Body Oil : Use it on your skin directly as a moisturizer and massage oil. Try using it right after a shower and mix it directly onto wet skin for hydration or mix a few drops of water to the oil and use before bed. Mixing some water drops helps a better penetration of the oil into the skin layers.
Oil Bath : Apply a generous amount of warm Coconut oil in and around your ears, naval, eyes slowly massaging your whole body. The idea is to loosen up hardened dirt. Pay special attention to roughened areas such as the knees, heels and the nails; and for the hands, focus on elbows and the fingers. Leave the oil for 10-15 minutes. Take a warm water bath using loofah to scrub away all dead cells.
Hydration : Use a few drops on your clean face before bed or your body for hydrating your skin.
Eye Cream : If you have dry under eyes, simply dab on a light layer of coconut oil (use your ring finger to avoid tugging or applying too much pressure) to dry under-eyes to hydrate and protect the skin. It’s best to do this before bed.
For Oral: Oil Pulling: Put a tablespoon of Coconut oil in your mouth. Swish the oil around in your mouth for 15–20 minutes. It is essential to keep swishing and to breathe through the nose. Once done, spit the oil out and normally brush your teeth. Do not swallow the coconut oil.
This can be added to your daily routine. Oil pulling helps in reducing bad breath, preventing cavities, reducing inflammation and improving gum health as well as whitening teeth.
Frizzy Hair Treatment: Rub a small bit of Coconut oil between the pads of your fingers and run through particularly frizzy areas to leave hair looking smooth and polished.
Dandruff Treatment: Take 2-3 tablespoons of warm coconut oil, massage it into your scalp. Let the oil sit on your scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it out with shampoo.
DIY: This oil is great for DIY lip balms, massage oils, body scrubs, etc. You can easily mix essential oils to this pure oil for extra benefits as per your desired result or use it for any other DIY recipe.
Caution: This pure cold pressed Coconut Oil is safe to use, but people who are allergic to Coconut should check with their doctor. You should do a patch skin test before using this oil to rule out any allergies before using it on your skin or hair.
