24 Amazing Uses For Coconut Oil

Coconuts. Who knew these brown fruits with a sack-like texture were so incredible? Who also knew that botanically, the coconut is a drupe, not a nut. WTF? Anyway, all you need to know is that cocodrupe is incredible. We’re talking super health benefits, skin benefits and can transform everyday recipes.

Here’s 24 ways to successfully incorporate CO in your life…

Cover your hair in coconut oil before you dye it and it will help to reduce damage and will make your colour last longer.

Mix it with raw sugar to make a natural face and body exfoliator.

Smooth it over irritated, or eczema-prone skin to smooth and help treat it.

Use it as a hair mask.

Put some coconut oil on a cotton pad and wipe over your face to remove makeup (it’ll even get to work on fine lines!).

Put a few drops in your normal hand moisuriser and it’ll leave skin super smooth and it’ll help soften your cuticles too.

Use on dry, split ends to help ease breakage and maintain softness.

Use a pea-sized amount on towel-dried hair to reduce frizz when you dry your hair.

Mix it into your foundation and whip it up (soufflé style) to transform your foundation into a less heavy, tinted moisturiser-like finish. Perfect for summer!

Use it in cooking instead of butter, simply melt the oil and voila, you have a butter substitute.

Who needs expensive shaving cream when you can use coconut oil?

Mix antibacterial liquid soap with coconut oil (which has natural antibacterial properties) to clean your makeup brushes and keep the bristles soft. 

If you wanna have a natural approach to solving B.O issues, wipe some coconut oil on your armpits. The oil contains lauric acid which can help kill the bacteria that annoyingly causes that sweat smell.

Get stronger, longer Bambi eyelashes by dabbing  some oil on a cotton pad and gently wiping on your eye lashes at night.
