I was actually going to experiment mixing my coconut oil with other oils as my moisturizers- this just inspired me more

Homemade Natural Chest Rub : did you know the leading chest rub on the market contains petroleum and turpentine oil?! I don’t want to put that nasty chemical on me or my kids! This natural remedy uses coconut oil + eucalyptus, peppermint, & lemon Essential Oils.
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 the aroma at all & found the massage to be soothing!
My parents are obsessed! They keep bringing home more bananas for me to make this. I used coconut oil instead of butter and cut the amount of sugar in half. I also added some oatmeal the second tim e I made it. I have not even tried the frosting yet! It's delicious without :)
I actually learned a little bit about this stuff in my psychology class! It will definitely help on days that just aren't quite going your way!

Pinner Said:Every time I wear my hair up to work this is how I do it. Simple instructions, its not hard and looks awesome. Actually had a doctor ask me the other day if someone does my hair in the morning or if I taught my husband how to do it for me.

I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . CQJP 2013, BLOCKS 5-8- My focus is on traditional cq stitching this year. Seam treatments on antique blocks found in books, the Internet & other sources will be my guide & inspiration. I will experiment with various stitch combinations.

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.

I'm going to do this backward and save $52 the first week and go down from there so that I have more money in my account at the end of the year when I need it. Plus it will motivate me more to stick with it!
Absolutely, this is why I just don't care what anyone thinks of me or my family. We love each other & that is all that matters.
Words to live by
Coconut Oil Face Cleanser... Another pinner says "i do this every night, and my skin has cleared up in just one month! Also, it is making my eyelashes grow and thicken."
"If you ignore me, I won't wait around. I won't bug you, I just won't talk to you. Simple as that. Sure it's going to be hard. It's going to hurt. But it won't hurt as much as being ignored, because I deserve better than that. I'll move on and find someone who actually cared about me, since obviously you don't. If you continually treat me like crap, what reason do I have to stay?"
I didn't expect the ring to be as glossy, guessing from the picture, But I received it promptly in the mail 3 days later and it was beautiful, it honestly looked like i spent way more on it than I actually did. Good buy, my boyfriend is going to love it. $16.99

"Megan, over time we are going to breathe secrets for each other that no one else will ever hear. As your scented breath cascades down my neck, as your hands fist somewhat forcefully in my dark hair and as your greedy, but almost needy body arches to reach up for so much more of me, the suggestive whispering that I will breathe into your ear, the words you will hear, will take us into another dimension and we will then be able to explore the secrets of our pure delightful sin!" J.L. Thomas.
