Quotable Quotes and Notable Notes
My first experiment with essential oils was to mix some oils for my husband's achy back. I had read about essential oils & wanted to put what I was reading to use. I found several formulas for back pain & then decided to try my own recipe, using the oils I already had. I mixed 5 drops of eucalyptus oil & 5 drops of peppermint oil, diluted in 1 Tbsp. of almond oil. The good news is that my husband, who is not fond of strong smells, didn't mind by bettie

Super Silky Summer Legs Next time you are feeling down, about to binge, going on a date, or just need to pamper yourself, do this. I just did it and I can not stop rubbing my legs together. It feels like I paid for that over expensive pedicure at the salon. Ingredients 1 1/4 C Sugar (Yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar) 1/2 C Oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil) 3 tablespoons Citrus (Lime or lemon) 1-2 by jallamon

Homemade Coconut Salt Scrub    Just mix your Course Sea Salt or Sugar with your Oils at a 2:1 ratio.  For example I mixed 1 cup Salt with 1/4 cup Coconut Oil and 1/4 cup Vitamin E Oil.  If you are only using one oil mix 1/2 cup Oil with 1 cup Salt.  Then add 3-4 drops of Essential Oil for fragrance and stir it up. by jallamon

Coconut milk pancakes: WINNER! I can't get over how fluffy and good these are! I have just found my new go to pancake recipe. I mean this is dangerously good! I did canned full fat organic (Native Forest) coconut milk (DONT use the crap in the carton!) and changed the yucky canola oil in the recipe out for coconut oil. I fried the pancakes in coconut oil too and the result was heavenly. -Brittany by emily
