'ILI - Ginger, Green Tea & Mint Salt Scrub

Ginger is medicine.
Indians and Chinese are believed to have grown ginger as a tonic root for its flavor and fortune for over 5000 years, understanding that Gingerol, as its medicinal substance can be ground and dried to give us its many gifts. With its ginger fragrance soothing the skin like it soothes the stomach, its exceptionally high dosage of Vitamin C and Silicon for healthy skin, hair, nails, and teeth - is one of the most important ‘warming’ herbs in the world. With its anti- bacterial - antifungal and natural antibiotic skills, it acts as an anti-inflammatory skin treatment for eczema and mild skin conditions. As it warms the body from the outside in, it is excellent in summer to increase sweating - so cooling down the body.
Native to Europe’s Mediterranean region Spearmint, with its menthol aroma similar to peppermint, offers a cooling sensation that has a calming effect on the skin as well as the digestive system. Known to reduce body temperature, relieve fatigue, fever and muscle pain in a mint bath this scrub offers a similar gift. Known to be used for skin conditions in Ayurvedic medicine, it is mild when used on the skin and considered a safe oil for children and people with sensitive skin.

Why should I use ‘Ili? As we age, our skin stops making new skin cells as quickly. Old skin cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin's surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below. Exfoliation also makes it easier for the vitamins, minerals, and nutraceutical - healthy foods and oils in our products to penetrate and nourish the skin.
For Normal Exfoliation: Lightly mist skin with water. Apply the scrub with circular motions. Allow sitting on the skin for one to two minutes. Rinse off and continue with your normal shower routine
