Imagine, an oil one can cook with as well as wear. Coconut oil is more than just a moisturizer. It is packed with vitamins D, E, and K. This miracle worker can transform skin and hair in minutes. It can be used as an oil or a balm. This food source can turn liquid about 75 degrees and remains a silky solid at lower temperatures.

If you have never tried cooking with this product, you should! You will be amazed! But, of course, it is not just for cooking, as previously mentioned.

Coconut oil can be used as an eye makeup remover. Just dab a small amount on a cotton pad and use it to remove mascara and other eye makeup.

Coconut oil can be used as a frizz fighter, a curl tamer, and a deep conditioner. Rub a tiny bit between one’s hands and use it as an anti-frizz hair serum. As a curl tamer, run a touch through natural ringlets to encourage to perfect amount of curl and as a deep conditioner, use a thick coat of coconut oil and leave it on for several hours under a shower cap. It will transform dry, damaged hair.

Coconut oil can be used as a face moisturizer, a body scrub, and as a lip balm. Smooth onto face as a moisture-rich cream that harnesses vitamin E to heal skin naturally. As a body scrub, mix equal parts sugar and keep in the shower for a moisturizing, exfoliating body scrub. Finally, as a lip balm, keep some in a small tin as a natural lip protector.

Wow! What an amazing product. Well, folks, I’m definitely going to stock up on this one. After all, coconut oil does have a long shelf life.
