12 Little Known Uses For Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil Eye Makeup Remover: Coconut oil is the ideal eye makeup remover because it will moisturize the delicate skin around the eye while removing stubborn eye makeup such as eyeliner and mascara.

Coconut Oil Aftershave: Coconut oil is the perfect aftershave because it has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a natural skin moisturizer.

Coconut Oil Deodorant: Coconut oil can be used to make natural deodorants. Simply mix 1tbsp of cornstarch, 1tbsp of baking soda, and your favorite essential oil into 1tbsp of coconut oil and rub into your armpits.

Coconut Oil Body Scrub: You can use coconut oil to make a luxurious and highly cost effective body scrub. Just mix a little sugar and your favorite essential oil into some coconut oil and you have a natural body scrub that will exfoliate your skin without drying it out.

Coconut Oil Acne Treatment: Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer by people suffering from acne because coconut oil is naturally antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory in nature and has been shown to moisturize the skin without clogging pores.

Coconut Oil Skin Ointment: Many topical creams for common skin conditions such as psoriasis, and eczema have a terrible smell and contain harsh chemicals that have been linked to cancer. The good news, however, is that the moisturizing and anti-inflammatory components of coconut oil make it the ideal alternative topical cream for mild psoriasis and eczema.

Coconut Oil Chapstick: In the winter, protect your lips from chapping by rubbing a little coconut oil into them. Coconut oil has an SPF of 5 which will help protect your lips from UV rays as well.

Coconut Oil Nipple Cream: Coconut oil is the ideal nipple cream for nursing mothers who experience cracked, sore or bleeding nipples but don’t want to use a medicated cream. Coconut oil will help heal the nipples by moisturizing the sensitive skin of the areola and helping speed up the healing process. Plus, the antimicrobial properties of coconut oil can help prevent infection while being completely safe for the baby to ingest.

Coconut Oil Mosquito Repellant: There is a very good reason why the people of the Caribbean love coconut oil. Coconut oil can serve as a natural mosquito repellant simply by making your skin too slippery for mosquitoes to land on. This is especially true in humid environments. To increase the effectiveness of coconut oil as a natural insect repellant try adding essential oils such as lemongrass, catnip and peppermint, which have also been shown to help repel insects.

Coconut Oil Diaper Rash Cream: Coconut oil is a highly effective and all natural diaper rash cream. The moisturizing, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory components of coconut oil help sooth and heal your baby’s skin while minimizing pain, much the same way as Aloe Vera helps minimize the pain of sunburns. Furthermore, coconut oil forms a waterproof barrier that helps prevent future diaper rashes. Coconut oil is also safe to use with cloth diapers.

Coconut Oil For Your Dog’s Dry Skin: Feeding your dog just a tablespoon of coconut oil, once a week, especially in the winter, will keep his skin moisturized and his coat looking healthy and shiny.

Coconut Oil For Healthy Hair: Coconut oil can be use as a leave-in conditioner, hot oil deep conditioning treatment, defrizzer and hair gel. The nutrients in coconut oil can help strengthen hair and reverse the damage caused by heat and environmental factors. Many cultures who regularly use coconut oil also believe that it can help hair grow long and prevent it from turning gray, too soon. I am not sure if that is true, but I do know that coconut oil is one of the Caribbean’s best kept secret to beautiful hair.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.
