DIY: Beachy Summer Scent

 I often get stopped by other women who ask me what perfume I wear.  In fact, it happens all of the time.  Ironically, I don't wear perfume.  Ever.  Most perfumes give me an instant headache and I've yet to find one that's light enough for my sensitive sense of smell.  My "signature scent" is simply a combination of Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter (which smells amazing on its own) and a few drops of Bio-Oil.  I actually discovered this combination by accident while I was pregnant.  I used to slather both products on my belly and instantly fell in love with the scent.  It not only keeps my skin extremely moisturized, but the combination of the two results in the most amazing lightweight "beachy-coconut" smell.  Best of all, it costs around $20 total.  So before you go ahead spend $100+ on a new bottle of perfume, give this combo a try!
