Where we found it: Rock pools .. Mooloolaba
So I was sitting in the rock pools at Mooloolaba…
Not really the sort of place where you might get the inspiration for a new massage..
but i was eating one of the first of the seasons mangos..
and it crossed my mind “this would make an awesome massage” … followed by .. “why not!”
In Hoi An in Vietnam I had pulped mango used as a facemask and knew that it had great properties for the skin, but didn’t know how mango oil would work.
So thanks to Google I found a great supplier who specialises in extracting oil from the mango seed. Waiting impatiently it finally arrived in the post and I fell in love. Rich, buttery to the feel it is perfect to use when mixed with our other massage oils. Plus it is packed full of nutrients to really feed the skin.
So our mango massage package was born… lush full body massage with mango oil with a mango scent, mango exfoliation with walnut shell, green clay face mask, hot steamed towels, foot soak. We also talked Carol our candle maker to come up with a pineapple and mango handmade candles that we package that into a free gift box with some of the mango oil and a mango lotion we make here for everyone who books one of these massages with us.
Mango overload? Is there any such thing?
So next time you see me sitting at the beach, don’t think I’m relaxing … I may just be working hard to come up with another unique style of massage to spoil you all.
Mango massages are a popular new body treatment in day spas. It is no wonder that people are loving them so much given the amazing benefits mangoes can have for your skin, hair and overall health. Because I know you’ll be as excited about mangoes as we here are at Ripple, here are the incredible benefits of mangoes you can get from a mango massage or other mango spa treatments!
- Reduce the appearance of dark spots
Mangoes can provide the perfect natural glow for your skin. The vitamin A and beta-carotene content found in the fruit when applied to the skin can restore and rejuvenate. This adds shine and reduces dark spots on the skin. To test out mango’s ability to change the appearance of dark spots, you can try drying out mango skin in the sun. Once dried, crush it into a powder and mix it with a teaspoon of natural yoghurt. This mango skin mixture can be used as an exfoliating facemask to reduce dark spots.
- Remove blackheads
Blackheads are a hard one; there are so many products that claim to remove the pesky black spots but few seem really do the trick. Mango, however, does a really good job of getting rid of blackheads when used continuously over time as a scrub. To prepare mango as a scrub, scoop out a teaspoon of the mango’s pulp. Add this to honey and few drops of milk. Rub this scrub in a circular motion over your face to exfoliate. This will remove dead skin and other dirt clogging your pores that create the blackheads. Removing blackheads will add an extra special glow to your face.
- Clear blemishes and acne
The juice of a mango is a wonderful, natural astringent. This means that mango juice is able to clean skin and constrict pores. By doing so, dirt is removed from pores and the pores are also made smaller to reduce blemishes and acne. To trial mango’s ability to clear acne and blemishes, there are two different methods. For acne, add raw mango to water and boil it. Then use this water directly on the acne once it has cooled. To tackle blemishes, make a cleanser by adding mango pulp and juice to wheat flour. This will clean deep within your pores, leaving your skin smooth and blemish free.
- Reduce the effects of aging
Mango can reduce the effects of aging in many ways. Firstly, mango is full of antioxidants. This means that the fruit is able to delay signs of aging and skin pigmentation when it is applied directly to skin. Here it acts as a natural moisturiser, smoothing out dry skin and wrinkles. These antioxidants also help the regeneration of new cells and restoration of skin elasticity. In addition, mango is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Both of these vitamins promote the body’s production of collagen proteins, which slows the skins natural aging process. Overall, mango boosts the health of your skin, keeping it youthful and clear.
- Mango is great for hair too!
The benefits of mango go further than just for your skin. Mango can be used to both promote hair growth, and provide moisturised and nourished luscious hair. It is the large content of Vitamin E found in mangoes that can improve blood circulation in the scalp and enhance the oxygen intake of hair follicles. This helps encourage the growth of healthy hair. Furthermore, mango can moisturise hair just like it can moisturise skin. Due to the fatty acids, vitamins and minerals found in mango that are great for hair health, you can mix mango juice and olive oil to create an easy hair mask. Apply the mixture to wet hair and leave in for 20 minutes for shiny, manageable hair that is nourished and smooth. This is also known to prevent hair less and premature greys!
I bet after reading this you are just as excited to experiment with mango for your skin and hair as we are at Ripple. The numerous vitamins, minerals and other wonderful compounds found in mangoes are amazing for a healthy, happy body. You can maximise all these benefits we have discussed by eating mangoes too! Next time you stop off at the fruit and veg market, be sure not to forget the mangoes.
