It might come to you as a surprise that citrus fruits are at their best in the winter; the darkest season of the year is when citrus fruits are at their peak. And this, of course, is perfect during cold season as we could all use some extra vitamin C, not to mention the summery colors of lemons, oranges and tangerines.
We were happy to learn all this last week when Sunkist invited us to make DIY Body Scrubs at their influencer event at Tasting Table Kitchen. We had such a fun night learning more about various citrus fruits, all carefully handpicked on Sunkist family farms in California and Arizona. We got to taste some amazing citrus flavored dishes and cocktails, and see live cooking demos from amazing chefs.
Our DIY beauty station included making body scrubs with citrus essential oils. With the help of our JamMaster Lauren, a certified holistic health coach, we were showing people how to make a lush body scrub from scratch to treat and nourish winter skin and what are the health benefits of citrus essential olis, and fyi, there are a lot from mood enhancing to cleansing. what the health benefits of citrus essential oils are, and fyi, there are a lot ranging from mood enhancing to clensing.
If you'd want to learn more about essential oils, make sure to sign up for our Essential Oils and Body Scrubs CraftJam. This workshop is meant to treat your mind, body, and spirit as Lauren will give you a tour on natural body care and self love.
