Coconut Oil :: Life Hack Essential

apparel (4)

Coconut oil is known to be the healthiest dietary oil on the planet.. that’s kinda major.. The list of health benefits and uses are endless!! Coconut oil is a superfood that I use for everything – from cooking, to baking, to skin care and hair care – it is one of those things no one should go without! Read below for more benefits!

Hair Care

Benefits ::

  • supports hair growth
  • natural SPF 2-8
  • improves scalp health
  • treats dandruff
  • eliminates dry, frizzy hair

I use coconut oil on my hair almost everyday. Sometimes I lather the oil on my hands to apply on my hair as a mask over night- I brush through to evenly distribute, and in the morning I use extra shampoo to make sure my hair isn’t too greasy. Other days, after I shower I use a tablespoon amount to rub through the ends of my hair. I have also added it to my shampoo some mornings for hair health.

Soothe & Hydrate Skin

Swap the makeup remover pads, and moisturizer for all natural coconut oil.

Benefits & Uses ::

  • Face moisturizer
  • Makeup remover
  • Add oil to bath to hydrate skin
  • Eye cream
  • Pre & After shave

Healthy Fat to Consume

Can you believe this oil is one of the most natural fats we can consume? It helps decrease body weight and body fat because it contains a relatively large amount of medium-chain fatty acids, this is why it is looked at also as a weight loss aid.

You can use it when cooking instead of oil or butter. Start substituting coconut oil in receipts that call for butter, margarine, or shortening. It can also be added to smoothies.

  • Lowers Cholesterol
  • Promotes Weight Loss
  • Kills viruses
  • Improves memory & brain function
  • Sustains energy & increases metabolism
  • Immunity booster
  • Burned by the body for “fuel” instead of being stored as fat

Only use organic, unrefined coconut oil for optimal benefits.
