I'm in love with da coco...okay come on am I the only one who sings that song anytime the word "coconut" comes up in conversation (which is actually quite frequent, living in LA)?! But really though, I'm OOOOBBSESSEDD with any and everything coconut. Coconut water, coconut meat, coconut oil, coconut butter, MCT oil--you name it! Coconut oil is one of my favorite coconut superpowers, because it's not just for cooking! Coconut oil is a great oil to cook with high temps because it is temperature stable and won't go rancid with high heat like other oils such as olive. I love coconut oil even more because it is my skincare secret weapon!! Coco oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it's an amazing moisturizer, and it smells amazing!

Coconut oil is honestly the shit, plain and simple. I've been using it for years as aftershave to combat dry legs (legit they looked like scales, and coconut oil saved me). I've been using just plain coconut oil, which is sort of a hassle because it doesn't come in a convenient tube and is solid at room temperature. I recently came across Organic to Green and they are low key solving all of my coconut oil woes! They recently launched a coconut oil collection that is the modern option for coco oil lovers as it never turns solid, is in a convenient pump making it super easy to use, share and travel with (no spills!)! PLUS they upgraded everyday coco oil by infusing organic essential oils and herbal botanicals for added benefits and luxury. Each oil has over 25 uses--which is amazing because it reduces the amount of products you need in your bathroom cabinet! I'm working on adopting a more minimalist lifestyle (which is really hard for a former mild skincare hoarder). Also, 10% of each purchase goes towards climate change. I love supporting conscious brands that give back. Not to mention, every product smells D I V I N E! Coconut oil alone smells amazing, so infusing the essential oils and botanicals makes it next level.

I got this travel kit to get a taste of everything. I love the lip scrub made with coconut sugar. The exfoliation makes your lips super supple and kissable, and if you get a little extra delicious sugar in your mouth that never hurt anyone! I'm obsessed with the Lavender+Lemon Hand Sanitizer--it's a great natural alternative for former Purell addicts *cough cough* The Great Barrier chapstick is soooo hydrating before bed, and the liquid coconut Vanilla coconut oil smells like cake!!
