every part of the heartwood is used, including the sawdust.
The scent, called chandana, is used in aromatherapy to induce a calm and meditative state. It also has an age-old reputation as an aphrodisiac, and in fact, its fragrance is similar to the human pheromone, alpha androsterole.
If you’re into essential oils—or even if you’ve purchased just about any kind of personal care product in the last decade—you know that lavender is the reigning champ when it comes to all scents relaxing. But according to new research, there’s a new soothing scent in town: Behold, the mighty power of your everyday orange. It is uplifting to the spirit, provides a calming effect on the body, and brings happiness and peace to the mind.
Sandalwood Scrub also contains bentonite clay. This natural clay is well known for its anti-oxidant and toxin removal properties.
Very, very nice!
