surprise benefit....

Most of you know I have been using Essential Oils for a year now...
...and that I love them.

Well, I just found a surprise, bonus benefit. :)

Back in August, I started using coconut oil as my face cleanser and moisturizer.  Yep, just raw coconut oil.  

At night, I put coconut oil all over my face and then use a warm wash cloth to remove it.  It completely takes off ALL makeup!!

Then I put a very small amount of coconut oil (a little goes a LONG way) in my hand and mix it with  ONE drop of Sacred Frankincense essential oil.  I apply this to my face before going to bed.

The next morning, I again wipe my face with a warm wash cloth and apply a small amount of coconut oil before I apply my make-up.

Honestly, my skin has never looked  or felt better!!!
And blemishes that I have struggled with are gone!

But I realized the surprise benefit while putting on my make-up this morning.

I have always had fairly long eyelashes.  However, in the last couple of years, they just don't seem as full or as long.  Also, I seemed to have lost most of my lower eyelashes.  They just aren't there. I had chalked it up to "age"....like everything else.  :/

But, when putting on my mascara this morning I realized that my eyelashes were SO long and my lower eyelashes had grown back in!!!!  

I tried to get a real close up, but this is the best I could do...and I don't have a before picture so you will just have to trust me.  I really wasn't looking for this benefit.  

Can you see my lower lashes?!!!  And look how long my upper lashes are!

The ONLY thing I have done differently is the coconut oil and the frankincense.

Seriously, y'all, I almost did a happy dance in the bathroom this morning!!  
Things around here have been a bit tough lately so this little thing made me very happy! I guess it doesn't take much these days...

I had heard for a long time about using coconut oil on your face and I love it..... your other benefit is it is so much less expensive than regular cleansers and moisturizers. An $8 bottle of coconut oil will last me 4 months and I use it all over, not just on my face.  The Frankincense is a little pricier but you only use 1 drop so it lasts a long time too.

Love it!

If you haven't heard about Essential Oils and want to know more, just email me!!  I would love to talk to you about them!

I'll have to start using this. I have both. I am just now getting used to diffusing and topically using the oils so my skincare will be next. Thanks for the tip.

I am so afraid the coconut oil would make my face break out so bad... but I'm intrigued by it. I want pretty lashes & skin too :)
