Drinking a delicious tea is one of my favorite things to drink, but it is also a good spice of tea tea. This thermal shrub boosts circulation, improves skin tone, and smells amazing!
Exfoliation: greater than the depth of skin
We hear it all the time, but why is it so helpful to explain? This is more than removing dead skin. Massage and exfoliation help speed up blood and lymphatic flow in the body.
Our blood provides nutrients and oxygen that cells need to stay healthy and repaired. At the same time, blood picks up toxic and waste products to expel the body.
Just as important, though less well known, is the lymphatic system. Unlike the blood that is pumped to the heart, our lymphatic system relies on movement of function. Brushing the lymph system helps in drying, healing and eliminating.
Why a Tea Sugar Cleaning?
Massage helps in lonely circulation, but hot spices in tea also promote it. Herbs like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger are heating up to help move circulation to the exterior of the body. There are other ways these spices benefit the skin.
According to the book, Herbal Medicine from the Heart of the EarthThere are benefits to skin with cinnamon. Cinnamon is a pond to harden knives and fight harmful bacteria and fungus. Even better, it is a free radical fighting antioxidant.
Gingerbread Gingerbread Tastes delicious in the taste of cookies or gourmet soothing ginger, but there are many other health benefits. Ginger is an antioxidant like cinnamon. It can also help to calm swelling and blood vessels closer to the skin for better circulation.
Cloves, nutmeg and cardamom … oh my!
Cloves help fight harmful bacteria and fungus. The nutmeg, a delicious spice that gives Eggan its classic flavor, has also been shown to be anti-bacterial and antiviral. Numerous studies have also found that cardamom and nutmeg (when eaten) can have cancer-prevention benefits (so go ahead and bring it down!)
Raw honey for the skin
Raw honey has been used for centuries for wound healing and skin health. It is naturally antimicrobial and antioxidant as well as full of polyphenols and flavonoids. I use raw honey to wash my face and it is just as helpful in cleansing sugar.
What you won’t find in this scrub …
While I love essential oils and use them in many of my scanner recipes, you won’t find any here. Why? Essential oils like cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom have certain benefits, but they are also tough on the skin.
Until this strong essential oil is mixed enough to safely rub on the body, there is no such aroma left. Ground spices work well here because they are not so quick and add to the cleansing process.

In a small mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir to combine.
Store in a covered container and avoid water in the container to prevent it from getting damaged.
Use freely all over the body. Heavy coconut oil or spice can irritate the delicate skin of the face. If you are not sure then test patch!
