So most people I bet are going to be writing beautiful recipes that use the Vita Coco Coconut Oil and that is where I laugh in their faces because… why waste something that has so many great uses!
Nappy Rash Cream
Sudocrem is in pretty much every parents’ bathrooms or nursery and it’s a nightmare to remove from clothes, carpet and if your baby covers themselves in it then you get the joy of rushing them into a bath and cleaning that mess up. What have you ever tried coconut oil for nappy rash? You see as a cloth nappy user I cannot use sudocrem because it creates a barrier (which is also why you find it so hard to remove from clothing) and stopping the reusable nappy doing its job. Coconut oil is a natural and non-chemical nappy rash treatment and it’s great for sensitive skin like a newborn baby.
I suffer some back problems and something that is good for your skin and great for gicing great massages is coconut oil. Get some on your hands, gently rub them together to warm it up and voila, perfect oil for giving your partner a massage. It’s also anti-bacterial!
Shave Your Legs
The usual stuff you buy can get expensive and is also filled with an assortment of chemicals. You can easily just use some coconut oil, rub it on your legs and you’ll be able to smoothly shave them! It’ll also leave your skin looking great and more hydrated, so give it a go!
Cold Sore Treatment
Suffer from cold sores and find yourself buying an arrange of stuff to fight them off? Whilst it won’t get rid of them, coconut oil is anti-bacterial and will help clear it up if you place it on the area as it begins to form. Do this a few times a day and you should see the cold sore disappear a lot quicker then before.
Soothe Dry Hands
If you suffer from dry hands just rub a bit of coconut oil on to your hands. Some people will keep a pot of coconut oil by their kitchen sink and after washing dishes they’ll rub coconut oil on their hands. In fact in general it’s a great moisturiser!
So those are my “recipes”. I know they aren’t real recipes but I want to show that coconut oil on it’s own is amazing stuff! Seriously, buy yourself a big tub of it and you’ll see save yourself so much money and your skin will look way better too! Enjoy!
