We wake up, we wash up, we continue our daily routine without much fanfare. We go to our jobs, we come home, we cook dinner, we manage our homes, we go to sleep and do it all over again. Is this really living…have you really stopped to remember the dreams that you had for your life..have you stopped to smell the flowers or to gaze at the stars and the beautiful moon. Don’t forget that living is so much more than a daily job and bi-weekly paycheck. Its more than bills and drama. Life is to be lived, moment to moment. Breath to Breath, Heartbeat to Heartbeat. Take time to enjoy the little things in life to make your life really meaningful. Make memories, laugh, smile, perform random acts of kindness !! When in Rome we do as the Romans do (Bills,money,etc) but don’t let the wordly things take you away from the true Soul Spirit that you are.
I absolutely love coconut oil, so when i found a recipe that incorporates that into a body wash I was so excited !! It’s a process to make it, but it’s not really that hard. The end result is a phenomenally hydrating wash, that will leave you fresh and glowing. I use glycerin a lot in my DIY so it’s a great product to have on hand at all times. Check out this easy recipe:
1 bar of soap (Dr Bronner’s Castile is great)
1/2 tbsp glycerin
4 cups water
1/2 cup pure coconut oil
Grate your soap of choice with a cheese grater
Put your grated soap in a large pot with the water,coconut oil and glycerin
Heat on medium heat until all of the soap is dissolved
When the soap is dissolved the water will look like murky dish water
Turn the heat off and cover overnight to set
When you return to your soap it will be very thick and jelly like, use a mixer or wisk to mix the soap to a smooth consistency
You can add up to two cups of water to get it to the consistency you like ( I added one extra cup of water for my liking)
You can then leave the soap for another 12 hours to ensure it is the right thickness
Use a funnel to put the body wash in an appropriate container (It makes a lot so you may need one container to store it and one to use in the bathroom )
This body wash does not lather like regular body wash because we have taken out the harsh sudsing agents but it still works well and it is healthy and great for your skin !!
