I love making DIY beauty goodies to use in my baths like bath bombsbath soaksbath sachets and coconut oil bath melts. Since it’s summer, I thought it would be really nice to soak in a tub that smells like mojito.

There is something that is just so refreshing about the combination of lime and mint together! And by combining those lovely scents with nourishing coconut oil, I can moisturize my skin at the very same time.

If you’re not using coconut oil to moisturize your skin in addition to cooking with it, you’re missing out!
