The amazing coconut oil kinda got a bad rep during the 90’s ‘low fat’ campaigns. But this oil is fantastic for healthy insides as well as many uses topically. Here are some ways I like to use coconut oil other than for cooking.
1~Soft silky skin…take a bath with 1 TBS of melted coconut oil and pat yourself dry. Your skin will feel baby soft!
2~Anti-aging night cream. Just put some on your palms and massage it into your face. It’s A LOT cheaper than those expensive creams with loads of chemicals and weird fragrances. I dream about Hawaii all night long!
4~Deep Treat Scalp and Hair Conditioner. Massage it into your scalp and run your fingers through you hair and sleep on it. You might want to wear a cap to keep your pillow from getting greasy. Wash in the morning for super shiny and silky hair and bye-bye dandruff! Try once weekly if you have dry hair/scalp.
5~Dry elbows or cracked heels: rub it in and put socks on to sleep or wrap your elbow with the top of a tube sock cut off to help keep the moisture in.
I’ve heard that it’s great for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and even skin fungal infections. Green Smoothie Girl gave her son a few spoonfuls twice daily to help him rid of painful urinary tract infections.
Get your coconut on!
