Coconut oil and flower hair oil treatment:

(This will need to be prepared the night before you plan to use it)

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh flower petals
  • 2 tablespoons rose water

Directions:

  1. Bring the 1/2 cup of coconut oil to a boil in a small pan
  2. Add the rose water
  3. Add the fresh flower petals of your choice
  4. Let return to a boil for three minutes
  5. Let the flowers steep in the oil overnight
  6. In the morning, strain the oil through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into an airtight container
  7. When ready to oil your hair, rub a few tablespoons in your hair and wrap tight in a towel
  8. Let sit for about 20 minutes, then shampoo and rinse as normal

Pineapple Foot Rub

This one is easy as pie:

  • Take 1 cup of fresh pineapple and puree in a food processor
  • Take the pineapple mixture and spread and rub all over feet including your heels and around your nails (you may feel a tingle)
  • After 10 minutes rinse off with warm water and pat dry
