10 ways to use coconut
oil on your body

By now, we all know the overall benefits of coconut oil. But did you know, that coconut oil can also be used on the body? It is really versatile and you will be surprised how easy it is, to use a natural product instead of commercial (and often very unhealthy) products.

Below you can find a range of how coconut oil can be used as a body treatment.

1. Body lotion

If you want to have a natural body lotion free from additives and perfume, you can simply use coconut oil. Just rub a bit of the oil in your hands to warm it up. Apply it to your body like you would do with usual body lotion. You will get smooth and moisturised skin.

2. Body Scrub

Coconut oil can be perfectly used as a body scrub. It is easily made at home by mixing together coconut oil and coconut sugar. Apply the mixture on your body to get rid of dead skin cells. After the usage you will have soft and clean skin.

3. Hand cream

Use coconut oil on your hands if they are dry and chapped. For a better result lotion your hands generously with the oil and put gloves on overnight. You will have the softest hands afterwards.

4. Make up remover

To remove eye make up put some coconut oil on a cotton pad and gently rub down the make up. It is a very soft way to remove your make up and moisturise your skin at the same time.

5. Lip balm

The lip balms available in the shops are always packed with unhealthy ingredients. To get a natural and vegan lip balm, just use a bit of coconut oil on your lips. You won’t have dry or cracked lips ever again.

6. Dental care

Coconut oil is supporting you to absorb calcium and therefore, to have strong and healthy teeth. Tooth decay will be stopped and plaque formation can be reduced.

7. Hair mask

Once in a while you should treat your hair with a mask to keep it healthy. Coconut oil is a very good helper to protect your hair-ends against spliss and drought. Massage some coconut oil into the hair and let absorb. Shampoo as usual afterwards. For shiny hair do a hair mask once or twice a week.

8. Insect repellent

If you want to have an insect repellent that does not contain chemicals or additives, use coconut oil as your natural product. Mix coconut oil and essential oil together and apply it onto your skin. This has to be done regularly throughout the day to warrant protection against insects.

9. Skin disease

If you suffer from a skin disease, apply coconut oil on the affected area to alleviate symptoms. Coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and therefore, it is bland to the skin. As it is a natural product it won’t hurt while applying it on the skin.

10. After sun product

Coconut oil can be a helpful product if your skin got too much sun. The reddened and irritated skin is soothed and rehydrated by the oil. You should take care of your skin and avoid to stay in the sun for too long.
