Sweet & Sassy Holiday Scrub

2 parts organic sugar

2 parts kosher salt

1 part NovAurora Organic Jojoba Oil

Your choice of essential oils (add 8-10 drops to each 4 oz. of jojoba)--perhaps orange and clove for the holidays?

Mix all together and spoon into an attractive container that has a tight seal. Add a holiday bow. 

Directions for use:

  • During your next shower turn off the water, shake the container of scrub (it separates), and apply liberally. The sugar will gently exfoliate and melt, the salt will detoxify, exfoliate and tingle, the jojoba oil will moisturize, and the essential oil will tantalize your senses.
  • Scrub gently.
  • Resume shower and rinse. Water and a brisk towel-off won't remove that healthy glow. Savor the lasting benefits, and scrub again another day.

 

Peppermint Lip Balm

This protective lip treatment is non-occlusive and non-comedogenic. Since shea butter melts at body temperature, it soaks right into the skin.

6 parts NovAurora organic, refined shea butter  (2 Tablespoon)

1 part NovAurora organic, cosmetic-grade jojoba oil (1 Teaspoon)

2-3 drops peppermint essential oil per ounce

(2 TBS = 1 oz.)

Gently melt the shea butter in a bowl over barely simmering water. Stir with a clean chopstick until melted. Do not allow it to get hot, as high heat will affect the benefits of shea. Add jojoba and peppermint oil and stir well. Pour into small jars and allow to solidify in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
Store at room temperature in a closed container.

Directions for use:

 Apply to the lips. You may lightly exfoliate the lips with a dry toothbrush before applying the softening balm.

NovAurora Bonus: When you order Jojoba plus Shea before December 23rd, we will include 5 half-ounce lidded containers with your order, for you to store your lip balm. Design your own label for a great stocking stuffer.


Spicy Potpourri

This lovely room freshener is warming and smells like Christmas.

2 drops orange essential oil

1 TBS orris root

1 TBS lavender flowers

2 sticks cinnamon bark, broken into small pieces

1 crushed nutmeg

1 TBS fresh calendula petals

1 TBS fresh rose petals

With a spoon or chip stick, mix the essential with the orris root in a bowl. Combine with all the other ingredients and seal in a plastic bag. Leave in a warm place from now until Christmas, or even longer. The potpourri needs time to mature.

Display in a pretty dish, preferably in a small space, like a bathroom. Add more essential oil to revive the fragrance.


Jojoba and Vanilla Hair Treatment

An excellent overnight application for all hair types, it removes grime and helps to seal split ends. When applied to the scalp, too, it will remove/prevent dandruff.

6 parts NovAurora organic cosmetic-grade jojoba oil

1 part apricot kernel oil

1 vanilla pod

Mix the oils together in a screw-top jar. Place the vanilla pod in the oil and leave to infuse for at least three days before using. Do not refrigerate.
