You drink it and eat it, but did you know that California-grown citrus is an effective and popular ingredient for re-energizing the spirit?
It’s true, so with the arrival spring be sure to kick off your boots and let the vibrant colours, invigorating scents, refreshing taste and the soothing essential oils of oranges and lemons, give you a full sensory experience. To do this right, Sunkist along with Stillwater Spa Toronto, offer you two, do-it-yourself citrus-inspired spa treatments to quickly get your hands and feet ready for the sunshine seasons:
Lemon Hand Scrub:
In a bowl, mix two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and ½ cup of raw sugar. Then, soak your hands in a different bowl filled with very warm water filled and lemon slices for 10 minutes. After soaking, scrub the mixture all over your hands. To finish, remove the mixture using warm water and apply a heavy lotion to moisturize. Your hands will thank you.
Navel Orange Foot Scrub:
In a bowl, mix two tablespoons of freshly squeezed Navel orange juice and 1/2 cup of raw sugar. Then, soak your feet for 10 minutes in a tub filled with very warm water and Navel orange slices. After soaking, scrub the mixture all over your feet. Once complete, remove the mixture using warm water and apply a heavy lotion to moisturize.
