Peppermint Coconut Oil Fudge

Peppermint Coconut Oil Fudge

peppermint coconut oil fudge

Fudge always reminds me of the holiday season. Growing up, my mother always made fudge for neighbors, the mail person, the trash collectors, as well as friends and family.

It’s a treat I love… a bit too much. It’s hard to eat just one piece of fudge! Over-doing it is easy, especially during the holidays. When someone makes an extra special treat to bring to the table, it sits there waiting for you to eat it!

When you bring a tasty dish for everyone to share, why not make it a healthy alternative? This peppermint coconut oil fudge is just as delicious, if not more so, than sugar filled fudge.

It uses coconut oil, which has healthy fats and all sorts of benefits. Cocoa has naturally occurring antioxidants, and research tells of all kinds of benefits cocoa has to offer. This treat is delicious, healthier, and doesn’t leave you feeling guilty for grabbing that second – or third – piece.

What you need

How to make it

  • Using a double boiler on low heat, fully melt the coconut oil.
  • Turn the heat off, and fold in the coconut milk and maple syrup.
  • Add in the cocoa powder or nibs, stirring to melt them in the mixture.
  • Finally, add the vanilla and peppermint extract.
  • Use a hand mixer to fully blend all ingredients.
  • Line your baking dish with parchment paper, and pour the mixture on top.
  • Put your dish in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

Voila! Now you have delicious peppermint coconut oil fudge, ready to share with friends and family. You can easily double this recipe to make a bigger batch. Bring these to the table at Christmastime, and everyone will appreciate it!

Why Use Eucalyptus Oil

Prefer to read the Transcript?

In This Video I share with you Why Use Eucalyptus Essential Oil especially when you have a cough or a cold.

With the Winter season upon us, we must all take extra special precautions when it comes to the health and vitality of our bodies. We must consistently eat healthy, sleep well, keep warm, and stay as stress-free as possible.

The reality is that during the Winter season, many of us do unfortunately fall ill with sicknesses including colds, fevers, coughs, the flu, etc.

But thanks to eucalyptus oil, many of these common ailments that we tend to catch during the Winter season can primarily be avoided.

As a rule, eucalyptus oil for coughs has been shown time and time again to be extremely effective at helping aid both the symptoms of coughs and decrease the body ever falling ill with a cough.

The way to use eucalyptus oil for coughs is to massage the oil into the skin, namely, the soles of the feet. It is beneficial to mix undiluted eucalyptus oil with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil to decrease any chance of skin irritation.

Simply massage the mixture onto the soles of the feet of the one who is ill and the cough will be cured! This is even safe for children, and much healthier than traditional over-the-counter cough syrups.

In addition, eucalyptus oil is amazing at curing colds and preventing them from ever affecting the body.

To use eucalyptus oil for colds, simply make a steam inhalation. To do this, boil water on the stove and then add 3-4 drops of the oil.  Then place a towel over the head and breathe in the eucalyptus-water mixture for 10 minutes.

The anti-bacterial and antiviral properties in the eucalyptus oil will treat the cold and open up the breathing passageways in the nose.

Overall, eucalyptus is something of a miracle product that is completely natural, and works great at effectively treating both colds and coughs. To learn more about using Natural Products Visit our Blog & Subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

DIY Hydrating Hand Cream

DIY Hydrating Hand Cream

diy hydrating hand cream

Our hands go through a lot throughout our lives. They type, text, do our hair and makeup, apply skin care… They tie our children’s shoes, give massages, write out sweet messages on birthday cards… the list is truly endless.

Many of us work with our hands throughout our lives as well. For something on our bodies that does so much, it’s surprising how we don’t treat our hands as well as our faces. Hands dry out, crack, wrinkle, and age faster than most of our bodies.

So, why not treat our hands to some DIY hydrating hand cream once in a while?

This recipe has all natural ingredients with vitamins and fatty acids to help our hands. It prevents many signs of pre-mature aging to keep hands moisturized and well taken care of.

Shea butter provides deep, penetrating moisture, while coconut oil adds moisture and locks it in.

Almond oil provides additional moisturizing benefits, as well as skin care vitamins.

Lavender oil not only has antibacterial properties, it also provides a soothing scent that relaxes the mind and body.

What You Need

How to Make it

Using a double boiler on low-medium heat, melt together the raw shea butter and virgin coconut oil.

Remove from the heat, and let it sit for about fifteen minutes to cool off.

Add in the sweet almond oil and lavender essential oil.

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend together for a few minutes.

Pour the mixture into a container of your choice. You can either let it sit in room temperature for several hours to cool, or put it in your fridge for an hour or two.

To use your hydrating hand cream, take a small amount and melt it between your hands by rubbing them together. Apply to both hands using a circular massaging motion, to deeply penetrate and provide long lasting moisture.
