Citrus Turmeric Body Scrub
Citrus Season is almost over I can’t believe spring is just around the corner! I really love all things citrus, it’s just a really pleasant smell and of course eating citrus fruit is a wonderful way to get your vitamin C. I don’t know if you know this or not but citrus has a season to and it’s pretty much a winter fruit! That is why I talk about it so much in the winter and less and less in the spring and summer months. Growing up I always thought citrus fruit was seasonal to the summer months. The way I would see lemonade stands and lemon ice.
I just thought summer was the time for the citrus fruit to peek. Well as I got older and more into the natural community I realized that fruits have seasons and because I am in the states are season for citrus in winter. Just like our grapes and blueberries are summer fruits. Being that I am more of a seasonal eater these days I am looking forward to summer fruits!
When you add turmeric powder and an orange essential oil blend you get the best of both worlds! They complement each other so well and the spice is so nice. I truly enjoy using turmeric powder in any dish or skin care item I can since it’s such a great anti inflammatory. I really think turmeric is a great spice to use on the skin. Many of you have been asking me to do recipes using products that are common in the countries you live in. Please be specific on the ingredients, so I can cater recipes to your country! Thank you so much for the support everyone!
