Dry Skin – Pointers For Milk Relief Soap Users

Dry Skin – pointers for users of Milk Relief Soap
boxed oval bar of Milk Relief Soap™ (70 g) and a small jar of Green Gear Balm (30 ml).

Above is Milk Relief Soap™ in the Dry Skin Combo product at Coconut Oil Shop’s www.ShySheep.com

I’ll uncover a word of caution we sent to a client. I thought you may like to read it too.

What we find from experience is that some customers can get very enthusiastic at the start and overuse the soap which could result in drier skin, especially if they stop using their normal cream/moisturiser suddenly.

It is true that a lot of people can get away with not putting any moisturiser on after a wash with Milk Relief Soap™; however, Milk Relief Soap™ is a soap purely created for washing skin effectively without irritating sensitive skin, so a moisturiser is still needed if your skin is very dry.

A very good moisturiser we recommend is pure virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-microbial, so it will help if your skin is breaking out.

Pointers about Virgin Coconut Oil and skin

The key with coconut oil is to use a small amount often, as it is absorbed into skin very quickly. Also to avoid getting it into eyes.

If you already have the moisturiser that works well for you and you like, you should continue to use it as needed.

Sometimes the skin seems to get worse for a time but improves thereafter, after Milk Relief Soap™ has had a chance to take effect. (At least a week.)

Please understand that we are not able to give any medical/therapeutic advice, so what we’ve stated above is for reference only.

Introducing another product we developed for skin

Lano Relief Skin Stick™
Pure NZ Lanolin + Manuka Oil at your fingertips, without the gooey mess or unpleasant smell!

  • Breastfeeding care
  • Dry skin care
  • Cracked skin care

Net 13g approx. This unique skin stick comes in a small oval tube, like a mini deodorant stick. Ideal size for your pocket or handbag. A skin stick is also sometimes referred to as solid moisturiser or hard lotion.

Lanolin comes from sheep’s wool. It’s the natural oil that coats sheep’s wool and helps the sheep to keep dry when it rains. It is completely sustainable, as the wool grows back quickly. You can learn more here, at ShySheep.com

Do you dip skin in Coconut Oil, find out what happens

Do you dip skin in Coconut Oil?

I did dip skin in Coconut Oil.

Dip Skin In Coconut Oil Finger Nail Splinter Before and AfterThis is my finger.

I had a splinter under my finger nail! That really hurt!

I know first hand what pain is all about!  But I refused to take myself to the doctor to have the splinter removed. I decided to do what Porfirio (Paul) Sorse, the Filipino, who moved to the USA, would do. I decided to dip my finger in warmed Virgin Coconut Oil. Here’s how is happened. (I reported on this incident in a previous post on this blog).

I dip skin in Coconut Oil when I feel pain

Let’s agree on this one thing. You don’t need a splinter in your finger to dip skin in Coconut Oil. But I recently reached down to pick up some clippings from the path, and my hand struck the side of a rough post. I had splinters on the side of the post.

Unfortunately, in that split second of contact with the post, I put a splinter all the way up the visible part of my finger nail.

I rubbed plain Virgin Coconut Oil on it at the time and put a plaster on to protect the finger from bumps. Because I was busy, and the finger was sore, I didn’t give it as much attention as I should have. I’ve then began treating the finger with melted Coconut Oil, and also Green Gear Balm. I will say, I didn’t take care of my finger as I should have initially. So make sure you get onto it, and seek professional medical assistance as necessary.

Rub Coconut Oil on your skin? Steam burned stomach

Do you rub Coconut Oil on your skin?

This photo was emailed to us to demonstrate the results when he decided to rub Coconut Oil on his skin.

Warning: my wife and I were enjoying a relaxing meal, and the mobile phone made a notification noise. My wife opened the lid of the phone and looked at the message. Then she instantly slammed the phone shut as she made a rather loud, surprised sound!
This was what she saw! The hairy burnt stomach of a 50+-year-old man!

Stomach burn treated with napoBIO Virgin Coconut Oil

“I was fixing a coffee machine and i burned with steam my stomach,
First thing I did was too covered immediately
With my Napobio cold pressed coconut oil and lemongrass
See photos days 1 to day 6 fantastic result
I don’t covered the burn just sprayed the oil every 2 to 3 h on tope of the burn”

I rub Coconut Oil on my skin

Let’s agree on this one thing. You don’t need a severe burn to rub Coconut Oil on your skin. In fact, I recently reached down to pick up some clippings from the path, and my hand struck the side of a rough post. I had splinters on the side of the post.

Unfortunately, in that split second of contact with the post, I put a splinter all the way up the visible part of my finger nail.

Coconut Oil – Lauren Hutton – VIOLET GREY

Coconut Oil – Lauren Hutton
What Lauren says about slathering herself with Coconut Oil since age 22

Lauren Hutton 1960s slathered coconut oil on her skin since age 22
Lauren Hutton 1960s slathered coconut oil on her skin since age 22

LH: Well, I’ll have to tell you that I’ve been slathering myself in coconut oil since I was about 22.

AH: DO YOU EVER USE SUNSCREEN?
Lauren Hutton slathered coconut oil on her skin since age 22
Lauren Hutton today, after 48 years of Coconut Oil application to her skin, at age 70

LH: I never did. I kept trying to, especially since I spent decades on the equator, and you really should have a hat! But I just couldn’t do it. I think it was because I was always coming from three months of modeling, and when I’d get free, I’d be on a plane the next day and didn’t want to touch anything. I didn’t take makeup, I didn’t take a mirror, and I certainly didn’t take sunscreen.

AH: DO YOU EVER REGRET THAT?

LH: Yes, sort of. It depends on what kind of light I’m looking at myself in.
AH: DO YOU HAVE ANYONE YOU SEE REGULARLY NOWADAYS? DERMATOLOGIST?FACIALIST?

LH: Only my priest.

This post will annoy some ordinary people. Relax. It’s just for fun. Nobody at the Coconut Oil Shop thinks you should look like a celebrity, and nobody at the Coconut Oil Shop looks like one. You dont even have to eat like our friends at Juliaandlibby.com! But we sure do rub Virgin Coconut Oil on our faces and hair!

DIY Deodorant

From Facebook and shared 2600 times! DIY Deodorant

DIY Deodorant FoodMatters.TV

I grabbed this DIY Deodorant recipe off Facebook.

Here are the noteworthy FB questions and answers I’ve seen

Does it stain?

The answer from one person is no, and I do Ball Room Dancing.

Why do you not want to sweat (it lets toxins out)?

An answer was, deodorant does not stop you sweating. It takes the smell away. Anti-perspirant does stop sweat.

Is it sticky (under the arm sticky feeling)?

No reply on Facebook. But I can say it will absorb very well if it has Virgin Coconut Oil in it, the same goes for quality essential oils.

How do you store it?

Glass jar. We have 160ml tin lid glass jars for sale with Virgin Coconut Oil in them….

As some of you know, I take some Virgin Coconut Oil to my shower each morning, along with my Milk Relief­­™ SoapThey do the job of a deodorant for me as well as everything else.

Coconut Oil and Soap For The Shower

Neil’s Coconut Oil and Soap Secrets

I use these two products each day.

Since producing this video, I’ve thought about something that is worth noting. It is the point that skin that sits in moist folds, like under the arms, or other places, may develop an itchy skin condition. In some cases this may benefit from rubbing with Virgin Coconut Oil. Well, that seems obvious from the video. But here comes the less than obvious part.

Any skin repeatedly coming in contact with other skin with a rash actually needs Virgin Coconut Oil rubbed on it too. Let’s take a pleasant example of this. Let’s say your inner leg gets crossed against your other leg while you sit down. For example, behind the knee. Chances are it is worth rubbing Virgin Coconut Oil on both sides of both legs each morning.

Other examples will spring to mind for you.

Now I’m a bit thick sometimes. So for years I’ve had this itch, and it is in a joint, and I’d focused on the part of the skin that is itchy. I hadn’t thought so much about any other skin in the area that was coming in contact with the itchy part! So what I write today is in this case what I learnt this morning.

Are you new to Coconut Oil?

We’ve got a short tour for beginners at the “Start Here” page.

Green Relief Salve and The Angry Wasp

Green Salve | Do wasp stings have to hurt for a long time?
Do wasp stings have to hurt for a long time?

I had never been stung by bees or wasps, even in my childhood

We were happily celebrating our daughter’s birthday, with a quiet lunchtime party outside. Then I suddenly felt a sharp sting on my arm.  I had just put my arm down on the table. The sudden pain gave me what felt like the shock of my life.  Then as I lifted my arm up, we all saw a lightly squashed wasp stinging me with all its might!

I was stunned. It took me a while to register that I was indeed being stung by a wasp, so the damage was already done by the time I flicked the wasp with my fingers. The others just stared at my arm in horror as I held it up with a wasp still on it.

It hurt.

It really hurt.

Funny thing – people tell me wasps never leave a sting in the skin but this one did. Perhaps it was because it got squashed under my arm. I had to beg someone to fetch a pair of tweezers so I could get the sting out. This delay added to the pain.

After what seemed like quite long enough, someone brought a teaspoon of raw honey for me to put on the sore area of the skin. “It takes away the sting,” so I was told.

We’ve been getting raw honey from a local beekeeper for years, and it’s great stuff. Hey, but, it’s sticky! Well, of course; it’s honey.

It was a great first aid trick. And I endured the sticky mess politely for a while. But I still had pain and some honey had already got on my clothes and my watch, and I couldn’t stand the stickiness. I didn’t like it, and when I got an opportunity, I went straight to the tap and washed all the honey off. Then I reached for my usual cure-all jar. Yes, that is “Green Relief Salve,” which I formulated and made myself.

Boy that felt so soothing!

I rubbed a generous amount on my arm where it hurt. Thanks to the special blend of therapeutic grade essential oils in the salve, it numbed the pain instantly. Boy that felt soothing! I felt I could carry on with my day again. An hour or so later, my arm started hurting again, so I repeated the process.

I just rubbed some more Green Relief Salve on, just a small amount each time that I noticed the pain which would have been every couple of hours, I suppose. By the time it was time for bed, I honestly couldn’t tell where exactly I was stung. No swelling, no redness, no pain.

It was incredible.

Next morning, I studied my arm closely but nothing could be seen or felt, so there was no need to put the salve on.

Why did this happen?

What makes Green Relief Salve effective in this way? Green Relief Salve can numb the pain, draw out toxins and reduce inflammation.

It is naturally:

  • anti-microbial
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-viral
  • anti-fungal as well as
  • anti-imflammatry

Our family reach for it more than anything else on the shelf. It was a life-saver one year when all eight children came down with chicken pox one after another…

Soothing, yes, that’s it, and I can’t help but get a good whiff of it every time I open the jar. The smell is soothing for the soul, too.
