Coconut Oil... so many uses for your skin + hair!
It's no secret I'm a huge fan of Coconut Oil, especially Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
Coconut oil is loaded with good fats that provide us with healthy skin ,hair energy, ability to fight microbes in the body and it's also excellent for cooking. It even smells amazing!
1. Use as Body Butter
Mix Coconut Oil and your favorite essential oil to create a rich all-over body moisturizer.
2. Body Scrub
Moisturize while getting rid of dead skin cells by making your own body (or facial) scrub. Just mix coconut oil with coconut sugar to reveal smoother skin. Try it a few times a week.
I personally prefer Nutiva Virgin Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil.
3. Cold Sore Treatment
Prone to cold sores? Dabbing coconut oil on them can help speed up healing time.
4. Cuticle Oil
Have dry cuticles? Dabbing coconut oil on them can help dryness and keeps germs at bay.
5. Detox Bath
Create a simple detox bath with coconut oil by adding ¼ cup of Organic Epsom Salts, great for detoxing, to ¼ cup of coconut oil into a hot bath.
I prefer a Non-GMO organic epsom salt such as SkyOrganics Epsom Salt for my detox bath. When detoxing, you want the very best grade, pharmaceutical, plus it is made in the USA.
Once a week, I will detox with my epsom salt bath for 20 minutes. If you prefer a relaxing scent, simply add 10 drops of a relaxing EO, such as Lavender essential oil.
Again, go for therapeutic grade, not a cheap imitation product.
