Lotion/Coconut Oil



I just read about a great alternative to lotion!

Coconut oil!

These are the ways I have heard you can use it.  (note: below are not my original ideas; a friend's of a friend that were too cool not to spread around)

You can use it straight and whip it up and lather it right on (great for a prego belly), or melt it a bit and combine some other great things...like  Shea Butter  and Cocoa Butter.  Add a little extra virgin olive oil and stick it in the fridge until it becomes solid, and then have at it!  Your new lotion with lots of natural goodness :-)
