Lavender Sugar Scrub
A luxurious body hommage using our own extra virgin olive oil, rich in the potent antioxidant, vitamin E, and other valuable nutrients, including oleic and palmitic fatty acids along with squalene and phytosterols. Our St. Helena Olive Oil Co. extra virgin olive oil is combined with healing butters of olive, shea, coconut and pomegranate in a base of finely-milled sugar for the ultimate in exfoliation.
Pomegranate extract of the seed contains more than 60% puninic acid which is a valuable conjugated linolenic acid. It also contains tocopherols, sterols and a small amount of squalene.
Gentler than salt, sugar provides a softer exfoliation suitable for more tender skin such as the face. The oils and butters work together in a sensual, fluffy soufflé to smooth away rough skin revealing skin renewed to a silky luster.
We have chosen the various essential oil scent blends not only for their pleasing aroma but also for the various healing qualities and aromatherapy associated with each.
To create the essence of true French Lavender, we have blended our organic Napa Valley lavender essential oil with three other lavenders selected from around the world. The “Lavande” scent which evokes the true, clean, fresh air scent of lavender is hard to accomplish with one single oil. We feel we were able to capture that true scent without relying on any single chemical constituents. Ya! The soothing and anti-inflammatory action of the lavender essential oil will have a balancing effect on the skin and is helpful with dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and acne.
