Skinny & Co Coconut Oil I love Skinny & Co Coconut Oil! I have tried it before and this is 100% raw patented Nutralock coconut oil that has been pressed by cold process. It is free from chemicals, fillers, solvents and preservatives. I do use coconut oil for my DIY projects and also into my diet as well. Skinny & Co’s oil is made from fresh, wild harvested coconuts from Vietnam and is a high alkaline oil ~ 7.3-7.8 pH. This this is gluten free, vegan and pesticide free. It is really good in coffee, chai, teas and lattes too ~ it adds a nice smoothness and sweetness. r Lauric acid and linoleic acid are two important components in this oil ~ Lauric acid, which makes up 50% of Skinny & Co’s coconut oil, helps increase the good cholesterol (HDL). Linoleic acid has been shown to be a fat burner and helps increase muscles and endurance. There was a study done that shown when women consumed two tablespoons of coconut oil each day, for 3 months, they did not gain weight but lowered their abdominal fat. 4.1 oz Value $14.00
Our patent-pending Nutralock System™ crafts the ONLY raw & alkaline coconut oil on the market today! This internationally exclusive extraction uses no heat to extract, rather cooling the coconut to release the oil (yes that’s right ZERO heat!). Skinny is the closest you can get to a raw coconut. Just open the jar, and find out why so many people are making Skinny their coconut oil! Our coconuts are WILD HARVESTED from the jungles of Vietnam. The coconuts are hand-picked and transported directly to our plant; a controlled environment ensuring quality. Once cracked open, the coconut meat is put into the closed-loop, dehumidifying Nutralock System™. This extracts the moisture without heat, leaving all of the raw nutrients of the coconut intact. source
Mindful Anti-Aging Eye Serum with Primrose & Lavender This vegan, gluten and paraben free eye serum is a lightweight eye product. Serums are usually not as heavy as creams and are a good product for all ages ~ if you are younger, you can use just this ~ if you are older, like me, you use this first and then layer a cream over it. This is doesn’t really have a scent to it ~ it anything, it is a generic scent that is very light and unoffensive. It comes out of the pump very creamy and then as I spread it around, I can tell that this is very silky, smooth and lightweight ~ it absorbs quickly as well.
This contains some amazing moisturizing oils, which is why I am shocked at how weightless this serum is ~ jojoba, borage, evening primrose ~ and it has hydrating aloe and hyaluronic acid, along with calming, soothing and healing lavender. This is vegan and free from parabens, sulfate and gluten, and it is also cruelty free as well. 15 mL RV $49.00

Copper Cup Turmeric Latte Mix This is an amazing find! I love pre-packaged drinks, hot or cold, and this is instant yumminess! Also known as golden milk, this is made with tumeric, a soothing spice that has calming and pain killing benefits, this powder turns into a smooth bright golden yellowy hot drink with a creamy texture, which is due to the organic coconut milk in it.

Aculief Wearable Acupressure I love acupressure and this little device is using natural traditional Chinese medicine to help relieve tension and headaches.

You can even put it between your toes as well ~ that is the liver median and it will help with stress, headaches, anxiety, anger.
