The Power of Coconut Oil.


I use coconut oil all of the time, and for a lot of different things! I love coconut oil because it has no end of uses. So, here are a few examples of what it can be used for.

1. Hair!
I put coconut oil on the hair before I wash it. It can also be used as a hair mask - sleep in it and then wash it out in the morning! It's great for conditioning the hair, and it doesn't matter how much is on the hair because it all gets washed out.

2. Skin!
I use coconut oil as a moisturiser. I often use it before bed, and wake up with super smooth skin! I think that this is one of it's best uses. I would recommend this, without a doubt.

3. Hands!
I use coconut oil as a hand cream. I also put it on the cuticles for healthier nails! It's often said that the hands are first to show signs of ageing, so it's important to take care of them.

4. Lips!
I use coconut oil on the lips as it keeps them feeling nice and soft. It's important to protect the lips against the sun, and other weather conditions. It's a must have in the Summer!

5. Make up!
I use coconut oil to remove make up, and it leaves the skin feeling good afterwards.

There are a lot more uses of coconut oil, the list goes on and on, but these are the things that I use it for. I bought a jar of it from Holland and Barrett, which has lasted for ages! I use it a lot, and there's still so much left. I would recommend this, for sure. It's an all time favourite, for me.

What else can coconut oil be used for? I'd love to hear other uses that aren't on the list.


  1. Excellent tips! I do coconut oil pulling to get rid of all the harmful bacteria in my mouth and it leaves my mouth feeling squeaky clean! :]
