20 reasons to keep coconut oil in your bathroom

coconut oil
1. Oil Pulling – Have you swished with coconut oil? Oil pulling is a traditional way to cleanse the mouth of bacteria. Start your day with oil pulling by swishing a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth. Try to swish for at least 10 minutes. If you can, swish up to 20 minutes.
2. Wash Your Face. It’s called oil cleansing and it’s amazing! It may sound strange but oil can actually help clean your face.
3. Shave Your Legs. That’s right! Coconut oil is a girl’s best friend when it comes to shaving. If you want baby soft legs, rub a small amount of coconut oil on your legs before shaving.
4. Hair Treatment – Coconut oil helps reduce protein loss when used as a pre or post treatment. Pre-treating your hair by adding a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the roots and work the oil down to the ends. Leave the coconut oil on for an hour before rinsing.
5. Skin moisturizer. Coconut oil is known to help reduce scaring, stretch marks and prevent sagging skin. It’s a natural “miracle” cream! Try my whipped coconut oil body butter here.
6. Rash and Burn Cream. Coconut oil helps to sooth rashes and burns. A small dab of coconut oil has always helped to reduce and even eliminate diaper rash.
7. Eye Makeup Remover. Another wonderful reason to have coconut oil on hand in the bathroom is for removing makeup! Wash your face and then use coconut oil to remove the remaining eye makeup.
8. Cuticle Treatment. Coconut oil does wonders for your nails! Massage your finger nails and toe nails with it as often as you like to help keep rugged cuticles tame. The anti-fungal properties of coconut oil are also helpful for keeping toes clear of fungal infections.
9. Frizz Tamer. Coconut oil is a go-to when you need to tame wild hair. Only use a small amount though. Too much coconut oil will leave your hair with an oily look.
10. To lighten age spots when rubbed directly on the skin.
11. To get rid of cradle cap on baby- just massage in to head, leave on for a few minutes and gently rinse with a warm wash cloth
12. Mixed with equal parts sugar for a smoothing body scrub (use in the shower)
13. Rubbed on lips as a natural chap stick
14. Use on feet to fight athlete’s foot or tor fungus
15. In place of Lanolin cream on nursing nipples to sooth irritation (also great for baby!)
16. As a natural personal lubricant that won’t disturb vaginal flora
17. When used consistently on skin it can help get rid of cellulite
18. Use as a natural deodorant
19. By itself or with baking soda as a naturally whitening toothpaste
20. Rub into elbows daily to help alleviate dry, flaky elbows



Mother skunks give birth to litters of two to ten young each year, usually in May. The babies follow their mothers around for several months, leaving in late July or early August.

so they say at nat’l geographic!  we have been fighting skunks for months and months.  they get into our fenced yard, spray my service dog THROUGH THE FENCE and are making my life miserable.  their spray causes asthma attacks and i have one now as i type because the smell just won’t go away.

we have used EVERY recommended remedy and still, my dogs smell.  not to mention 2 loads of towels that had to be washed in some strong stuff.  and now, the yard and plants still reek!  it was around 65 here in the bay area, so we had all our windows open.  yep…. you guessed it.  i now  live in skunkville. 

i found that the county of napa will send a skunk trapper (federally licensed)  to get rid of them for me.  i almost cried.  i had cancer surgery 6 weeks ago and this added stress and work is too much!  i cannot take a stinking service dog with me in public.  poor guy has been washed with tomato juice, a combination of baking soda, peroxide and dawn,  apple cider vinegar, shampoo.  he still stinks.  sigh.

oh and not to leave out anything from my psycho life, at the same time, something was scratching in the chimney pipe.  my poor husband found it…a bat!  with 2 dead ones. ew ew ew!  anyone want to buy a house up high on a mountain in the napa valley?  comes with it’s own wildlife lol.
