Imagine yourself in an immense rainforest, overlooking a beautiful waterfall. The water so crystal clear free of any pollutants and debris. Some people have learned to live as one with the rainforest. Only using what they need and taking care of their home, the forest, with the most respect.
I have been reading a book called Health and Beauty from the Rainforest: Malaysian Traditions of Ramuan. Actually I have read it about a dozen times, I cannot get enough of the natural beauty that earth has to offer. Everything from the vibrant red hibiscus, to the fragrant ginger root. All of these raw ingredients are used to create skin care products and also healthy delicious recipes that have so many benefits to the body. One simple recipe that was in the book is called Lulur. It basically consist of ingredients that you may have in your kitchen.
You will need 1 Tsp of Turmeric: As you know Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory and it works wonders to calm the skin.
1 Tsp of Rice Powder: Believe it or not it, it works by softening the skin and a mild exfoliation.
I like adding 1 tsp of Hibiscus powder as well, but you can omit if you like.
Instead of adding water, I like to add sandalwood hydrosol, or even Rose water.
Blend and use as a scrub all over your body.
