I am a Coconut freak! From the fresh juice with baby coconut meat, (which if I HAD to choose one thing to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it) to the homemade skincare/haircare mixtures made around my house, there is always two jars, one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom. Consumed and slathered all over my body on a daily basis, definitely cannot love without this product. Organic, virgin, raw, unrefined, non-gmo Coconut Oil.
In the past few years, I have been less into products that have a million cancer causing synthetics in them. So I’ve been sampling a range of all natural recipes around the house to see what works best for me without a load of difficulty and fuss 🙂
A few uses:
*Body/Facial/Hair Moisturizer- I literally put on my body and face, all over, every day. Tip, get an aloe plant. I cut off a little 2 inch size piece and slice daggers off the sides, slice through the middle so it’s like you are opening a book of aloe gel/juice. Rub all over face and body once done with bathing, then slather coconut oil all over. It helps absorb the coconut oil so you’re not sticky and greasy. Also, all that goodness in the aloe juice soaks up into your body, making it soft, healthy and supple. It is a great deep conditioner for hair as well. This is all I use and my skin has never felt and looked so healthy.
*Sunscreen- The above coconut type contains a all natural 4-10SPF. Use daily for maximum benefits, you can also mix a little powdered zinc oxide mineral (find on amazon) in the oil to make the SPF higher.
*Anti-fungal/Antibacterial properties, so it can be used as deodorant if you aren’t working out like crazy. Oil pulling for 5 minutes a day helps pull toxins out of the body and Bonus: is a natural teeth whitener, just swoosh around like mouthwash.
*Anti-inflammatory Fresh fruit smoothies are a great treat to sneak in some healthy fats, usually get a tablespoon in those guys!
It has sooooo many more awesome qualities, but I won’t be able to hit them all. Next focus on coconuts though, will be food. Coconut based Curries are a straight up carnival in your mouth. Your taste buds will be #BLESSED.
