I've mainly been using this in my hair as the weather is making it so dry and frizzy at the moment. If I leave it on my hair overnight and then wash it out in the morning it makes such a big difference and my hair is left feeling a lot softer and smoother as well as being easier to manage. There are hundreds of ways to use it though so I thought I'd share a few with you today.
Firstly you can cook with it, it can even be used as a dairy-free replacement to butter which I had no idea about! It's gluten, dairy and wheat free so could be a great option for those with food intolerances. Next up is that you can use it as a body lotion, I've used it on my hands a lot before I go to sleep and it honestly leaves them feeling a lot softer and in better condition so I'll definitely have to try it as a body lotion as well. The third way that I found you can use it is that it makes a very good eye makeup remover apparently, I'm yet to try this one for myself but a lot of people seem to swear by it. One way that I also want to try using it for is to get rid of stretch marks, I know there are lots of different creams out there that claim to help and I've always been sceptical but this is a lot more natural so hopefully it will work better! Finally you could also use it to make your own body scrub, this is something I've wanted to do for a little while so looks like I've got myself a little post Christmas project to do!
If you haven't given Coconut Oil a go yet I'd really recommend picking up some as the ways to use it seem to be endless!
