Wasabi. Yes, you read correctly! This potent plant commonly found next to your rainbow roll can be used on your skin (lightly). Wasabi increases circulation and promotes oxygenation of the cellular tissue. Here is how you can use it from our friends at TLC:
Wasabi Massage Oil: Combine ¼ cup vegetable oil and ¼ cup light sesame oil in a small saucepan. Heat on low for 2 to 3 minutes or until warm but NOT boiling or smoking. Immediately remove from heat and stir in ½ tsp wasabi paste. Be sure to use a wooden spoon since plastic can leach out chemicals. Cover and let cool for at least 1 hour. Add 5 drops of vitamin E oil (you can pop a vitamin oil pill if you have one) and still until mixed in. Massage!
At A Spa: Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas stimulates their guests with the Wonderful Wasabi & Green Tea Facial. You can even have your body wrapped in the stimulating spice in Las Vegas at Treasure Island with their Wasabi Ginger Wrap.
Buy It: Take your wasabi therapy to go with Lather's Wasabi Hand Washes (you can even find the Lemongrass Wasabi Hand Wash on board Delta Air Lines flights). Naturopathica Green Tea Wasabi Mask helps to detoxify the face.
