    Have you had any irritation issues? I find these very effective, but I cannot take almost any natural deodorants due to my poor, irritated underarms. Regular, nasty, chemical laden deodorants? No problem. My underarms are soft and comfy. Natural ones with baking soda or cornstarch -- or even the natural ones with salts or clay -- and my underarms burn and get red. I so want to get rid of these chemicals!

    Coconut oil also is a great eye makeup remover. Non irritating to the eyes.

    Hmm, have you tried arrowroot? I haven't had irritation issues, but my skin isn't terribly sensitive to begin with.
    Here's another recipe that is supposed to be less irritating (but does have the baking soda)

    I have veery dry skin and coconut oil help me more than anything, I apply it on my face every day before going to bed and my skin looks much better and softer than before) Here's the also the article about coconut oil for baby skin. My friend uses coconut oil for her baby, she says it helps for diaper rash very well.

    I agree that coconut oil is the bomb. I have a bald head (by choice ) and my scalp is prone to drying out. So I apply a small amount of coconut oil to my scalp after shaving it and to my face. Plus coconut oil just smells so good especially when heated. I get a big tub of it from Costco and today I just ran out from the tub I bought back in August!

    I too use it as eye make up remover, and as a moisturiser. It helps post-leg shaving too.

    As a mum, I can confirm it is also useful on kids for eczema, thrush, sore bums post-constipation and nappy rash. And as a general placebo for various ills and ailments that children believe need cream!

    I also sometimes use it in my bath to disperse essential oils. Skin comes out lovey but makes the bath very slippy!

    also as mouthwash. my gums feel super clean and healthy.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
