Clean Body with Natural Ingredients - Part 1


Baking soda is not only for natural cleaning ingredients for house cleaning or baking. It does amazing things on to your body. Here are some tips I leaned from Michael Dejong's book, Clean Body.

Elbows and Knees
To smooth elbows and knees, make a paste of baking soda with just a few drop of water. Work it into your elbows and knees, rinse well, and then follow with just a dribble of olive oil on the same area. Rub the oil in. You'll notice a huge difference even after the first time on try this.

Facial Scrub
In a gentle, circular motion, apply this homemade facial scrub: a brew of three parts baking soda to one part water. Rub the scrub in gentle circles from your forehead to your jawline to your chin, taking your time as you go. Rinse super well to reveal a clean, fresh-scrubbed mug.

Foot Soak
Sprinkle four tablespoons of baking soda to one quarter of warm water. This foot soak for frazzled feet takes only ten minutes and leaves your tootsies fabulously squishy-soft and smooth.

Body Scrub
Give yourself the most fantastic all-over body scrub with baking soda. Your skin will glow with a new-found polish. To eliminate those dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft, tender, and smooth, create a three-to-one paste of baking soda and water. I like adding some sea salt to kick up to a notch, and if you have dry skin, you can drop olive oil or Vitamin E oil and reduce water. Massage it gently all over your face and body. Follow by rinsing well with warm water and allowing your skin to dry.

Bath Salt
Tossing half a cup of baking soda into your bathwater is an amazing skin softener, leaving your hide feeling downright sexy. Pick a night, fill the tub with the hottest water you can tolerate, light some candles, put on some soothing music, and see what happens.
