I made a discovery several years ago and it has made a huge difference in my life. COCONUT OIL!!! Actually, a listener was kind enough to call the station and share with me the benefits of coconut oil after I was complaining about dry skin one afternoon. I started using it as a moisturizer and haven't bought lotion or face cream since. I was especially excited when I read that it helps with premature aging and degenerative diseases due to it's antioxident properties.
I then realized it had so many other uses that it became a staple in our home. We now cook with it, bake with it, saute with it, stir-fry with it..... I condition my hair with it, remove make-up with it, it's a great substitute for chapstick, soothing sunburn....and the list goes on and on. If you're not familiar with the benefits of coconut oil...google it once and I bet you'll be surprised.
