Coconut Oil in the Cold

When you think of coconut, you probably think about the tropics, but last weekend was the perfect time for using Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil because it was cold.

Saturday was our monthly “Ladies Night In” and with snow still on the ground, it was also a perfect time for each of us to test the Fractionated Coconut Oil. After using a little or a lot depending on the “ash level” on our hands, we all agreed that the Fabricated Coconut Oil was a non-greasy, fragrance free oil that definitely made a difference on our skin.

The Fractionated Coconut Oil can also be used as a massage oil, as a hair and scalp treatment, on your face or body as it does not clog pores or leave a greasy residue.  It is colorless, odorless and easily washes out of clothing and sheets.  This is a 100% Pure Base and Carrier Oil for Aromatherapy, Essential Oils, Massage Use and Therapeutic Recipes.

So if you are looking for a skin moisturizer that works well in the cold, go online today at and order a bottle of Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil, your hands will thank you – ours did!

Grandma’s Hands Pure Shea Butter

Hello friends,  I hope you are having a terrific day.  

Last week after watching those family videos I started thinking more about my grandmother.  I remember her looking at her hands and saying, “wow, my hands look so old“. When she’d say that, I would hold both of her hands in mine, give them each a kiss and say, “Mama, your hands are so beautiful”.  

Keeping her hands smooth and wrinkle free was always a major concern of hers and now it has become one of mine.  When I look at my hands I too see signs of aging, and although that isn’t a bad thing I do know how she felt.  

Shea Butter Review

Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter is a great treatment for minor burns, eczema, dark spots, discoloration, blemishes and dry skin which can make you look older.   Pregnant women and new mother’s can also use pure Shea Butter to treat stretch marks. Cleopatra’s Choice is a fair trade product produced by women subsistence farmers in Ghana, Africa.

Shea Butter Review

Because Shea Butter is good for preventing wrinkles and keeping your skin moisturized, I keep this container on the nightstand as a reminder to use on both my hands and feet before going to bed.

Shea Butter on the nightstand


There is no overpowering scent to this long lasting, deep absorbing Shea Butter and it will not clog my pores or leave my skin feeling greasy.  This winter I’ll probably use it on my elbows and knees before leaving the house in the mornings.  

Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter can be ordered from and it will be quickly shipped so that you can have it before the end of sandal season.
