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!

Solid skin balm with Pure New Zealand Lanolin.

  • 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

Whole Wheat Coconut Oil Oatmeal Cookies add some texture variety and interest with oatmeal fibre

What can you expect to be different with these biscuits?

When I think of bought chocolate chip biscuits, I think of Cookie Bear, and those rather hard chocolate chip biscuits. (I was given a Cookie Bear when I was 5 years old).

A key difference with these biscuits, the oatmeal adds a little chew to their inner core. Then the Coconut Oil adds some crisp to the outside of them.

So these cookies provide you with a balance of:

  • chewy centre
  • crispy outer

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits by Marie Nicasi

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits

CRUNCHY OAT COCONUT BISCUITS

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits made with Oil, Oats, Desiccated Coconut and Coconut Flour if desired.

Our Coconut Resort Blog reader Marie Nicasi has shared with her Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits recipe. Let me highlight one amazing thing about this recipe. It has Desiccated Coconut in it, but you may add Coconut Flour instead of some of the Desiccated.

Up to 1 cup of Coconut Flour can be added to these biscuits.

So clearly these biscuits are designed with fibre in mind. Dietary fibre is important for gut health.

Fibre in your diet helps to:

  • cleans the tubes
  • clears the system
  • keeps you regular

Our Coconut Flour is up to 38% fibre, and contributes very little Coconut taste to food.

[gmc_recipe 12866]

Water tips

Here is a tip I’d like to reiterate. Our Gold Sprinkle Raw Organic Desiccated Coconut is full oil. It is not defatted. That will impact on the amount of water you may require, compared with using a cheap, defatted Desiccated Coconut, which may require more water.

Also, if you choose to substitute some of the desiccated with our Raw Organic Coconut Flour, once again, that may require more water. But add it in gradually.

Coconut Flour Crepe Cake | Grain Free | Dairy Free

Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake

Coconut Flour Crepe Cake

This pretty pile of Crêpe makes a Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake. (Gather the teenagers or a friend or two, you’ll struggle to eat it all by yourself!)

Why Coconut Flour with Crêpes?

Coconut Flour keeps you regular… and so do these berries. That is one reason why you really ought to make an excuse to try this Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake on a special occasion coming up in your calendar.

Crêpes with cream provide a wonderful celebration mood to the table setting. But some people just can’t handle grain and dairy. This recipe is adeptly adapted by Rose, from TheCleanDish.com to accommodate grain and dairy free diet restrictions.

Are there special guidelines for using Coconut Flour?

Readers have asked for Coconut Flour recipes. Well, this is one. But let’s remind ourselves that Coconut Flour requires a little bit of understanding. Generally speaking Coconut Flour can be added to ordinary flour at a rate of 15%, but anything beyond that requires eggs, or you can get a similar effect with ground flax or chia seeds.

Also, recipes with flour run the risk of going wrong if sifted flour is measured instead of unsifted flour. This guideline applies to Coconut Flour as well.

Below you’ll find the recipe. Be sure to look at the website link below the recipe for instructions on how to make this dish a success.

Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Need a Coconut Oil laden snack with taste, and less sugar?
These bars will fill the gap inside, so you can stay on task till the next meal.
Raw Eatwell Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli BarsLooking for less refined sugar? Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars have dry fruit for sweetening. As a result they use less refined sugar. These no bake bars use raw White Gold Coconut Oil. (Photo Eatwell NZ blog)

Grey-Line1

Firstly, before you begin reading any further, we’d love you to take our Coconut Oil Muesli Bar poll, and you’ll be able to view the latest results from the poll.

[yop_poll id=”4″]

Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Versatile snacks: Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Nuts, or no nuts, you decide, will you have nuts or not? This particular version of the Eatwell NZ recipe has swapped sesame seeds for sunflower, and almonds for mixed nuts. But the results were voted to be scrumptious by all taste testers.

[gmc_recipe 12703]

Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Why Eatwell NZ published this recipe

Nicola, at Eatwell NZ says this about Muesli bars in the supermarket, back in September, 2011, “It’s hard to find the perfect muesli bar at the supermarket. Sugar is often the second ingredient on the list, and they often taste a little average to tell the truth.”

And the search continues… just this week in August 2016, some 5 years after the above muesli bar recipe was posted, we received a request from a loyal New Zealand Coconut Oil Shop customer. It reads like this.

“Would appreciate more sugarless (using dates etc for sweetening) or raw recipes that use coconut oil.”

So that is why this Coconut Resort blog posted our version of this recipe. We love customer interaction, and we love to provide the Smiliest Service!

We also received this fine piece of advice. “Where it says ‘Heat the honey…’ you could add: GENTLY heat the honey. – because
(1) Honey loses its natural enzymes when overheated.
(2) It takes on bitter taste when over heated
(3) It becomes toxic when over heated.
All this can be avoided, by not heating honey above the temp of 104Deg C. The ancient system of Ayurveda considers uncooked honey to be nectar and cooked honey as poison. (they advise never to heat it above 104Deg C)”

Have you seen the reader comment below?

We heard that this goes well with dates and Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil as well as White Gold brand.

Our reader Marie write in, “Thanks for the Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars recipe! I made them (using Ancient Wisdom and 6 dates) and they are beaut.”

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.
