"I'm in love with the COCO!"

Not not THAT coco! I'm talking about coconut oil! Yes girls, this is my secret weapon and I use it for everything, literally. Raw coconut oil is full of amazing nutritional properties and there are over 100 ways on how you can incorporate it into your everyday life, but I'm going to share with you a few of my personal favourite ways to use coconut oil!

1) Removing make up - I have only just started to use this technique about a week ago, but I've absolutely been loving it. Just get a tiny bit of the raw oil and start massaging it into your skin and watch all your make up dissolve. And your waterproof mascara too! I've thrown away all my miceller waters and other cleansing oils, can you believe it?

2) Moisturiser - Although I don't particularly enjoy the smell of smelling like a bounty chocolate bar before bed, (if I'm not being lazy) I slather my entire body in coconut oil as it leaves it feeling super soft and nourished for the next morning. I also use a teeny tiny bit and pat it on to my face as my night-time moisturiser. But be careful and use a small amount because you don't want to clog your pores.

3) Oil-Pulling - It improves your oral health and hygiene as it detoxifies your teeth and gums. This method has been going on for years and years but has only become more popular recently. Oil pulling is basically 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil being swished around in your mouth for 20 minutes. Rinse your mouth well then brush well. Apparently, the timing is key. 

4) Cooking - It's a healthier alternative to your normal cooking oils because it's beneficial for your body's health and well-being. It makes everything taste better too!

5) Hair mask - I've been using coconut oil on my hair for years. It strengthens your hair, helps it to grow faster and also makes your hair look silky and shiny! When I'm feeling a bit cray cray, I sometimes mix other oils such as castor oil or almond oil with my coconut oil and leave it in my hair for a couple of hours and then wash it out.

So there's a few of my favourite ways of using coconut oil. Let's just say you can use it for just about everything! 

What are your favourite ways to use it? Comment below, I would love to know!
