This one hardly counts as a recipe, as it only has one ingredient. But I’m gonna put it up here anyway, because it really works. While I have plans to spruce it up and give it more of a lotion-type texture, I’ve needed something in the mean time to moisturize my terribly dry, cracked hands and face this winter.
If you’ve made my toothpaste or deodorant recipes, you already have this on hand. Simply rub some coconut oil into your skin. It seems a little, well, oily at first (it is oil after all), but it will rub in if you give it some time. And it smells absolutely divine.
Again, it’s not the best texture, nor the easiest to scrape some out of the jar to rub in, but it does work. And it gives me something to use while I experiment with how to get a better texture. If I ever get something better worked out, rest assured I’ll post it here, but for now, try out just plain coconut oil.
