i now use sesame oil or almond oil in samll bit son my skin..
and use coconut oil as a face exfoliant
ie: i add a bit of unrefined Sea Salt
to oil to make a paste
then gently in circles rub my face with it/ lightly rinse with a herbal rinse like rosemary etc with warm not hot water then splash with plain cold water.
leaves your face butter smooth
as far as body/ hands
if you look at different lotions body or face moisturizers recipes on beauty tips forums in back pages there,
you will see how easy you can just add a bit of glycerin and water and a nice fragrance to your own body lotion.
i find this to be a great way to get the oil benefits,
but the water/ glycerin helps it sink in nice and fast leaving a non oily smooth skin in about 5 minutes. i like essential oil of geranium and rosewood as a few of my persoanl adds .
the alcohol helps preserve the lotion .
also so the oil mix does not go rancid
if you use essential oils remmeber a DROP goes a long way!!
they are highly concentrated.
best to you. 8)
