Winning! My Most Shocking Testimonies
When it comes to DIY and getting crafty, I'll try just about anything! And after over a decade of creating recipes, I've tried a lot of things. I'm very often impressed with how effective they worked as a beauty product or home remedy. But there are some recipes & tips that are stand out super stars!

Here are the DIY recipes, home remedies, & tips that shocked & impressed me most:

#1: Oil Pulling:

  • Oil pulling is basically using coconut oil as mouthwash, swishing for 5-20 minutes, and then spitting out.
  • Within a week of starting this habit:
    • my skin was clearer
    • I was less bloated
    • my teeth were less sensitive
  • Anytime I stop doing this for a bit and start it back up, I wonder why I ever quit! It makes such a difference in my skin, digestion, and teeth! 
  • BONUS: Keep these oil pulling chews in your fridge to make it super easy to be consistent!

  • Coconut oil is one of my favorite deep conditioners. But it's a pain to get out of my hair. I read that an egg wash gets it out. So I tried it. WOWZER! It worked! 
  • The egg wash cuts through the oil, clarifies my hair, and adds proteins & vitamins.
