Lately I have been experimenting with natural ingredients and food recipes at home. I have been so elated with the outcome that I decided to share them with you. Before I get into my healthy creations that I have made at home, I would like to add that, being healthy starts are home; when we model healthy life styles, our children will follow in our foot steps.Moreover, be sure to involve your children in your decision to live a healthy lifestyle!
So let’s take a look at my healthy creations.
Scented Coconut Body Oil
I’ve always wanted to make my very own body oil and could not figure out how to do it. Recently, I was at my health consultant’s home and I noticed that she made her very own body butter. She did not share the recipe with me, however, I tried to experiment with some ingredients in my kitchen and this is what I used to make my very own body oil:
1. I added 2 tablespoons of Refined Organic Coconut oil to a small bowl
2. I turned on the hot water and placed the bowl under the running hot water until the oil was in liquid form
3. Then added some orange organic aromatherapy oil to the coconut oil and applied to my skin
My skin felt so soft and I could smell the fresh scent of the orange aromatherapy oil through out the day. It was a great feeling to know that the oil that I used on my skin were organic and contained no harmful ingredients.
