    Awesome Maria!!!
    I was just going to reply to your response on coconut oil on another post but here you are a new regular volunteer.LOVE IT! Thank you so much for your time .
    We are grateful! I am headed to Chicago tomorrow for another R&R girlfriend trip to visit my daughter. Whole Foods has coconut oil (looks like crisco right) and I can use this on that very itcy dry patch of skin I have had for 2 years now. I will try anything.
    I had a pedicure this morning and the lady that I had recommended Melauca oil for that dry patch. Have you heard of this? Not sure this spelling is correct.

    Patti,

    Yes, I've heard of Melaluca Oil, and it's great for dry skin as well.¬† I also mix pure Glycerin with my lotion–only needs a few drops.¬† It has done wonders for my skin, especially when I was having the severe itching fits this summer.¬†

    Have a blast in Chicago–I love it here!¬† (minus the winter weather)

    Ladies – melaleuca oil – also known Tea Tree Oil –¬†is a very potent natural antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial oil. Personally I would not¬†consider using it for¬†dry skin – way too strong. I have some and love it as a topical antispetic for cuts, pimples etc but I always dilute well.¬†Here's a wikipedia description. Lynnie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_tree_oil

    Be well! Lynnie

    You are so right Lynnie–I mistakenly was thinking of Melaluca products, which is a natural product company that uses melaluca oil in a lot of their products, lotions included.¬† Thanks for the correction.
