Peppermint is a familiar smell for most and its uses are varied and many. It is excellent for mental fatigue, aids in stimulating mental agility and improving concentration. It can help give relief for headaches, migraines and general respiratory disorders. The oil produces a cooling effect and is known to be effective in treating bruises, sore joints and muscle strains.
Cucumber oil is very high in several types of Vitamin E. The oil contains high levels of phytosterols, which help the skin to strengthen its lipid barrier and restores natural moisture balance. This balance is essential is smoothing the skin, and improving skin elasticity. Phytosterols are also known for their ability to nourish and stimulate skin cells and to encourage the regeneration of healthy cells.
Shea butter is a skin superfood. The 'butter' is extracted (pressed) from the Shea nut (Karite) tree seeds without the use of chemical solvents. Shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers a UV protection of SPF 6 and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production.
Praised for its ability to heal and nourish the skin, Jojoba oil is an ideal natural ingredient to add to our scrub collection. Jojoba carries natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and analgesic qualities, it is also rich in vitamins A, D, and E, minerals and proteins. This makes it an effective natural treatment for a variety of skin conditions.
Jojoba has long been known for its ability to treat and heal acne as it is structurally similar to our own natural sebum. It is thought that Jojoba 'tricks' the skin into believing that it has already produced enough sebum, and as a result, sebum production decreases. Over time, this reduction in sebum prevents further clogging of pores. Jojoba oil also reaches deep into the skin to destroy bacteria and dissolve dried sebum, whilst revitalising and soothing inflamed skin.
Apricot kernel oil is known to have extremely nourishing qualities and is easily absorbed into the skin, which makes it perfect for prematurely ageing skin. Its excellent moisturising and soothing qualities also work well to treat irritated or sensitive skin. The oil is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as the essential linoleic and oleic fatty acids.

It's best to armour up with your Honor Body Scrub in the shower. Use a handful of the scrub and apply to damp skin in circular motions, massaging as you go. For best results leave scrub to dry for 5 - 10 minutes before rinsing clean to give your skin time to absorb the goodness. The peppermint oil may irritate your eyes.
