My HOLY GRAIL Beauty Item

No, it's not a high end makeup product, it's not even a low end either. You won't find this at Ulta or Sephora but can be purchased at your local grocery store...what could this magic product be? None other than COCONUT OIL! This oil is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins and has antibacterial properties as well. You will be amazed at the benefits!
Coconut oil is becoming super popular for beauty purposes but it's great for cooking too! It starts off as a solid but when you rub it through your fingers it quickly melts into more of a liquid. Just make sure to buy the Unrefined Virgin coconut oil - this type isn't processed in any way and is in it's most natural form.

I've mentioned in a previous blog that it makes a great hair mask - just saturate your entire head with this oil and leave it on for a few hours (or even better, leave it on overnight). Then just wash it off in the morning and your hair will be silky smooth. Now, other than a hair mask, I've listed some other uses for coconut oil (there are MANY more but these are just some of my favorites!)

-Use as an eye make up remover (this will moisturize your delicate eye area as well!)

-Use as a face moisturizer after you cleanse

-Helps prevent acne and helps with acne scarring

-Prevents stretch marks & wrinkles

-Use as an all over lotion, especially if you have dry skin, this will work wonders

-Can be used as a face mask (also great for people with dry skin)

-Use as a scalp treatment if you have dandruff

-Great as a cuticle oil

-Great for cooking!

-Protects against cancer

-Helps with intestinal/IBS problems

-Eating 1-2 tablespoons of raw coconut oil per day helps get rid of belly fat

-Aids in heart health


  1. didnt know coconut oil has that many benefits but still, i dont like the smell of it :/

  2. I usually hate the smell and taste of coconuts. But for some reason the smell/taste of coconut oil doesn't bother me at all!
