“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand… once you are Real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”

Ooooo Oh Wow I have just discovered a delicious homemade Geranium Essential Oil Salt Bath Scrub. I was visiting a friend in Wales and to my HORROR she did not have a shower. How is this possible???? Well, I was forced to quiet my mind and bathe every morning. This was difficult for me at first (go go go GO personality) but I had no choice but to give in. What made it magic was not only the hot water relaxing my muscles (you might be wondering if I have EVER bathed before… and you might be right!) was my friends homemade Geranium Salt Scrub. I am now bathing just so I can scrub! I queried her for the recipe and googled around to see what others were doing. Here is what I came up with:
4 tablespoons Sea Salt (even table salt is fine)
4 tablespoons Epsom Salts (good for muscles!)
3 tablespoons Almond Oil
1 tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (gives it a nice buttery colour)
approximately 10-15 drops Geranium Essential Oil (depending on your preference)
Put in glass jar that you can seal and let settle for 30 mins.
I love it!! Time to soak & scrub.
