Organic Coconut Oil

Raw coconut oil would have previously been something I saw in a health food shop and walked past, without a second glance. But it seems I have been wrong all these years and have missed out on one of the best multiuse products available!

This tub of 100% organic raw coconut oil retails at £14 for 500g, what a bargain! The tub is full to the brim and with so many uses for it you will be using all around the house!

Let’s start with my favourite uses, which I can attest to:

Conditioner – I applied this to my hair and left it for about 30 minutes before
rinsing and then washing as normal. After drying I couldn’t believe how soft my
hair was. It has 100% never felt that soft before in my life and it smelt great
too! The coconut oil is in solid form inside the jar but as soon as it meets
the heat of your hand it begins to melt and turns in to oil. You don’t need
much at all to cover your locks!

Cooking – Instead of using oil to fry my meat I have been using this
instead, primarily for Kormas. It’s fantastic, not only is it healthier than
using oil or butter but it adds a hint of coconut goodness to the meat (and
smells yummy whilst frying too!)

Stress Relief– Has your day in the office got to you? Just
rub in to your temple in a circular motion, the scent of coconuts will soon
relax you.

But that’s not it, there are so many uses I would need several pages. Here are a few more I have found on Google, some I have tried myself too:

Dusting, cleaning the bathroom, Make-up Brush cleaner, Eyelash Strengthener, Reduce spot redness, combat stretch marks, helps to heal new tattoos, curbs appetites, sore throat relief, chapped lips, cleaning your car, lubricate scissors when cutting sticky things, deodorant, remove chewing gum, use in pastries and soups, prevent hangnails and ingrown nails, personal lubricant.. and I am sure there are many more!

See what I mean about it being a product you simply need in your house? It’s fantastic!

    this is such a great post!i discovered coconut oil earlier on in the year and i wonder why i never used it before!i also use it as a conditioner and for cooking, i also used it in the summer as a body lotion after a day at the beach, i found it soothed my skin. i also do this trick: i use a generous amount as a hand cream and the put on my marygolds and wash the dishes with hot water.O EM GEE, afterwards my hands feel softer than baby hands!like i have been to the spa! 😀
