10 health and beauty tips using coconut oil

I have a new obsession with coconut oil! I know it’s nothing new and many of you probably already use it but besides it’s obvious uses here are some others that are good to know….

1.) HAIR MASK

A DIY hair mask with kitchen ingredients to help condition and restore dry hair. {Recipe found HERE}

2.) Diaper Rash Cream

Coconut oil has antifungal and antimicrobial properties and is ideal for making diaper rash cream.

Beeswax 1/8 cup (1/2 oz.- granules are easiest, but not necessary) Coconut Oil 2/3 cup (4 1/2 oz.) Zinc Oxide powder 3/4 Tbsp.

3.) Burn relief and scar reduction.

I had a recent run in with my curling iron! OUCH! but thanks to coconut oil, my burn healed better than ever. Coconut oil in itself has a cooling effect on the skin and when applied generously will keep skin supple, moisturized and will prevent peeling, blistering and scarring.

4.) EYELASH THICKENER

Fractionated Coconut Oil and doTERRA’s Lemon essential oil.
Fractionated Coconut Oil has a natural pulling action that draws out impurities. The oil enters the eyelash follicles and works to stimulate regrowth.

5.) acne treatment

6.) FACE MASK

equal parts raw honey and coconut oil {recipe found HERE}

7.) sunscreen

must apply more often than traditional sunscreens but has no added chemicals for your skin to absorb. Lets your body tan naturally.

8.) DIY lip balm

AZ0A9009

I am swooning over TWO recipes for your own soft lip flavor balm …. PUMPKIN SPICE and CHOCOLATE MINT. I might lick my lips all day wearing either of these ;)

9.) eye make up remover / wrinkle cream

apply on your eyes to remove your make up – rinse with warm water – reapply under and around eyes to reduce wrinkles and moisturize the skin

10.)insect repellant

I mix coconut oil with peppermint oil extract {and if you can find it citronella oil} and rub it all over exposed skin. It keeps insects off.
