I've been using coconut oil for a while now in my cooking. 
I love the benefits of using it as well as the taste!
Coconut Oil is the freshest take on cooking! That’s because coconut oil is one of the most versatile cooking oils, perfect for sautéing, drizzling and even pan frying!
A few of my favorite dishes to use it in are stir fry, roasted sweet potato, and pan seared chicken.
I've tried a few different brands but have definitely loved LouAna Coconut Oil the best!
LouAna was born in Opelousas, Louisiana in 1820, a place where the food is an elemental expression of love, flavor, and family. 
With over 14 different types of cooking oil, LouAna has the perfect oil for all of your cooking needs.
Whether its sautéing, deep frying or baking, LouAna helps every type of cook put the best dish on the table each and every time.
So, If you’re looking for a mildly delicious coconut taste and aroma, then LouAna Unrefined Coconut Oil is perfect!

Not only do I love cooking with coconut oil, but I absolutely love using it for beauty benefits!
There are several different ways to use it for beauty purposes, but my favorite way I have found so far is to make a mask/cleanser out of it!
This mask is incredibly easy and has many benefits for your skin. 

So, what are those benefits you ask?
Here ya go!

1) Gets Rid of Acne: Baking soda and coconut oil scrub will help you easily fight acne without using harsh products from the drugstore. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of the two miracle ingredients together help treat the cause as well as reduce symptoms of acne and other breakouts. It also helps balance the skin’s pH which in turn will help prevent reoccurring breakouts.

2) SOFT skin! Using this mask/cleanser will gently wash away the rough outer layer of skin on your face revealing fresh and soft new skin. In turn, you'll notice your skin has a healthy glow to it.

3) Acts as GOOD oil: This acts as an absorbing agent to control excess oil. Controlled oil on your face decreases breakouts! 

It also helps even your skin tone, get rid of blackheads, get rid of dark spots, can help with sunburns, and can even be used in your hair to remove product build up on your scalp! 
Seriously, soo many benefits!

So, how do you make this miracle mask?
It's incredibly easy!

What you'll need:
-A medium bowl
-LouAna Liquid coconut oil
-Baking Soda
-Container to store in

-Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to medium bowl
-Add 1 tsp baking soda to bowl
-Stir until evenly mixed and white in color
-Massage about a tsp (more or less) of mixture in circular motions on your skin for 5-10 minutes focusing on trouble areas
-Rinse off with cold water and pat your face dry with a towel

Can you believe that is it?
It is so easy and so insanely good for your face!
But what do you do with all the leftover since you only use about a tsp each time??
I like to store mine in an air tight container so I can easily access it for each use!
I got my container at a craft store and I'm sure you can find one similar several other places.
I then used my vinyl cutter to make a little blue label for the front. 
I wrote on the words "scrub a dub dub" in hopes to keep my husband from throwing it away ;)
Since it looks like milky water, it's best to be safe haha.
I just attached that to the jar and had myself a cute little way to store my mask!

I highly suggest using LouAna Liquid Coconut oil for best results because LouAna is always the start of something good!
I purchased mine at My local Kroger Banner Store where they had several in stock and it was easy to find.
