When Lulu decided to open her store she didn't have a lot of money. She bought her products from US based herbal companies and spent it on great herbs, essential oils, base products, and accessories. "Mom you have to be careful where you get your herbal products. In the US they can certify them as organic and lab test the plants for heavy metals , micafungins, and toxins". She had me at micafungins (I am a nurse)!
She didn't have money for marketing or getting professional pictures. Yes, I helped her a little with money but she did all of the work. I'm not rich, marketing and advertising is very expensive. So Lulu set out to do farmers markets and Facebook. She is hard working and can make money stretch only like my own mother could.
Our pictures won't be professionally done, for now. I am a nurse, she is an herbalist, certified in Culinary Arts, and Nurtition. Simply put, the products will look real pretty but you will just have to pay more to absorb the cost. Her grandparents and parents worked hard. She went to work at sixteen and understands the value of every dollar. I think she made me the proudest when a customer told her she could charge a lot more for her products. Her response was" I want everyone to be able to afford my products".
OK, back to Calming Rose Bath Salts Scrub. The picture was taken by us. Big savings to you! The products from very well respected US herbal growers. Yes the organic ingredients are certified. We use the products. I want the best quality products for me.
Lulu calls it Calming Rose Bath Salts Scrub. Scrubs in general are just that. They "scrub" your skin. They fancy word is exfoliate. Exfoliation removes the dead outer layer of your skin. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production and can improve your skin tone and texture. When you add herbs and essentials oils, you get the benefit of the oil or herb. Weekly exfoliation may make your skin feel softer and smoother. It is also thought to increase circulation and may give your skin a more youthful look. Now, we are not miracle workers. If you are my age, let's just say over 50, you are not going to look 20.
By keeping moisture out and an air tight seal on your scrubs, they can last up to 6 months. There are no artificial preservatives in Lulu's Scrubs. Her ingredients: Himalayan Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Rose Petals, and Rose Essential Oil. That's it.
Salt scrub vs sugar scrub? Salt scrubs are more abrasive in a sense. So if you want to really exfoliate salt is a good one. It may be too much for some skin types. It can remove dirt and bacteria from your skin. I have read it detoxifies your skin. Well it's not the detoxification I think of as a nurse. Skin detoxification refers to removing dirt, skin cells, pollutants, makeup, and oils. It may help unclog pores as well.
Pamper yourself and enjoy a good scrub. I love the calming scent of Rose and enjoy a good bath. Some prefer a shower. Pampering yourself can help improve your mood, decrease stress, and just make you feel better.
