Using Coconut Oil for DIY Body Care

For the love of skin health & coconut oil
DIY Body care recipes for every skin type.


You know I love coconut oil for so many reasons, I am crazy for coconut oil is an understatement. 

DIY body care:

Coconut oil is great for making DIY deodorant, DIY toothpaste & for DIY body care & hair care (& of course taking, oil pulling, cooking & baking but this post is about DIY body & skin care).

DIY Deodorant:

Body Butter:

  • 1 or so cups of solid coconut oilbody butter1
  • 1 tbsp of natural liquid oil of choice (Jojoba, castor, fractionated coconut, argan)
  • 5 to 20 drops of essential oil of choice like Lavender or Rosemary.
  • Mix as directed here
  • Apply to skin as you would creams & lotions, apply small amounts & rub into skin after bath or shower if going out in the sun or anytime needed. Very healing & has natural SPF. Hydrating to skin without toxins.

Facial scrub: 

  • You can simply use just epsom salt on wet face & work in & let sit till dry then wash off & rub in raw coconut oil,
  • I have also used the Epsom salt mixed with the coconut oil together on skin 3 parts epsom salt to 1 part coconut oil.
  • You can also try: Epsom salt with ground pink salt, Epsom salt with borax, epsom salt & baking soda, Epsom salt & honey, Epsom salt is awesome.

Face wash:

  • 1/4 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp castile soapcharcoal-honey-bowl
  • 1/2 to 3/4 tsp activated charcoal powder
  • 1 to 5 drops of essential oils of choice
  • Add 1/4 tsp raw honey
  • Mix together in small bowl, apply to slightly wet skin/face & rub like you would with soap, rinse off or let sit a few minutes & rinse off.
  • I mix right in my hand by adding to one palm then rubbing together.
  • I also like to wash skin, then apply warm/hot damp cloth, lay over skin, let sit about 30 seconds then use the wet washcloth to clean the wash off.

Vapor rub/Chest rub:
