In March I shared my all natural silky leg recipe. It’s generated such a great response that it has prompted me to share some more of my kitchen beauty with you. Now, lord knows I love luxurious creams and treatments as much as any lady. However they are often A) way too pricey for me to indulge in regularly, B) full of chemicals and C) the result of cruel animal testing. So what’s an environmentally friendly, animal loving, wallet challenged glamour girl to do??
Head to the kitchen!

Today I will be sharing two great recipes with you and a couple basic tips. Don’t you fret, though, I have more up my sleeve for next time.
|3 simple ingredient body moisturizer|
I use this straight out of the shower all over my body. It’s worth mentioning that I have suffered from Ketosis Pilaris for my entire adult life and this is the ONLY thing that’s ever made a difference. One of the great thing about kitchen beauty is how simple everything is to make. All you need to do here is:
*Melt about 3 parts coconut oil (make sure is 100% pure organic) and 1 part olive oil together. Make sure not to get it too hot, just get it to a melting point.
*Add about one cap of apple cider vinegar (I find this helps keep a good texture when it cools)
*Remove from heat and whisk together for about 60 seconds
*Pour into your choice of container and let cool
**Add Kosher Salt and use in the shower for exfoliation, too!
***I’ve also just thrown it all in a food processor and whipped it up, too. I like this method better, but see what works for you.
I keep it on the ledge just outside from my shower so I remember to use it. Room temperature seems the ideal storing temperature anyway. I should mention that A.C.V. does have a pungent aroma. I don’t mind it; it dissipates quickly. However, should you find it offensive, you could play around with adding essential oils to mask it.
