Well, it’s better late than never but I’m finally joining the coconut oil craze! I’ve been hearing about coconut oil for a while but I just recently tried it. Let me just say, this stuff is amazing! (I’m not sure if this is a great brand, but it’s what I found at my grocery store.)
Coconut Oil can be used for everything. Here’s a short list of things coconut oil is good for:
- Bug bites
- Use as a sunscreen (normally you wouldn’t put oil on but coconut oil is different)
- Diaper rash ointment
- Moisturizer (face and body)
- Makeup remover
- Hair conditioner
- Leather cleaner
- Furniture polish
- Use it in foods
- and the list goes on!
Today I wanted to share a quick and easy body scrub using coconut oil. You’re skin will feel amazing after using this.
You only need 2 ingredients:
1 cup coconut oil (I now use Nutiva Organic coconut oil)
3/4 cup sugar (you can use whatever sugar you have. Cane sugar, white sugar, etc.)
Other things that you can add are a few drops of vitamin E oil, almond oil, any essential oil you have that smells good can be added. I had some lavender oil that we use in our hot tub. I put a few drops in my scrub and it smells great!
I don’t use a body scrub everyday but usually around once a week. It helps remove all those dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling smooth.
Have you tried coconut oil? If you do, I’d love to hear how you use coconut oil?
Beauty For the Heart~~Do you ever compare yourself to other people? I think as women we struggle with this. We like to use the “if only”. If only I was skinnier, if only I was younger, if only I had more money, if only, if only, if only……..
Let me remind you of Psalm 139:13-14,“For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.”
Your are wonderfully made by God himself! Don’t get hung up on the “if only”. Remember that our true beauty comes from within!
Have a blessed day!
