Baking soda

Why this is needed and how you are going to use it...

Baking power is an inexpensive item that has many uses. For healthcare purposes, you will primarily use if for cleansing, exfoliating, and bleaching.

  1. Sprinkle a dash in your hand and mix with water, until it is pasty. Rub this over your face at least once a day as if it was a cleaner. You will notice after the first use that your skin is refreshed, lightly exfoliated, and clean! Using this also helps reduce the appearance of large pores.
  2. 1-2 times a day, create a paste again and brush your teeth with it. You will notice whiter teeth by the third use. And who doesn't love a beautiful white smile?
  3. Use baking soda to remove chlorine from your hair after swimming in a pool.
  4. Use it as a mild exfoliater as you would on your face, just apply this same method to your legs, arms, elbows, knees and feet.
  5. Use it as a dry shampoo
  6. Scrub nails and toenails with it to clean, and whiten. Just apply to a scrub brush and gently scrub your nails. It also softens cuticles.

Organic Coconut Oil

There is just not enough good things to be said about Coconut Oil.

Why this is needed and what you should do with it...

  1. Apply Coconut oil to your face every night smoothing evenly on both your face and neck. This a fantastic nourishing night cream. It also naturally contains SPF 4. Within a week you will notice a more radiant glowing complexion, while reducing the signs of aging, wrinkles and lightening age spots.
  2. Use it on a cotton swab to remove heavy eye make-up in a flash and without tormenting your skin with heavy over-priced chemicals.
  3. Apply a heavy coat to your hair 1-2 times a week for an intensive hot oil treatment, leave on for 30 minutes then wash your hair as usual. You can warm it up if you like and pour it on your hair.
  4. Apply all over your body to sooth and soften dry skin, this is especially nice to rub into tired dry achey feet.
  5. Eat 2-3 tablespoons daily to improve metabolism, lose weight, and have more energy.

Something to exfoliate your entire body with

Naturally, the best thing(s) to exfoliate your skin with are sea salt, table salt, or sugar. All are abrasive enough to use daily, yet not harsh to the point of damaging your skin. Mix equal parts sugar or salt with coconut oil and use daily.

Or choose one of the options below and stick to it. This will include use on your face, and entire body on a DAILY basis.

  1. A mesh body poof
  2. A home-made salt or sugar scrub
  3. A pumice stone for dry feet, elbows, and knees
  4. An item specifically designed to remove dead skin cells (such as Le'Edge)

Coconut oil removes makeup like a dream! Try it. It's amazing. As for the baking soda for teeth...yeah...it's not that tasty, but if you can tolerated it even for using 1x a month, it helps keep teeth nice and white. :)
