9 Reasons to Keep Coconut Oil in Your Bathroom

9 Reasons To Keep Coconut Oil In Your Bathroom

  1. Oil Pulling – Have you swished with coconut oil? Oil pulling is a traditional way to cleanse the mouth of bacteria. Start your day with oil pulling by swishing a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth. Try to swish for at least 10 minutes. If you can, swish up to 20 minutes. Learn more about oil pulling here.
  2. Wash Your Face. It’s called oil cleansing and it’s amazing! It may sound strange but oil can actually help clean your face. I wash my face with coconut oil almost every night. Learn more about oil cleansing here.
  3. Shave Your Legs . That’s right! Coconut oil is a girls best friend when it comes to shaving. If you want baby soft legs, rub a small amount of coconut oil on your legs before shaving.
  4. Hair Treatment – Coconut oil helps reduce protein loss when used as a pre or post treatment. I swing towards pre-treating my hair by adding a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the roots  and work the oil down to the ends. I then leave the coconut oil on for an hour before rinsing.
  5. Skin moisturizer. I use whipped coconut oil body butter almost daily! Coconut oil is known to help reduce scaring, stretch marks and prevent sagging skin. It’s a natural “miracle” cream! Try my whipped coconut oil body butter here.
  6.  Rash and Burn Cream. Coconut oil helps to sooth rashes and burns. I’ve witnessed this when my children have had diaper rashes. A small dab of coconut oil has always helped to reduce and even eliminate diaper rash.
  7. Eye Makeup Remover. Another wonderful reason to have coconut oil on hand in the bathroom is for removing makeup! Wash your face and then use coconut oil to remove the remaining eye makeup.
  8. Cuticle Treatment. Coconut oil does wonders for your nails! Massage your finger nails and toe nails with it as often as you like to help keep rugged cuticles tame. The anti-fungal properties of coconut oil are also helpful for keeping  toes clear of fungal infections.
  9. Frizz Tamer. Coconut oil is my go-to when I need to tame my daughters beautifully wild hair. Only use a small amount though. Too much coconut oil will leave your hair with an oily look.
