160 Uses For Coconut Oil

@Mrs. S Thanks for your questions! I love to share my knowledge on this amazing product. For dandruff, I like to soften the coconut oil (if it is solid to the core due to cold weather) theen rub it into my scalp, leaving it on for about 30 minutes. I then wash with 1/4 of baking soda mixed with 1 1/2 cups of warm water and 3 drops of grapefruit essential oil. If your hair still feels a little greasy after, do another baking soda scrub and really work it into your scalp. For internal use I prefer to use the highest quality coconut oil – unrefined virgin coconut oil. For acne, I suggest the following:Before getting in the shower, apply a thin layer of coconut oil all over the face. Good luck!

Homesteading Archives - Homestead Honey When the sun sets at 5pm, and you don’t have electricity to light the house, there is not much else to do in the evenings but read. While I have always been a huge lover of books and reading, I don’t think have ever read as many books as I have this winter (well, perhaps when I had nursing newborns!) Over the past few months, I’ve excitedly poured through Waldorf Education curricula, zipped through a few novels, listened to several children’s novels that Brian has read aloud to Ella, and mostly, read many, many homesteading books. While I have homesteaded over a decade, there is really no end to the learning that I will do. There is always a new skill to learn, always an interesting approach to a homestead problem, always new sources of inspiration. And that is exactly what I’d like to share with you today – books for homestead inspiration.
