Announcing Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Traders at Addoway.com

Built on the solid ground of quality products and services, our impeccable reputation of transparency and integrity, and a passionate desire for a better future, Oshun Spirit announces a new marketplace on Addoway.com, Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Traders. As part of the Alternative Market Movement, our goal is to encourage individual awareness, and individual action by forming and participating in viable trade networks which provide alternatives from the diseased global economy currently in place.
In a world dominated for decades by flat currencies and debt, in a world where private trade has become a novelty rather than a mainstay of local commerce, participating in a barter organization today is not just an act of self preservation in the face of a crumbling mainstream economy, it is indeed an act of awareness.
Through barter, you are stating loudly and with clarity that you will act to abolish the corrupt financial labyrinth which is causing many people great suffering. You will no longer participate blindly in its trappings. By participating in your own system, you declare the intention of independence, and this is a very powerful way of being which contributes to sustainabilty, the conservation of natural resources, and fair trade.
Here at Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Traders, we're willing to TRADE goods and services, through the old fashioned barter system to that end. Even if your money-currency is running a little slow, we know that you've got lots of energy and ideas... so make an offer. Together we can transform the flow of goods and services beyond commerce-as-usual, and be the change we wish to see in our world. Just click the "make a deal" button on the listing and tell us your thoughts. If you love fiverr, and listia, you'll adore Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Traders!
You can use addobucks, goods, services, and cash in creative combinations to make your purchases at Oshun Spirit Earth Friendly Traders. The addoway platform also allows us to give a discount for "liking" items and our Facebook fan page, http://www.facebook.com/oshunspiritstore. So the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. We knew you'd like the idea!
We are currently interested in (but not limited to) handblown and recycled glass items, upcyled handcrafts, social media services including a new landing page on Facebook, and packing and shipping materials. What can we do for you?
In love and Peace,
Susan Berry

Make a Bokek Salt Glow Scrub at Home

Bokek Salt Glow is a treatment done at many salons and spas that helps exfoliate the skin on the entire body. A salt glow treatment has many benefits. In addition to being an excellent way to maintain the health and wellness of the skin, a salt glow treatment also helps individuals with certain medical conditions.

The soothing miracle-working waters of the Dead Sea have a reputation that dates back over 2000 years. Physicians now recommend Dead Sea Salt (Bokek) to relieve the symptoms of dry skin disorders such as Psoriasis and Eczema, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, and joint and muscle pain.

Prior to a salt glow treatment, take a short shower to moisten the body. Wetting of the skin is important to prevent irritation caused by friction. After the skin is slightly wet, apply a salt glow mixture and gently rub on the skin to facilitate exfoliation. After the mixture is rubbed onto the entire body, take a very hot shower to remove all the salt from the skin. Please note: A salt glow treatment should not be given to anyone with an open cut, sore or abrasion, and should not be used if an individual has recently shaved. 

Mixed with true lavender essential oil it is also a great sleep inducer, salt is vital for sleep regulation because it is a natural hypnotic. Bringing the Dead Sea’s properties right into the bathtub for relaxation and relief, the widely reputed soothing effects of the Dead Sea can now be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home. Now every bathtub, hot tub, Jacuzzi and whirlpool can be a private spa, with the therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea minerals, whenever anyone anywhere wants relief or relaxation.
Organic Bokek Dead Sea Salts are the most therapeutic of bath salts. With a sodium content of less than 40%, it is gentle on the skin. Natural skin softeners and muscle relaxers make this salt unique. For a deep therapy bath, use 2-3 lbs. of salt in a regular size bathtub. Soak 20-30minutes. Be sure to drink lots of water as the detoxification process will pull moisture from your body as it eliminates toxins. This should be done once or twice a month. For every day baths, one to two cups of salt is plenty. Mixed with therapeutic oils you can create wonderful synergistic blends.  

Salt Glow
1 cup Bokek Dead Sea Salt Crushed/Fine
4 oz Grapeseed Oil (½ cup)
2 oz Avocado Oil (¼ cup)
1 T Vitamin E Oil 20-30 drops Essential Oil Blend

Essential Oil Blends
Cleansing: ¾ oz Grapefruit and ¼ oz Eucalyptus
Soothing  and  Relaxing: ½ oz Lavender and ½ oz Bergamot
Uplifting: ¼ oz Lemongrass and ¾ oz Lime
Energizing: ¼ oz Rosemary and ¾ oz Spearmint
Cold Relief: ¼ oz Eucalyptus, ¾ oz Lavender and 6 drops Tea Tree

Pour oils mixture into storage jar. Jar should be glass or PET and have an air tight seal. Slowly add salt and mix well. Salt Glow should be stored in cool dark place to maximize shelf life. Adding a drop or two of Rosemary Essential Oil will help to preserve your scrubs. Be sure to store your salts in an air tight container to avoid clumping.

Our skin is amazingly complex and, by weight, the largest organ of the body. It covers some 22 square feet and weighs around nine pounds (roughly 7% of body weight). Its integumentary system provides the front line of defense for the body, as well as being expressive of physiological conditions and emotional states. Skin is the extension of our nervous system to the outside of the body. It is involved in processes of exchange between the internal and external environments respiration, absorption and elimination. It’s no wonder that the uses of bath salts, with their unique balance of minerals, are so beneficial to our health and state of mind.
