The Many Uses Of Coconut Oil!

I, like everyone else it seems is obsessed with coconut oil. I use it for so many things and not just in the kitchen so I thought I would share with you the many ways I use it.

First up I of course use it in cooking…frying, roasting, baking, the lot! It can be used for so much. It’s also great for making vegan fudge or chocolate! (Ill make sure to add recipes on those soon).
Coconut oil is also a great beauty product, the one thing I use it everyday for is removing make up. I massage it into dry skin then use a warm flannel to remove it, this leaves me with clean baby soft skin and I’m convinced it’s made my eyelashes in better condition too.
That leads me on to using it as a deep moisture mask when your skin is feeling parched. A layer of this left on the skin for a while leaves it feeling revived and moisturised. The same goes for the cuticles and lips.
Coconut oil makes a great hair serum, taming frizz, moisturising and giving your hair a shine. Again it can be used as a deep conditioner over night for really dry hair.
It is a fantastic alternative to soap or shaving foam to shave my legs. It helps the razor glide over the skin plus you are left with silky soft pins after.
Something I don’t do as often as I like is oil pulling. You take a spoonful of coconut oil and swish it round your mouth and pull it trough your teeth for 10 minutes or so. It helps your teeth feel extra clean and also naturally whitens them.

I am sure there are many more ways to use it but these are my favourites. I would love to know in what ways you use coconut oil?
