For those who like something a little stronger…..
4. DIY with one!
One of the things I love doing the most with coconut - is using coconut oil to make healthy chest rubs! Yes no more needing those petroleum-based chest rubs - make your own healthy safe one, at a fraction of the cost! Here is how!
- ½ cup virgin coconut oil
- 5 drops YL Eucalyptus Blue
- 5 drops YL Myrtle essential oil
- 5 drops YL RC EO blend
1. Whisk the oils into the coconut oil.
2. Transfer to a container.
3. Refrigerate and apply to the chest as necessary.
Enjoy World Coconut Day! I’d love to hear what you do to celebrate the coconut!
Note: I only use and recommend Young Living brand of essential oils. They have a Seed to Seal Quality Assurance program, and are the most transparent company I’ve ever seen. It is incredibly important to make sure you are using the purest essential oils possible in an unregulated industry, and I have never found any better than Young Living in 12 years I’ve been using them!
