Coconut oil is used in the French Islands so I used it growing up. I used the Monoi version with gardenia flowers in it. But you can actually buy coconut oil and make your own scents. My favorites homemade ones are Lavender, rose for the body and face as they are calming. I love vanilla in summer and in the sun.
The list of the many ways I use coconut oil:
-In my hair after the shower, it protects and makes my hair shiny and healthy.
-As a end repair solution on your hair.
-I use waterproof eye liner and a little bit of coconut oil will remove it like magic. Great makeup remover.
-A tablespoon in the bath water.
-As emergency diaper rash ointment.
-On my hands and body.
-In the sun it keeps your hair protected and your skin nourished. -Great to protect your hair from chlorine in the pool.
-Great for cooking. replace oil or butter by coconut oil
Coconut lavender oil
Small glass jars. I got mine for $4 at walmart for a set of 4
1/2 cup Organic coconut oil
1 drop Lavender organic essential extract oil.
Stems of Lavender.
In a bowl add 1 drop of lavender oil to 1/2 cup coconut oil and stir well, fill your jar. Add a small stem of lavender to the side.
Because this oil is used on the face only one drop of lavender is sufficient, for body and bath, you can use 2 or 3 drops.
Side note: Use rose organic essential extract oil and a vanilla bean for the other versions.
I love tags with gifts so I made this printable tag of coconut lavender oil pic in case you want to give it away as a gift at a party or for your friends. This is great for VT also (little gifts when visiting teaching a friend for church ). Just click copy and paste. Print it and make a hole with a puncher. Tie it with a ribbon or twine.
