Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
You may have heard the buzz,
but have you tried what everyones talking about?
You’d think it was the answer to every
skin, health, and beauty question—and it just might be!
Boost Your Energy
Drop a tablespoon in your breakfast smoothie, or mix it into a glass of water with chia seeds for a healthy alternative to espresso or caffeinated energy drink.
2 tablespoons per day are proven to rev up your metabolism.
Coconut oil contains medium instead of the more commonly found long chain fatty acids, which are metabolized differently than most fats and used for energy which, if consumed regularly, really can decrease the amount of fat in your abdomen.
Regular coconut oil consumption has been shown to support healthy thyroid function.
Although you may not be ready to give up your Neosporin, coconut oil can even be used as a topical protector for wounds, shielding them with a thin chemical layer from outside contaminants. You can apply a small amount of coconut oil to small scrapes and cuts.
Coconut oil is the perfect choice for a massage oil. Not too greasy and with a relaxing scent.
Hair Care Purposes:
Leave-in Conditioner (Overnight)
Rub a small amount of oil into hair (mostly at ends), comb through and put hair in a loose bun before bed, and wash out in the morning.
Defrizzer of Split Ends
Just put a tiny amount on your hands and run them through the frizzy areas.
Rub your hands together with a little bit of coconut oil on them and run them through your static-y hair.
Hydrate Your Skin (and Cuticles)
Coconut oil makes an excellent moisturizer. You can use it everywhere—even your face—and rub any extra into your cuticles. It delivers natural protection that’s equivalent to about SPF 5 or less, so even if you do use it in place of lotion, follow up with actual sunscreen.
Close shave and a moisturizer at the same time.
Combine coconut oil with Himalayan crystal salt and apply to face each night. Washing it off is optional.
Combine coconut oil and sugar.
Apply directly after showering.
Fade Age Spots
Rub on hands or other areas daily.
A great moisturizer to use after you’ve gotten a bit too much sun.
After you wash your face, massage a light layer on your skin.
Put in a spray bottle and bring to beach. Spray on to keep skin moisturized.
Dry Feet Treatment
Mix with salt to form a foot scrub.
Helps manage the dry skin on your elbows.
Apply a small amount on cheekbones over makeup.
If it’s solid, swipe it over your eyes and face to remove your makeup, otherwise dip a cotton pad in, then swipe. Healthier, stronger and longer eye lashes are just a bonus!
