The Many Uses of Coconut Oil!

     Ever since I was little I have loved Summer. The warm sun shining down and the smell of Coconut Oil. There was just something about it that put a smile on my face.

Over the last couple of years I have grown to love Coconut oil even more. There are so many wonderful ways that you can incorporate it into your daily routine. Here are a few of my favorites:

#1. Hair Treatment– Coconut Oil is amazing for transforming your dull, tired, over-processed locks. When I need to add shine or moisture to my hair, I take a few tablespoons and work through from my roots to the ends (Depending on how thick and long your hair is you may require less) . I section my hair so I can have an even coat throughout. Once I’m done I wrap my hair up in a bun and leave on for as long as I can. After several hours I wash, condition and dry my hair. Sometimes it may take 2 Shampoo’s to rinse depending on the brand.

I don’t recommend leaving it overnight unless you sleep with a wrap on your head as the oil can get on your pillow (Shower Caps work well).  This treatment makes my hair feel incredibly soft

#2. Sore Muscles and Dry Skin– When ever I have a had a great workout and my muscles are sore , there is nothing more rewarding than a hot bath with some Coconut Oil. I add a teaspoon-tablespoon to the water and massage the water into my skin. Not only does this work for my muscles, it’s amazing at moisturizing the skin. Your as good as new when your done. Be careful while in the bath as well as  getting out as it can be a little slippery. Trust me though it’s so worth it!

To add one more little treat while soaking in the bath, you can add some coconut oil to your face and use as a mask. I recommend applying to a clean face and avoid the eye area. The great thing about Coconut oil is you don’t need to rinse it off, just rub in when your all done!

Coconut Oil has been used for many years for many purposes around the world and has many health benefits, especially when used for cooking.

Since I’m on this Coconut Oil kick, I have to include 2 of my favorite Body Butters.

The first is The Body Shop’s Coconut Body Butter. It contains Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter. Not only does this product smell delicious, I love the way it glides on my skin leaving it smooth and nourished. A Product that I will use through the years.

 

 

 

 

The next product is almost the same, but I like to use this when I’m going out and need that little bit of glow. It has a subtle shimmer and is made with virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter and shea butter to moisturize.
