  • Condition your hair by mixing together a 1/2 cup to a cup of your favorite conditioner with a capful of a carrier oil of your choice (olive, jojoba, sweet almond, etc.)

  • Add a tablespoon or two to distilled or floral water (until a nice paste forms) to cleanse your face. Make sure to moisturize afterwards

  • Use it as a body scrub by adding 1/4 to a 1/2 cup to your shower gel
