DIY: 4 alchemic synergies for Spring

Updated: Jul 25, 2020

Lots of people undertake some form of detoxing and rejuvenation in the spring. Increased exercise, exposure to fresh air and sunlight, lighter foods, fasting and a trip to the spa are some of the common ways people choose to detox. These are all good practices. But, why not add aromatherapy and get a bigger, more enjoyable bang for the effort?

Every detox and revitalising program is more successful when it’s done along with some extra help. Essential oils and aromatherapy also help detox the body, tonify the digestive and elimination systems and rejuvenate the skin. Two excellent ways to add aromatherapy to your detox program are with scrubs and self massage.

Salt and scrubs are wonderful for a stimulating detox. This abrasive action of salts and scrubs stimulates and exfoliates the skin and improves circulation in both the physical and energy bodies. Scrubs and manual manipulation of muscles activates lymphatic flow and the elimination of toxins from the body. Natural sugar and salts such as epson salts, sea and dead sea salt are more abrasive, but can be finely ground to reduce the abrasiveness and still offer the beneficial stimulation.

Salts contain minerals and epson salt is high in magnesium. Plant-based scrubs such as finely ground nuts or fruit kernels add a bit of natural abrasive action as well as nourishment. Natural clay draw toxins from under the skin. Many clays also contain minerals that help rejuvenate the skin and nourish the body. Natural clays are a soft and soothing way to detox the skin.
