Body Scrub

By Warren Kramer

 

  • Activates circulation.

  • Promotes clean, clear skin; helps discharge fat accumulated under the skin; opens the pores to promote smooth and regular elimination of excess fats and toxins.

  • Energizes in the morning; relaxes at night.

  • Improves all aspects of physical, emotional, and mental health.

 

Scrub your body 1-2 times daily, morning and evening, outside the shower and bath.

 

  1. Dip a cotton hand towel into very hot water and wring it out well.

  2. Fold the towel over to make 2-4 layers and scrub your entire body including face, hands and feet, each finger and toe.

  3. Scrub in back and forth motion.

  4. To do a thorough scrub takes 10-15 minutes.

 

Note:

 

Eventually your skin will turn pinkish red. If your skin doesn't get red in the beginning, it will more and more over time as your skin condition improves.
