Beauty and Health Wednesday

Beauty_Health_Wednesday_July_1_2015Argentinian Salt and Uruguayan Olive Oil will be the stars of  today’s Beauty and Health Wednesday.

Here are the recipes:

For the shower: Salt Body Scrub

  • 2 Tbsp Salt from the salt flats in Argentina
  • 2 Tbsp Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Uruguay
  • 2 drops of Scentsible Life Ruby Red Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • and a bit of warm water to form a creamy consistency you like

For the Steam Inhalation:

  • 1 Tbsp. Salt
  • 2 drops of Scentsible Life Tea Tree Essential Oil

For the Foot Bath:

  • 1 Tbsp. Salt
  • 2 drops of Scentsible Life Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Scentsible Life Ruby Red Grapefruit
  • 1 tsp. Olive Oil

For the Facial:

  • 1 tsp Scentsible Life Facial Mask
  • 1 Tbsp. Yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp. Aloe Vera Gel
  • 1 drop Scentsible Life Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Scentsible Life Lavender Essential Oil

Tonight, when you return home from a wonderful day, take  time to sit quietly in your favorite place in your home before you start your evening. Be creative with your quiet time. Maybe you want to do a short meditation in your garden, walk through your home with a feeling of appreciation in your heart, or just sit in your favorite place, closing your eyes and let your thoughts wander.

After your quiet time prepare your beauty recipes, and your space where you can sit back and relax, while you soak in the foot bath.

Now begin your regimen. Step into the shower, bringing with you the salt scrub mixture. Let the water run over you for a few minutes, washing away thoughts and feelings about your day, so that your mind and energy can refresh. Then begin to massage the salt scrub mixture into your body from the legs upward. Take your time. It feels wonderful to gently exfoliate your skin. Thoroughly rinse off the salt scrub.

After the shower, continue with cleansing your face with the Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder. Today, before you put on your mask, you give yourself an additional steam inhalation. Boil water in a sauce pan, add the salt and the Tea Tree essential oil. Cover your head with a towel and keep your face 2 inches away from the water, so not to burn yourself. Inhale this mixture for five minutes. Apply the facial mask and step into your foot bath with salt, olive oil and the essential oils, relaxing for at least 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, wash off the facial mask, and treat your face and feet with the Scentible Life Facial Oil massage. Finish your regimen with a spritz of the Scentsible Life Hydrotone.

Enjoy this relaxing, detoxing and rejuvenating Beauty and Health Wednesday regimen.

Summer 2015 Radiant Heart

radiant_heart_summer_2015_sq_no_textIt is Radiant Heart Week. Dreams and spontaneous understandings have started to become part of my nights and days. The theme of the Radiant Heart Summer 2015 is to learn how to see our own lives in a broader way. It is natural to get drawn into the daily routines and mechanics of our lives. Our thoughts and actions are going more into addressing immediate needs without considering long term effects. What is life about, how should we best live our lives? What is our purpose in life? What is right and what is wrong? These questions come up over and over.

Over the centuries we have built a structure to organize our lives. Most of the people in this world have jobs and relationships through which they identify themselves. We build a self-expression of who we are through preferences. These preferences are sometimes inspired by what is in fashion. Are we becoming a society where individualism, heartfelt and real inspiration is no longer desirable? Is anything that is outside of the norm threatening? Does our current power structures – laws and social rules – limit our evolution?

radiant_heart_summer_2015_sqDid we forget to follow our hearts?

Did we forget to follow or hearts? This is the main question,in addition to other related questions, that the Radiant Heart brings to our awareness. Is our desire to become successful more evident, than our desire to find truth, freedom and love? We are living in a time where we have access to so much information on how to do something, on how to relieve mental, emotional stresses, and how to build a successful career. Why does it work only for a few? The Radiant Heart Summer 2015 tries to open our hearts to find meaningfulness in every day life. When we are able to feel and see how important our lives really are, the heart can open and guide us into a way of life that feels right.
Every experience shapes the landscape of our life. Each experience brings richness and aliveness to us, keeping us aware and mindful. When we become aware and conscious that we have been strong and able enough to create the life we currently live, then our perception of what happens in the moment can change. As we now know that we are in charge of building the landscape of our lives, we also have a better chance to pay more attention to events and situations in our lives. We can replace judgments and fears with clarity, an open mind, and the knowing that truth and respect will ultimately win. In order to live a life that is personal, meaningful and happy, we need to allow love, truth and respect for everything that exists to become more important than being right, or being better or wiser than another.

The Radiant Heart Summer 2015 will help us to understand that nothing is wrong with us or our lives. Our lives, lived within the guidelines of the Radiant Heart, can become the foundation for the expression of love for life and the people around us. All interactions with others, nature and evolution can be lived with compassion, respect and truth as priorities.

If you would like to become a part of a growing group of people that incorporate the guidelines of the Radiant Heart into their daily lives, contact us at 310.699.7743 or e-mail us at info@scentsiblelife.net.

We are having our bi-annual Radiant Heart celebration coming up on Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 at 7pm to 10 pm. If you are interested in participating get more info here.

Beauty and Health Wednesday, Uruguay

Banner_for_Beauty_and_Health_Wed_UruguayMy amazing journey started in Buenos Aires, continued to Salta, Purmamarca, Cafayete and Salta in Argentina and then onto Montevideo, Colonia de Sacramento and Punta del Este in Uruguay.  The final day of my journey, today, on Tuesday ends here in Punta del Este.  Tomorrow evening we are headed out to the Montevideo airport to fly back to the States. I had such a great time in these two beautiful countries in the Southern Hemisphere. As I am flying back tomorrow (which falls on Wednesday),  I will be doing my Beauty and Health Evening tonight at a beautiful hotel in Punte del Este.

Punte del Este is so beautiful and great to visit without many tourists. It feels like having the beautiful nature almost all to myself.

What better way to end this beautiful day and amazing journey, than by enjoying a heated indoor pool and hot tub, followed by a facial in the hotel room?

File Jun 23, 8 45 45 AMThis morning, I saved a Kiwi and a banana from the breakfast buffet.  When I prepared my facial, I  mashed and mixed the two pieces of fruit with one teaspoon of the Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder to make my mask. I will leave the mask on over night to rejuvenate and refresh my skin, which by the way, has been exposed to a lot of cold, dry and windy air outside during my adventures down here in the winter air, as well as hot air indoors.

I will miss Argentina and Uruguay, but I am also looking forward to coming back home to Los Angeles. It’s a bitter sweet evening tonight in this beautiful hotel in Punta del Este.

Taking a break in the middle of the week to take care of ourselves is not only great during regular times, but also during vacation! I hope all of you will enjoy your Wednesday Beauty and Health Evening whether you are at home or on the road!

 

 

Beauty and Health Wednesday from Argentina

Beauty_and_Health_Travel_WednesdayAfter a day of traveling through beautiful La Cafajeta and the Quebrada de Concha canyon a hot bath with Lavender and Tea Tree feels really good. While soaking in the bath tub I refresh my face with a cleansing powder mask made with 1 Tablespoon of fresh, local Yoghurt and 1 Tablespoon of Scentsible Life Cleansing powder.

Hope all of you enjoyed the Beauty and Health Wednesday evening as much as I do.

 

Beauty and Health Wednesday

Almond_Cappuccino_Aloe_Mask

A little pre summer sun and fun is on the menu today for Beauty and Health Wednesday. Ruby Red Grapefruit, Aloe Vera and Almond Cappuccino are ready to help set the atmosphere to lift our moods, calm our nervous systems and to tone and firm our skin! How great 🙂

Take a break today or in the evening and put up your legs and enjoy an Almond Cappuccino facial, which by the way, you can apply it to your entire body! If your out and about during the day or at work, make a conscious break from the events of the day after you get home. Take a quick shower to wash off all the stimuli that your body received during the day. Then get ready for a relaxing evening.  Set up a quiet space where you can soak your feet and relax comfortably. Put on some of your favorite music if you like.  Then you will be ready to make your cleanser, mask and foot bath!

Prepare your skin care products:

Cleanser: Mix about 2 teaspoons of Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder with enough plain yoghurt to form a creamy consistency (also about 2 teaspoons).  You can experiment with the proportions to get the consistency you like.

Almond Cappuccino Mask: Mix 1 Tablespoon of Scentsible Life Almond Cappuccino with 1 Tablespoon hot water and 2 Tablespoons of fresh Aloe Vera Gel (or store bought if you don’t have fresh) into a blender. Blend well (about a minute). The mixture should have the consistency of milk, watery but not too thin. Add 2 drops of Red Ruby Grapefruit and stir to blend. Viola!

Prepare warm/hot foot bath:  add 2 drops of Red Ruby Grapefruit essential oil to warm to hot water in your foot bath

You are almost ready for the foot bath.

1. First wash your face with the cleansing mixture and then rinse well with warm water.

2. Apply the Almond Cappuccino Mask to your face, arms, hands, legs and feet.

3. Enjoy soaking your feet in your warm foot bath for 15-20 minutes.

While you soak in your foot bath, close your eyes and enjoy the quietness, letting your thoughts wander. Breath evenly and calmly, thinking about the richness and the beauty you have in your life.

I usually leave my Almond Cappuccino Mask on over night, tuck in and watch one of my favorite movies or read a good book and complete my beauty regimen in the morning with a fresh morning rinse.  After you rinse off the mask, apply facial oil and hydrotone to your face, legs and arms. I always find this regimen extremely refreshing!

Enjoy!
