Coconut Oil! How I love Thee Let Me Count The Ways3:00:00 PM
I have been wanting to write a post gushing all about my love coconut oil! This little gem has so many good qualities that has you hooked the second you try it. Coconut oil has moisturizing and anti-aging properties because it is full of Vitamin E.
This Vitamin E helps aid eczema, sunburn, and psoriasis. It's also a anti fungal and antiviral. It helps keep my skin smooth and moisturized in the freezing cold winter. Coconut oil also contains three fatty acids: caprylic, capric, and lauric acid. This amazing oil helps make hair stronger, softer and helps that your scalp. I enjoy using it as a hair mask to moisturize my dry hair.
Coconut oil is a great to use as shaving oil because the razor glides effortlessly over skin and it prevents ingrown hairs and razor burn. This is a great oil to cook with because it has a high smoke point. Coconut oil is inexpensive and found at most grocery and health food stores. This is by far my desert island item because it does everything, you can use it as a moisturizer, cook with it, shave with it, it's cruelty free and organic, and even use it as an oil mouth rinse for whiter teeth and breath.
