Hey beautiful people,
I hope you’re week is coming along well:
On today’s post i will be telling you about 1 of the natural products i love using.
Coconut oil is on top of my list.
There are so many toxic substances in the daily products we use and these increase our chances of developing diseases and health conditions such as cancer. If you can, its always best to adopt better alternatives-in this case, healthier alternatives- to help mitigate the health conditions
The oil can be used in the following ways:
As a moisturizer– Its good after an evening shower where you want your skin to just relax without exposing your it to more toxins than it has been exposed to during the day . For someone like me who has dry skin, it works quite well on my body. It absorbs well into the skin so you don’t have to worry about it messing your clothes.It also believed to have antioxidants which make the skin look younger
Massages-You can also massage the oil into the body when you feel tired and need a small home massage.
Warmth– Personally, it helps keep me warm- so if you have cold feet or you are cold at night, you can try this and see if it the oil works for you.
For hair– This also helps to moisturize the scalp and provides a nice shine to the hair. With the essential proteins it has, its good for damaged hair or growing your hair. I have seen my hair grow longer since i started using it.
Deodorant– Majority of the deodorants and antiperspirants in the market contain a lot of chemicals and that is why coconut oil is a better option as it does not contain the toxins and is good for the skin. You can use coconut by itself or make home-made deo with sheer butter, corn starch and baking soda.
I started with the home-made deo but now i use purely coconut oil.
Also consider having an armpit detox before you starting to use the natural deodorants-this will help get rid of some of the chemicals that come with years of using deos and antiperspirants ;and also help reduce then uncomfortable reactions that may come with switching from chemical to natural deos or in this case- the coconut oil.

Oil pulling– This is whereby you swish the oil in your mouth and for a few minutes and then spit it out. This helps to kill the bacteria in the mouth and you will begin to see your teeth become whiter/ the plaque starts to reduce. For improved gum and teeth health you can try this out.
Note: Do not spit the oil in the sink as this can block/ clog the drainage system; you can use the bin instead.
These are just a few of the many benefits of the oil. So if you have been looking for a good natural product for your skin and hair or even teeth; give coconut oil a try and see how it works for you.
Until Next time…
