If you haven’t used coconut oil yet, what are you waiting for?
I am going to show you how this one jar of organic coconut oil can replace 20 other expensive products that you use in beauty, cleaning, and of course food!
Simply scoop some onto your fingertips (it will melt quickly as you use it) and rub it over make-up in a circular motion, rinsing with water afterwards to remove traces of makeup and patting your face dry. It works well with eye make-up, waterproof or not, as well. You can use a mild soap if you wish to remove all traces of the oil.
I love my coffee black but this is apparently really popular! The reason for this craze is that the coconut oil gives an extra kick of natural energy on top of the caffeine from the coffee.
This is the recipe so you can stretch your coconut oil into more products:
Combine coconut oil, baking soda, cornstarch, and arrowroot in a mixing bowl. When well combined, add in a drop or two of your favorite essential oil.
Coconut oil contains lauric acid (which is also found in breast milk) and has antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It helps promote healing while also soothing baby’s delicate skin. Use your fingertips to apply to the affected area and allow it to dry before replacing the diaper.
When you rub coconut massage oil on your skin and leave it for a few hours, you don’t need to worry that it will become rancid and damage your skin or invite infections.
The presence of powerful anti-microbial agents like capric acid and lauric acid in coconut oil do not let microbes infect your skin.
A DIY coconut oil lip balm will do the job, smell good, and taste good without drying out your lips. It can actually help heal your chapped lips and cold sores, thanks to the antiviral properties of the lauric acid found in coconut oil.
Bruce Fife, ND, author of Coconut Cures: Preventing and Treating Common Health Problems with Coconut Oil, explains that coconut oil applied on the skin protects against sunburn and cancer. Unlike sunscreen, unprocessed coconut oil doesn’t completely block the UVB rays that are necessary for vitamin D synthesis. It protects the skin and underlying tissues from damage excessive exposure can cause. Instead of burning or turning red, it produces a light tan, depending on the length of time you spend in the sun.
Heal your sunburn overnight in just 2 steps:
Before bed, soften cracked, rough skin and calluses by exfoliating your feet and then applying a generous layer of coconut oil. Since it has natural antibacterial properties, it’ll deodorize as it softens. Then slip on some socks to wake up with much smoother, better smelling soles.
Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties. This is especially helpful if you are prone to razor burn or are shaving delicate skin.
Removing excess skin flaking can help reveal more glowing skin underneath. The following routine can help you accomplish that without harsh chemicals:
Don’t want to spend the extra money on eye cream? Use a dab of coconut oil on under-eye bags and fine lines. It’s light enough for the most delicate skin on your face.
Mix half a cup of coconut oil with a handful of coarse salt or sugar to create an exfoliator. The moisturizing oil will last long after the grains have melted away.
Warm coconut oil in the microwave and add a few drops of essential oil like lavender or peppermint for a soothing massage mix.
Dandruff and dry scalp go hand in hand. So send moisture right to the roots with a nightly coconut oil treatment. Just apply lightly to roots and massage in, which will also stimulate hair growth.
Did you know that you can prevent stretch marks when pregnant when you rub coconut oil on a pregnant belly to prevent stretch marks.
