I'm happy to welcome Kendra Thornton, Travel Industry Publicist and Spokeswoman, to my blog today:
During PregnancyAwareness Month I am continually reminded of the importance of staying healthy and stress free not only during pregnancy, but in all of the years throughout motherhood. Becoming a mother has been one of the biggest blessings and hardest jobs of my life. I want to be the best mom I can be to my amazing kids and that means taking time out to keep myself vibrant and full of life. With flowers budding and kids' sports in high gear, I find my family's days are a lot more full and active than they were a month ago. For me, that means making sure that I am as energized as possible ... and what better than a spa treatment to keep you refreshed and energized!
Honolulu has become a favorite vacation spot for my family. We stayed at one of the more popular hotels in Honolulu, the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort. After years of working in the travel industry, I had heard many positive reviews about the hotel’s spa: Na Ho'ola. I decided to try the Lomi Lomi Facial, which uses all natural ingredients, right from the island, that compliment my family's holistic lifestyle. Utilizing some of the natural fruits and ingredients used at Na Ho’ola, I have recreated this at home beauty treatment in the form of a body scrub.
Below is the recipe for the Mango Body Scrub:
1 Mango chopped
1/4 cup instant oats
1 cup of castor sugar
1 Tablespoon sweet almond oil
4 drops of orange essential oil
1 Tablespoon pineapple juice
Mix all ingredients in a bowl using a heavy spoon or fork, making sure to fully smash and incorporate the mango. You can use this scrub in the shower for an all over body experience or at the sink for a face and neck treatment. Make sure to refrigerate any leftover scrub in a tightly sealed container and to use the next time you want to exfoliate.
I love to use this scrub after a long day or in the morning to get me energized. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
