My favourite coconut oil Dr Bronners Coconut Oil $16.95 available from www.lateralfood.com
1. Cuticle oil & Hand Cream
Coconut oil is the most amazing cuticle oil and hand cream treatment if your hands are cracking and dry during winter, I like to massage it into my cuticles and work outwards to the rest of my hand whilst watching an episode of any Real Housewives of any city.
2. Hair Oil & Treatment
Melt the coconut into a liquid form and let cool down to a safe warm temperature, massage through your hair and scalp coating every strand and leave in for a couple of hours whilst you browse tumblr or skype your best friend. Shampoo and Condition as normal to remove and your locks will be super luscious.
3. Body Scrub with raw sugar
Mix coconut oil into a paste by mashing it up in a bowl, add 3 tablespoons of raw granulated sugar and mix well. Rub into your legs first, massaging in circles to remove any dead skin and then wash off in the shower. It leaves skin smooth and hydrated.
4. Cleansing oil balm to remove makeup
Warm a small amount of coconut oil in your palms and massage in to your face, makeup will lift away. Then using a damp warm face washer wipe the coconut oil and makeup off your face. It is especially good for removing eye makeup.
5. To heal scars and stretch marks
Coconut oil rubbed into stretch marks on a pregnant belly is fantastic. Also if you have a scab or graze rubbing coconut oil over it will help it heal without leaving too much of a scar.
