clean living / coconut oil

i have a pretty steady relationship with coconut oil 

there are so so so many amazing things about coconut oil. 
i made a list below.. and lets just say i have a bottle in every room. 

1. gets rid of diaper rash and makes butts soft
2. takes off eye make-up and also moisturizes under eyes (at the same damn time)
3. whitens teeth, kills bad breath, gets rid of toxins (oil pulling)
4. makes an extremely moisturizing "shaving cream"
5. lip balm for dry / cracked lips
6. cook / bake with it (popcorn, smoothies, on toast, grease pan)
7. helps with stretch mark shrinking / fading
8. makes a great massage oil
9. use as body moisturizer (put on right after shower)
10. mix with aloe for after sun care
11. use to helps heal wounds (put on cuts and scabs)
12. lavender sugar scrub

lavender sugar scrub:
(makes one- two uses)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil (somewhat melted / mushy)
1.5 tablespoons of sugar cane
2-4 drops of lavender essential oil 
lavender petals (optional)

i love this scrub.. especially if i've been on my feet all day. easy to make and can be stored in a jar for later use. also makes a great handmade gift!
