Essential Oils

Beauty Oils are on everyone's radar these days with companies left and right coming out with oils to take the place of older products.

But what about using the oils you already have?

Health benefits include glowing skin, shiny and soft hair, bright eyes and soft lips!!

Coconut Oil is an amazing substitute for other cooking oils if you're looking for a healthier option, but it's also fabulous for other things like moisturizing, creating a base for homemade scrubs (with other ingredients like brown sugar or oatmeal) and for nourishing your hair.

Olive Oil is not just for cooking with anymore. One of only three oils with a molecular structure small enough to penetrate hair shafts, olive oil is amazing for hair health. It also makes a great eye makeup remover. Take a bit of olive oil in your fingertips or on a cotton pad and rub it around your eyes. Your eye makeup will start to clump off and the rest of the mess can be wiped off with a wet cotton pad or tissue.

Tea Tree Oil is your best friend if blocked pores, acne and irritation are your enemies. Dab a little bit of tea tree oil on a blemish and watch it disappear and dry up overnight.

Avocado Oil is a lot like Olive Oil -- rich in nutrients. This oil is incredible for moisturizing and nourishing skin and hair. Rub some into your cuticles to promote healthy nail growth too!

So the next time you find yourself craving the next beauty trend, try hitting up your kitchen first!
