The #1 Beauty Oil in the World

April 19, 2017 3 min read

Coconut oil is finally getting the attention it deserves! Over the past couple of years it has made its way from under the radar to the spotlight, becoming an essential household product. It can be used for everything from a cooking supply to a beauty product to a body detox; it truly is one of a kind! Here are 10 ways to use coconut oil that just may take you by surprise.

1. Hair Mask

Bring your bottle of coconut oil into the shower and run it under the hot water. Coconut oil is a creamy solid at room temperature but once heated up turns liquid. After shampooing, take a generous amount of the liquid coconut oil and run it through your hair, then whip your hair up into a bun and leave for at least 5 minutes. Rinse out the oil and voila you now have silky, moisturized, and repaired hair!

2. Cooking

Coconut oil is one of the top if not the top oil to cook with. Most of the fat in coconut oil comes from saturated fats, the benefit being that it does not have trans fat or cholesterol – woohoo! Also a great dairy free replacement instead of using butter!

3. Makeup Remover

Not only does it moisturize but it is the ultimate makeup remover as well. Especially when it comes to waterproof makeup – my go to! Take a small amount and rub it between your finger tips to warm it up and then spread it across your eyes – after take a cotton pad to wipe away the oil and the makeup will follow!

4. Shaving Cream

That’s right you can even shave with it. Same as before warm it up and apply over your legs! Damp or dry it will work like a charm – just watch out because the tub can get a little slippery!

5. Coffee Cream

Not only is this wayyyyy healthier then real cream it tastes so much better too! Just drop a spoonful of it in your coffee and your tastebuds will be thanking you! There is no turning back once you try it.

6. Toothpaste

Have yet to try this out… but after reading about it, I think it could definitely be the next quick fix to getting extra white teeth!!

7. Mosquito Bites

Coconut oil seems to be curing any and all issues we may face! If you get a nasty mosquito bite put some coconut oil on it and seconds later you will instantly be relived of the itch!

8. Sore Throat

Melt some coconut oil and mix it in with your tea when you have a sore throat, the coconut coat will make your throat feel immediately better. Not to mention it is nice and tasty as well!

9. Cuticles to help Nails Grow

This may be a myth… we haven’t had the chance to try it out. But supposedly if you put it on as cuticle treatment it really does wonders. Just make sure you don’t have to open any doors after putting it on!

10. Body Scrub

Mix in ½ cup of sugar with ½ cup of coconut oil and put it in an airtight container. When showering taking a palm full of the body scrub, rub it over your body, rinse it off and there you go skin feeling silky smooth!
