Why keep coconut oil in your bathroom?

Oil Pulling

Swishing a little bit of coconut oil around in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes is effective at removing bacteria. Some believe it cleanses your blood but there’s basically no evidence to back that up.

Carrier Oil

If you’re feeling a little bit more stressed than usual, mixing a little essential oil into coconut oil and rubbing onto your skin can be soothing and relaxing.

Shaving Cream Replacement

Whether you’re shaving legs, face, pits, or naughty bits, coconut oil is great. It moisturizes skin, reduces the likeliness of razor burn, and leaves your skin feeling young and spry.

Hair Conditioning Treatment

Coconut oil is great for treating protein loss and fried hair. Use about half a tablespoon of coconut oil and massage into hair, starting at the roots then down to the ends. Allow the coconut oil to sit for a bit before washing. I usually let it sit for around 20-30 minutes. You’ll want to use hotter water to help rinse it out. Coconut oil becomes a liquid when warmed.

Skin Moisturizing

As we covered before, coconut oil is great for shaving because of its skin moisturizing properties. In the winter, I usually put some on my lips and elbows to keep chapping to a minimum. It’s good for any part of your skin though.

Burn and Rash Cream

Applying coconut oil to burns and rashes is very effective. Give it a try on diaper rash if you have young ones. Or have diaper rash yourself. No judgment.

Makeup Remover

Coconut oil is one of the best makeup removers out there. Simply wash your face with coconut oil and the makeup will come right off easily.

Cuticle Treatment

Like skin, coconut oil is great for your nails. Simply massage fingernails and toenails with oil to strengthen them. It’s also a good anti-fungal alternative.

Taming The Frizz

If you’re like me, you’re cursed with big, curly, frizzy hair. Using coconut oil in the shower before washing your hair helps reduce some of that frizz.
