Coconut oil is lately super popular in households all over the world and no wonder because this magical ingredient can help you on a daily basis in every aspect of your life. Did you know it can kill Candida, balance blood sugar, mosture your skin, burns fat, etc. Stay with me and get the best advices on how you can use coconut oil.
1. Lip balm
Chapped lips can be extremely painful to kids, that is why you should give extra attention to lips especially in winter season. Try to avoid cheap lip balms because sometimes they can be packed with toxic ingredients. Mix 2 tbs of coconut oil, 2 tbs of beeswax, 1 tbs of shea butter in a nonstick saucepan and warm slowly until it is melted. Use a small funnel to refill used lip balm containers and leave it for 6 hours.
2. Makeup remover
Use natural remover instead of store bought, naturally moisture and smooth at the same time. “Coconut oil solubilizes or breaks up water-resistant substances used in eye shadow and mascara, releasing them from the skin and lashes,” says cosmetic chemist Joseph Cincotta. Scoop out a little of coconut oil and rub it between your fingers to warm it up and melt it. Apply it on your face and wipe it off with a dry cotton ball.
3. Acne killer
Acnes are not a problem only to teenagers but many adults have issues with them also.Try to mix our magical oil (aka coconut oil) with tree oil and raw honey and apply it on your face as a facial mask. Rinse it off with warm water.
Use coconut oil as a natural sunscreen and sunburn remedy. Spread it all over your body and reapply it if needed. In case you get sunburnes, just rub coconut oil gently on affected areas.
5. Hair de-tangler
If your kid has longer hair and likes to play with it, then you know how much time it takes to de-tangle it when it gets nutty. Apply oil between your palms and rub it onto wet hair before combining through.
6. Gum remover
Did you know you can use coconut oil for removing gum from kids hair or even furniture? Just apply oil on gum to help it let up and remove it easily. Coconut oil won’t leave any stains or colors.
7. Leather polish
First clean your surface with a dry cloth to brush off dirt or dust, and then use a bit of coconut oil and rub it on in a circular motion. You can use it on other surfaces too, like wood, granite, metal, etc. It will help you reduce dust and cover up scratches at the same time.
8. Laudry Detergent
If you have kids with sensitive skin or prone to allergies you should reconsider using laundry detergents you bought in the local supermarket. Make your own detergent that will not irritate your skin or have a negative effect on fabric. Combine coconut oil with lye, water and add few drops of essential oils of your choice.
If you haven’t yet, then you absolutely should switch to a healthier oil and use coconut oil in your kitchen. Coconut oil will begin to liquefy at 76°F, so you shouldn’t be worried if it starts to forming liquid on top of it. At room temperature coconut oil is solid, so it can get super hard in the winter months. Coconut oil will solidify if added to cold ingredients, so make sure all ingredients in the recipe are at room temperature before you add the coconut oil to it.
