 Here are 10 Ways Coconut Oil can change your life and for the better.

Hopefully, save you some money, in the long run, also….

I have heard so much about Coconut Oil this summer. Everywhere I looked someone was suggesting how

it works wonders for your hair so I was just curious. What else does this wonder oil do?

Can you use it for other DIY projects at home?

I did my research and guess what?

Coconut Oil is helpful in more ways than cooking and hair conditioner you might not think that it could

be so beneficial in so many different ways but it really can be…….

 

Hydrating deep conditioner ~

Mix one cup of hot water and two tablespoons of coconut oil (you may need to use more if your hair is longer).

Once it settles massage it into your scalp and hair, comb it through with a wide-toothed comb, wrap it into a bun,

and put a shower cap over it. Let it sit for an hour, or some people leave it in overnight if your hair needs a

good repairing, then rinse thoroughly with warm water for shiny, beautiful hair!

Eye makeup remover

~ Soak a cotton ball in the oil and carefully without getting in your eye wipe your face to

remove stubborn, waterproof makeup.

Exfoliator

Mix 3 tablespoons of coconut oil

and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a jar for a DIY exfoliator

that might feel a little funny but it will leave your skin

refreshed and glowing.

 

 

  Body moisturizer

~ Coconut oil is great for softening your skin and treating stubborn cracked heels and dry elbows.

Winter can wreak havoc on your skin that tends to get rough. Try to keep those tough area good and moisturized

from the start and it will be a lot easy to manage and keep smooth through the winter months.

 

Natural lip balm

~ Coconut oil can help to heal dry, chapped lips in a flash!

Scar treatment

The vitamin E and antioxidants in the oil help heal scars and smooth out skin for a clearer complexion.

 

 Cuticle cream

Applying a small amount of coconut oil directly onto your cuticles helps to keep your nails soft but strong!

 

Natural deodorant

~ Try making your own homemade deodorant stick with coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda, and arrowroot

or simply just apply coconut oil to the areas you sweat the most.

Hair frizz eliminator 

~ Apply a small amount of oil throughout your hair focusing on your ends and this will leave your

curls it shiny and easy to manage.

Makeup brush cleaner~

~ Heat a few tablespoons of coconut oil for about 30 seconds, then dip your brushes in it.
  

Rub them on a paper towel to remove the makeup, and rinse under warm water.

Oh yeah! Don’t worry about bacteria because coconut oil will kill any antifungal bacteria that

may be lurking behind in your makeup brushes.

So now when you’re thinking about buying a bottle of coconut oil to treat your hair and you’re

thinking it may be a waste of money or time, think again cause, now you know just how useful it truly can be in your life!

    Coconut oil is the BEST for makeup removal and brush cleaning, and it’s still really gentle to use. I love it.

  • Lauren Edwards

    I love using coconut oil as a deep conditioner but I never thought of using it in all those other ways! Since I have a huge jar of it i’ll definitely be giving it more use!

    • Using it as a makeup remover has been one way I like using it other than for my hair. I am hoping to add some growth to my hair.

  • Kendra Sanders

    I never knew there were this many uses for coconut oil! I currently use it for my hair but I’ll have to try it as a makeup remover now

    • Have you seen growth from using it on your hair? I just started it I am hoping for the best!

    I LOVE coconut oil. I’m a guy so many of these things I don’t need it for, but I have been using it as moisturizer, lip balm, and deodorant. I also use it as mouth wash and a daily supplement (1T a day.)

    • Me either! I am trying it on my hair to see if it really helps it grow. I’m hoping it works for me!

    • Wow who would have thought one simple oil could do so much?

  • Pia Cruz

    I had no idea that you could use coconut oil in so many different way. As it turns out, I’ve got a jar sitting in the pantry that I may just have to pull out and put to use!

    I had no idea coconut oil could also be used to make natural deodorant and some of these other things. I will try them out. Thanks for this.

    • That’s interesting! I need to add that to my list. Thanks for the tip!

    I have read you can use it to do oil pulling to whiten your teeth too.
