For the Love of Coconut Oil...

Have you ever used Coconut Oil??



I use coconut oil every day!  Maybe not for what you think....

Yes, I do use Coconut Oil to cook, and it is very good for you!  

It may be surprising for you to learn that the naturally occurring saturated fat in coconut oil is actually good for you and provides a number of profound health benefits, such as:
• Improving your heart health.
• Boosting your thyroid. 
• Increasing your metabolism. 
• Promoting a lean body and weight loss if needed.
• Supporting your immune system.

Coconut oil even benefits your skin when applied topically and has been found to have anti-aging, regenerative effects.



Would you believe me if I told you that I also use coconut oil for my skin and hair?!?!

Here are some great ways to use Coconut Oil:

It can be used as an all-over moisturizer (with excellent results, apply right after showering and throughout the day), but here are eight different ways to take advantage of its natural goodness and treat problem areas.
For Dry & Damaged Hair:
Simply work some into the damaged ends a half hour before showering.
Glossy, Shiny Locks & Frizz Buster:
After washing, drying and styling, rub a small amount into the palms of your hands then lightly work it in.
If dealing with frizz, the above treatment will also help tame it.
Exfoliating Facial Scrub:
Mix with an equal part of baking soda and massage into face. Rinse with warm water to remove baking soda residue.
Dark Elbow Patches:
Rub in each morning and night until desired results are achieved. 
Dry Scalp:
Each night before going to bed, follow these steps:
Part hair one section at a time and rub coconut oil into scalp. A light application is all that’s needed.
Repeat process for entire head then massage for a few minutes to really work it in. Comb out any tangles with a wide tooth comb then put on a shower cap.
Keep the treatment on overnight, cover pillow with a towel just in case the cap shifts in the middle of the night.
Wash with shampoo as usual in the morning.
Repeat daily until satisfied with the results (may take up to 5 weeks before the dryness is gone).
Rashes, Eczema, Psoriasis or Severe Dryness:
Rub a bit into affected area and allow time for your body to absorb the nutrients. Treat daily for as long as needed.
Acne:
Clean face, pat dry then apply a light coating. Leave on overnight (allow at least 15 minutes to absorb it before going to bed). Repeat each night until desired results are achieved (may take some time depending on how severe the acne is).
If dealing with back acne, wash and dry skin then apply some (do this at least 15 minutes before laying down or going to bed).
Now, go get you some Coconut Oil!!  :)

  3. I also love coconut oil! Actually, me and my Mom are using it to moisturize our skin and condition our hair for a couple of years already. It's really effective for us that's why we continuously use it.
