TJ Lemongrass Coconut Oil
A friend of mine always wears this body oil. It has a very distinct lemongrass scent that smells amazing and I always mention it when she puts it on. I had no idea it was a Trader Joe’s brand until she gifted me with a bottle. It is the perfect after shower body oil whether before bed or in the morning, lemongrass is known to reduce stress and uplift the mood. The oil keeps my skin shiny me hydrated throughout the day. Do yourself a favor a grab a bottle ASAP!
One good thing that came from quarantine was my hair growth. Because salons were closed, I went a few months without putting heat on my hair. I also spent more time and effort caring for my hair and putting it into protective styles. I can’t take all of the credit though, these products from Mielle Organics definitely helped. I’ve been using the Rosemary Mint Hair Growth Oil for a while now. The oil leaves my hair hydrated and shiny but not overly oily. I suffer from scalp anyways so I can use all the extra moisture. I recently added the Rice Water collection for my wash day/wash and go routine. Rice water is know to add hydration and strengthen hair to prevent breakage. Women in Japan have used rice water as a hair treatment for centuries. The Rice Water collection leaves my hair soft and doesn’t leave residue or product build up.
You can purchase Mielle at Target, Walmart or most pharmacy stores where hair care products are sold. You can also order online www.MielleOrganics.com
Rooted River Coffee Scrub
I recently posted about Tia, the owner of Rooted River Essentials in my persons post (make sure you check it out), but this post is to rave about her products. I ordered the fadeaway coffee scrub. The products are all handmade and organic. It shipped fast, was nicely packaged and it smells amazing. I love a good body scrub and this one is supposed to fade some of these stretch marks. I have another trip coming up in a few weeks so I can’t wait to see the outcome.
