Let’s Go Coconuts!

24 Feb
Mary Beth Janssen and Organic Spa Magazine, share with us the benefits of coconut oil!  Below is just a taste of the article, but take sometime to read the whole thing…  (click the link to read the full story)
Coconut oil is an extremely healthy saturated fat. Its principle fatty acid is lauric acid (also found in human breast milk), a medium chain saturated fatty acid or triglyceride (MCT) that has potent antiviral, antifungal, antipathogenic, and antimicrobial properties. Lauric acid powerfully strengthens the immune system. It optimizes our body’s absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, enhancing overall health. It can help assuage digestion-related problems, such as heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome. Why, it’s even used to treat AIDS and candida because of its antipathogenic effect in the gut.
And using Coconut oil on your skin?
Whether the drying depths of winter or the heat of the summer, coconut oil is one of the most soothing and cooling oils on the planet and can have dramatic rejuvenative effects on the skin. This oil works wonders as a deep moisturizer, emollient, and lubricant for all skin types, especially dry and aging skin. Use on facial skin, on hands and feet, but also certainly use for a full body self-massage.

Tootsie Time!

11 Feb

Our feet do so much for us, they get us around, they take the pressure off when standing in line at the grocery store, they allow us to be extra cute with a priceless pair of shoes… we could go on and on… This is why we think it’s time to show our pedes some appreciation.


Not only are there thousands of pores on our feet, they are also the largest on our bodies.   By using a scrub on them you can really help flush out the toxins in your body, not to mention it will make you feel rejuvenated from toe to head!

Using a YUM Scrub! (step #2), follow these simple directions for giving the perfect foot massage and treat your feet (or your loved one’s) on this Valentine’s Day weekend!
