Orange Ginger Massage Oil
Ginger is such a remarkable spice. It's chock-full or anti-oxidants, helping to even skin tone and improving elasticity.
Cinnamon has long been known for its skin plumping properties and the way it helps fight acne. Add the natural antibacterial and antioxidant properties of Cardamom and you've got an incredibly fragrant massage and bath oil that you'll make again and again.

4 Cardamoms, cracked open
1" piece of Cinnamon, broken into several small pieces.
