|"Mermaid and Scallop" by Mandarin Moon|
Here in Central PA warm ocean breezes are miles away, but a little coconut oil has me in a beach mood. My 40-year-old-skin is already feeling winter's wrath so I decided to treat myself to a little spa day. I melted a couple tablespoons of coconut oil and rubbed the warmed liquid onto my dry skin. It feels heavenly and smells like a day at the beach.
I read a good post by Katlupe of Homesteading on the Internet about coconuts that gave me the idea: Coconut is one of Nature's Healthiest Remedies.
