I wish that I discovered this miracle in jar years ago, but sadly I didn’t. However, coconut oil is my solution for everything, literally. Its nature’s perfect miracle and I can’t live without it. It has basically replaced so many things in my daily life. Coconut oil is natural, chemical free and possesses so many amazing healing properties, so this post is dedicated to my favorite uses for coconut oil!

Hair conditioning – it works great for repairing dry and damaged hair. I naturally have a dry scalp and I get the Japanese hair treatment, so it’s important to keep my hair moisturized and this does the trick. Coconut oil better penetrates my hair over other oils. I rub coconut oil on my scalp weekly in my hair and let it sit for 30 minutes before showering and rinse it out. Occasionally during the week if I straighten my hair I put it on my ends as well.

Scar reduction- whenever I get a new scar I always cover it in coconut oil because it helps stimulate collagen and reduce the appearance better than any over the counter cream. I’ve used it on surgery scars and new burns, which are now basically nonexistent.

Lubricant – yes coconut oil as personal lubrication! No laughs and giggles we all do this and no this is not a pass to be promiscuous. We know oil and latex don’t work well so I suggest to always practice safe sex, but if you’re in a monogamous relationship and other lubes haven’t worked for you coconut oil is your answer. It’s anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial so it only makes sense, right? Yes and for women who are really sensitive I’ve heard from friends it has helped with them pain, dryness and has prevented infections.

Fight vaginal infections – coconut oil has been shown in laboratories to kill candida yeast. I know this is a touchy subject, but everyone gets yeast infections, from diet, hygiene, intercourse, but whatever the cause the milder forms can be treated with it. I’ve used coconut oil tampons for 3-4 days to cure yeast infections and so have friends and for me I can attest that it works. Obviously, some people have bigger problems and may need to seek out a professional help, but always visit your doctor first before self-diagnosing.

Nail cuticle oil – I’ve used cuticle treatments before, but why spend the money when you can just use what you already have in your home. Coconut oil works amazing for this and my nails beds virtually never tear and are always smooth.

Skin – I use it only occasionally all over my body and feet, the only reason I don’t do it a lot is that it’s a pain to wait for it to dry but it makes my skin so soft and glowing. I use coconut oil on my entire face – on my lips, to remove make up etc. I only use it at night because I sweat and get dirty during the day. My face soaks it up overnight at and it works wonders for keeping my skin smooth and acne free. Consult with your dermatologist before however to get a better understanding on how your skin will react to it, but it has replaced my night cream and eye cream for sure. Make sure to only used unrefined oil on your face though as to not clog your pores.

Lastly one of my favorite beauty products, non-coconut oil related, in my arsenal to deal with my skin are spin brushes. You will never truly be able to clean your face like a spring brush does. The vibration lifts the dirt while the brushes gently exfoliate and cleanse. It has been a life saver in repairing my skin after my birth control disaster. My favorite new brush is from perfect skin because it has many more attachments than other brushes. I love the body brush and pumice stone for getting rid of rough skin; also it comes with a gentle and deep facial cleansing brush. I use it once a day at the end of every night and my face is really smooth and clean from it. If you’re interested in getting one you can click here and use coupon code BC4SKIN to get the brush for $30 instead of $99 and get free shipping in the US.

Well I hope you enjoyed all of my uses for coconut oil and try some yourself. I’m learning everyday more and more things I can do with it. I even give some to little yaffa and it has healed her dry skin. If you have any unique ways of using it I would love to hear about it! As always connect with me I’d love to connect back!
