Each holiday season, I like to make a simple gift for all the women in the family.

Last year I made these hand scrubs with essential oils, herbs and moisturizing coconut oil that left the hands soft and supple.

I did a peppermint oil salt scrub with a combination of large and small grains of salt (you don't want all large as they can tear the skin) and coconut oil.

I also did lavender essential oil with sage and rosemary along with salts and coconut oil.

I would suggest actually using a liquid oil because coconut oil is solid at room temperature and difficult to work with in a solid scrub.

You can use any combination that you want to customize your scrubs for your individual needs.

7 Current & Popular Pseudoscience Trends Worth Exploring and Questioning ...

Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic remedy that has recently gained a lot of popularity.

It basically consists of swishing oils, like coconut or olive oil, in your mouth for 20 minutes as it "pulls" bacteria and other toxins out of your mouth and throat.

Oil pulling supposedly acts as a body detoxifier, drawing up toxins from your body and trapping them in the oil, creating a cloudy appearance once you spit it out.

This is unfortunately not possible, as amazing as it sounds!

The cloudy appearance is due to the reaction of saliva and movement of swooshing, and will contain some bacteria that's been in your mouth.

At best, you will have better oral health from swooshing a liquid around and through your teeth but it won't do much more.
