Hemp raw sea salt scrub with roses

OK — so this product takes a minute to fall in love with, as the smell was rather intense. The scrub contains Epsom salt, raw sea salt, vitamin E, hemp oil, raw roses, and fragrance. The instructions are simple — add oil. It took a few variations of grapeseed oil (a preferred favorite for glowy skin) and essential oils. I strike out a few times as the fragrance included in the product was hard to complement. But then I hit the magic combination of lavender oil with a whisper of sandalwood. After mixing my ingredients with the ones from ADA East, I pop into the bath and got my loofa ready. Scrubs, for me, are best when scrubbed onto the skin and left to sit and soak for a the length of Guns 'N Roses "November Rain" (this is a great timer for most things — face masks, tea steeping, pregnancy tests, etc.) At any rate, after Slash's solo, I dip my scrubbed skin under water and am excited by how smooth it is. Though I think it was a bit of teamwork — my oils and their scrub — smooth skin is worth a bit of elbow grease.
