I was recently given the opportunity to review Carrington Farms and let you know about the ways you can de-stress with coconut oil as the cause of your stress is when you have a bottle of your favorite beauty product empty and you wonder what to do well you can head to your kitchen and use coconut oil; With so many benefits beyond the kitchen, you'll definitely get your bang for your buck with Carrington Farms Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Paks. Each conveniently packaged single-serve Pak contains 1 tbsp of organic unrefined cold-pressed coconut oil the perfect amount to add to your morning coffee, smoothie or even popcorn. But what you will really love is the versatility of these Paks: if you run out of your favorite lotions, potions, mascaras and lipsticks, don't stress about running to the convenient store. Coconut oil provides a wealth of beauty benefits, as it can be used as a hair conditioner, natural moisturizer, teeth whitener and more. Carrington's pre-measured PAKS make adding coconut oil to your on-the-go health/nutrition or beauty regimen easier than ever. Available for $8.99 at local retailers and online at www.carringtonfarms.com. I was sent some to review and wanted to include a recipe using coconut oil it is
Homemade Coconut Oil Lip Balm
Double boiler (or saucepan and glass bowl)
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Beeswax
1 Teaspoon Red Palm Oil or Olive Oil. The red palm oil adds a little orange/red color to the lip balm while the olive oil leaves the lip balm a faint yellow color.
Heat coconut oil, beeswax and red palm oil or olive oil together in double boiler over low heat.
Melt oils and wax together.
Mix mixture well and pour into a storage container.
Let cool before using.
