I’ve talked before about how my body reacts horribly to anything with harsh-chemicals in it (which is pretty much all health, beauty, and cleaning products at the store).
I had finally gotten rid of the eczema that had developed on my hands (going grain-free really really helped), and then I did a hand scrub at Bath & Body Works. UGH! I just wasn’t thinking! Within a couple of hours I had a major eczema flare-up that didn’t go away for weeks.
So, I am just completely staying away from putting any type of harsh chemicals on my body.
I use coconut oil and essential oils all of the time, so I was super excited to find this easy recipe for a homemade lip scrub using them!
