Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is extremely moisturizing for the skin because it increases hydration and reduces water loss. Coconut oil also contains Lauric acid which is particularly good at killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi. I hope that you don’t have fungus on your body, 😉 but if you do, use some coconut oil! Here is a list of other great uses for Coconut Oil.
Epsom Salt. Epsom salt is naturally forming mineral composed of magnesium and sulfate. Magnesium and sulfates have numerous health benefits, easy to find and affordable. Soaking in a bath with Epsom salt will replenish magnesium, relieve pain and muscle cramps, and relieve constipation.
Essential Oils. Essentials oils are created by extracting the oils from plants, trees and shrubs. Plants and trees contain medicinal properties and when the oil is extracted, the medicinal properties can be used externally to assist in healing the body. Synthetic oils are labeled as “fragrance” oils and you want to stay away from those. There are many quality oils on the market. Rocky Mountain Essential oils are good quality at a reasonable price.
Jojoba Oil. Jojoba oil is a liquid wax extracted from the nut of an indigenous American shrub. Jojoba oil is unique in that it closely resembles sebum, a waxy substance produced by our skin glands, so it can act as a natural skin conditioner.
Vitamin E Oil. A nutrient for your skin, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals. Free radicals form due to environmental exposures such as pollution and ultraviolet radiation, which damage cells and might contribute to cardiovascular disease and cancer.
