Supplies Needed:


  • Organic coconut oil – 2 heaped tablespoons (solid)
  • White sugar – 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon – 1 small
  • A microwave-safe mixing bowl
  • A spoon
  • An empty glass bottle

Your stems are also important parts of your body. Pamper them like you pamper your face with a serum…..well…..with a natural homemade one

Steps To Follow:

Put the solid organic coconut oil in a microwave-safe mixing bowl and keep it inside the microwave oven for a few seconds. Once the oil melts completely, remove the bowl from the oven and let it cool down first. Then, stir the melted coconut oil with the spoon and ensure that there is no lumps or bumps in it.  Add white sugar granules to it. Also, squeeze out the fresh juice of the lemon into the bowl. Stir all ingredients nicely by using the spoon. The aim is to dissolve the sugar granules fully and come up with a smooth and slightly sticky liquid of thin consistency. Pour it into the empty storage container and you are done!

[Note: Use only organic coconut oil to treat your arms and legs the best possible way. It is even better to find the extra virgin one. If your oil is already in the liquid form, take at least 3 tablespoons of it. Whether you use white sugar or brown sugar in this serum, make sure that you take both oil and sugar in equal parts. Also, do not use too much lemon juice as it might dry out your skin. ]

Recipe 2:

This serum is loaded with antioxidant properties, which makes it a super-hydrating, anti-aging serum for our limbs. Make them free of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation by using it regularly.

Pour the serum onto your palm or finger, spread uniformly over your arms and legs, and massage it gently into your skin by moving the pads of your fingers in a small circular motion, Just Make sure that you have cleansed your limbs beforehand and the serum is completely absorbed into the skin.

That’s all!
