Coconut oil boasts a plethora of health benefits and has become prized not only in the kitchen but by natural beauty enthusiasts, finding a variety of applications in the bathroom. Here are several ways to use coconut oil as a low-cost replacement for bathroom products that often contain harmful chemicals:



1. Lip Balm

Coconut oil acts as a moisturizer to nourish and hydrate chapped lips. A 2004 study [1] published in the journal Dermatitis confirmed the effectiveness of coconut oil as a safe oil when used as a moisturizer.



2. Facial Cleanser

Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties [2] and moisturizing abilities that make it perfect to cleanse your face, using a small amount added to a clean, hot, damp cloth. Say goodbye to manufactured cleansers which contain harmful chemicals.

3. Deodorant

Some traditional deodorants can irritate your skin. You can use coconut oil as an alternative to these products. Research shows that coconut oil has antifungal properties [3] that will help your underarms smell fresh every day.

4. Body Oil



Coconut oil is good for dry skin. Its emollient effects were proven by a study [4] which used the oil to moisturize dryness in an adult with atopic dermatitis. Spots that often get drier include elbows and knees. So, rub the oil on these areas.

5. Oil Pulling

Coconut oil is one of the preferred oils for oil pulling, which is a traditional way to cleanse the mouth of bacteria. One study [5] revealed the effectiveness of oil pulling using coconut oil in treating plague related gingivitis.

6. Hair Treatment

Many will attest to the fact that coconut oil is excellent for hair treatment, especially for dry hair. Coconut oil is an effective moisturizer for the scalp and hair. It also nourishes your hair from inside out. According to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetics Science, [6] coconut oil contains lauric acid that prevents loss of hair proteins which could lead to hair damage.

7. Eye Makeup Remover

You can now remove your makeup without fear of irritating your eyes by using coconut oil which also gives extra hydration to the skin around your eyes. Coconut oil is rich in vitamin E [7] which is essential for fighting wrinkles.

8. Cuticle Treatment

Rugged nails could be tamed by massaging your finger nails and toe nails with coconut oil. Fungal infections are also opposed since coconut oil has anti-fungal properties. [8]

9. Body Scrub

Mix coconut oil with shea butter to make a body balm. You can also mix the oil with sugar or salt to have an amazing body scrub with exfoliating properties. We all know the moisturizing effect of coconut oil that will maintain your skin’s suppleness.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
