Challenge: natural and safe body care products, coconut oil.
This week's challenge comes from Alicia. As you might know, Alicia is in the business of natural and safe body care products ... so she's concerned with the things we put on our skin (lotions, creams, lipsticks and make-up as well as deodorants, toothpaste, shampoos, conditioners, shaving cream and hair styling products). I love challenges which raise our awareness ... and this one ought to do it. Here' you go
Two of my sisters Eliza and Grace are very health conscious. They make their own cold pressed virgin coconut oil. They say the end product is very good. They gave me some of their hard work oil. During the weekends, when I am at home, I smear a little oil instead of putting on lipsticks. It soothes my lips.
Eliza even grow her own coconuts.
It is very tedious making the oil. My friend Tan, a scientist tells me it is good, and she gave me a bottle she bought from the health food store.
Unfortunately, it is winter when I came back, they have all solidified.I have to melt a little but dunking the bottle in some warm water.
