Oils

I am obsessed with oils! I have many in my home, such as castor, argon, coconut, avocado, aloe vera, mango, lavender, tea tree, peppermint and rosehip seed. I like making natural products such as deodorant, lip gloss and butters and I often use one of these oils as the main ingredient. I like how many uses each oil has, they’re so versatile!

My absolute favorite is Castor Oil. It has a thick molasses-like consistency that is perfect for coating natural hair and adding shine and life to dull lips. I recently learned that castor oil can help with menstrual cramps when applied topically. I am always amazed by how much and how far just a little bit of castor oil can go.

My second favorite oil is Coconut Oil. It’s accessible from nearly any supermarket or local store, which makes it extremely convenient to find. I use coconut oil primarily on my skin and hair and I find that it’s great for braid/twist-outs. I stopped using any type of cream on my hair, so I’m always in search of the perfect oil that will add or retain as much moisture as possible, and coconut fits the bill! The key is to not use too much, otherwise, expect your soul to glow all over the place (Coming to America reference).

. . . but the most convenient store of them all is Amazon, so I can easily and quickly have all my oils delivered to my door in just two days. Check out the links below to some my favorite oils using Amazon.

  1. My fav is oil of oregano! It’s super strong and takes getting used to but it’s great for getting rid of and fighting of unwanted bacteria.
