Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are preparing to spend a beautiful and blessed day with your loved ones. One of the things I’m grateful for is coconut oil. I’m amazed at how many things you can do with it and how beneficial it is. First, if you haven’t gotten a jar of this magical stuff, I suggest you do. I recommend an organic unrefined expeller pressed oil (see my link to Amazon below).
My first introduction to this stuff was by a coworker who had glowing skin. We got to talking skincare and she shared that she only used coconut oil to wash her face and remove her make-up. I was immediately intrigued. As I researched about the benefits, I came across the tremendous amount of ways to use it and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve had a jar of it on my bathroom counter ever since. Let me count the ways:
-use it to remove make-up
-wash your face with it
-use it as a nightly moisturizer once a week
-use it for acne breakouts (it’s so refined and will penetrate the pores and push the bacteria out)
-add it to your body moisturizer
-add a scoop to your warm bath water
-rub it into your rough heels
-rub it into your cuticles and nails nightly
-use it as deep conditioning hair treatment
-swish it around in your mouth and hold it there for as long as you can, it’s a great detox
Here’s a link to an affordable jar of coconut oil at Amazon Spectrum Coconut Oil. Please leave me a comment and let me know how you use this natural gem.
Warrior tip: Coconut oil changes consistency based on temperature. It will solidify in normal/cooler temps and liquify in warm weather. Rub it between your hands to break it down to an oil…a little goes a long way. Give it a few minutes to absorb.
