Bottega Organica Sea Salt & Peppermint Body Scrub
Some products instantly become an staple in my life. Bottega Organica’s Sea Salt & Peppermint Scrub is one of them. It is so important for us (especially those who live in cities) to detoxify our body, scrub off all of the dirt and leave all those dead skin cells behind. However, many ‘healthy” scrubs and soaps contain ingredients that are chemical-ladden and could end up causing more harm long term than good. This is why I love Bottega, their ingredients are some of the most pure, organic & potent I have ever seen. Read those labels, you may be surprised what you find! You know what they say, “if you couldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your body”.
My favorite thing to do with this scrub is to rub it all over my body and use a neutral dead sea sponge. Any natural sponge will do, but really go at it. As I am rubbing and scrubbing, I use positive affirmations and mantras to infuse good thoughts and vibrations into my body. I say things like, “I love my body, it is beautiful and is always letting go of all that does not serve its highest good.” I used to be insecure about my legs and especially the back of them, but using these affirmations really has changed my relationship to them. I notice that by using this high quality scrub, drinking lots of spring water, eating fresh whole foods, maintaining consistent exercise and rubbing high quality oils into them, has altered their shape and tone tremendously.
The scrub leaves my body with a shimmery glow and a fresh scent of peppermint that lasts for hours. I do not use traditional fragrances anymore, mostly organic essential oils, so using this product takes that step out of the equation. Also, if I rub this on my skin prior to shaving, once I rinse it off, my skin is oiled up enough that I can do a nice clean shave. I love it! Efficient, clean & pure. It’s also gentle enough to use for sunburns & after sunbathing. It leaves the skin feeling soothed and calm — definitely a product to try for itchy, dry and irritate skin. This one is a Summer Essential to keep you cool, your skin feeling its best and most refreshed all season long.
