The Wonders of Coconut Oil
As we go deeper into winter and the air becomes cold and dry I see myself loading on the coconut oil like no other. Not only do I use coconut oil through the winter as a body moisturizer but I use it all year long for many different things, so I thought I would share with you, the wonders of coconut oil!
*Did you know coconut oil has an SPF of 4 and is also a light exfoliant?
*It also works great as an eye cream, add a few drops of lavender oil and your in business
*Use on your scalp to take away dandruff
*Run a small amount through your hair to make it oh so silky
*As I mentioned earlier it works great as a body moisturizer and can even help with eczema
*It's a great alternative to butter
*Oil Pulling is an ancient aryuvedic practice that involves swishing coconut oil around your mouth for 15 minutes which in turn pulls out any toxins in the body, and can help reduce disease of the gums, while minimizing cavities. Be careful not to swallow!
*Mix with brown sugar and you have an awesome moisturizing body exfoliant for the shower
*When taken internally it can help boost energy. Add chia seeds or bee pollen and you're just a spoon full away from your brain being powered for the day
These are just a few to name. Check it out for yourself and choose an organic brand from your local grocery store.
