Beauty Tips From Yoga Journal

I found this awesome beauty tip from my October 2010 issue of Yoga Journal. The Article name is "True Beauty" And it is written by Niika Quistgard.
"Brush your hair thoroughly and wash out any hair-care products. Then, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil (I suggest olive oil, you can choose what you have that is healthy and food grade) in a metal spoon over a flame or an aromatherapy diffuser. Your scalp is more sensitive than other areas of the body, so carefully test the oil temperature for safety ans comfort by trying a few drops on your inner arm.
Rub it In
Apply oil to the crown of your head, working downward and outward with your finger tips. Massage your scalp using a pinching motion, bringing the fingertips and thumbs together, then releasing. Move hands forward and back, then side to side, covering the entire head
Next, make small circles on the scalp with your finger tips, maintaining an even, enjoyable pressure as you work from the hairline back to the base of your skull. To finish the massage, rub your open palm in wide circles all over your scalp.
Take a Moment
Finger-comb the oil through your hair and leave on for 15 minutes as you relax. Gently shampoo with a mild cleanser, towel dry, then let your hair finish drying naturally. If you feel inspired, and ornaments or fresh flowers to it.

P.S. I just delighted myself with this recipe. While I waited for the oil to soak into to the scalp, I took a long Salt bath to add to the experience! ENJOY!
