Essential Oils: Coconut Oil!

Product: Coconut Oil

We started using coconut oil in our household about a year ago. We replaced olive oil as our cooking oil of choice. I also use it for my homemade skin products. I even use it on the boys and dogs.

Essential Oils: Shea Butter

Product: Shea Butter

Shea butter is great. I have used it alone and mixed with other ingredients to make body butters and other products and it feels great. It makes your skin so soft and smooth. It smells okay (a little different) and doesn't leave greasy residue on your skin. It's great for dry skin and small abrasions.

Lavender essential oil is extremely versatile. if you use only one essential oil, this would be a great one to use. It has so many uses and is so good for you. It is also safe to use around babies and young children. It can even be used internally if you are careful.

Carrier Oils are an important part of using essential oils. The vast majority of the time, essential oils cannot be applied directly to the skin due to the risk of skin irritation because the oils are so concentrated.

Tea Tree Essential Oil

I'm relatively new to the world of essential oils, but once I started using them, I started swearing by them! I use them for about everything now. I am getting over a horrible allergy fit with a lot of coughing. I used a bunch of essential oils combined with cough syrup (the good stuff too, since Froot Loop stopped nursing) and it's nearly gone!
