By now you have surely heard about how wonderful coconut oil is. It offers so many wonderfully healthy properties that it should really be a staple in every home. I always have at least two jars on hand and use it in everything from cooking and baking to making candles and lotions. Seriously, this stuff is so versatile and let’s be fair, the scent is simply out of this world. So, if you’ve ever wondered about just what you’re supposed to do with coconut oil, I’m here to help you find the perfect homemade health and beauty product to put that coconut oil to great use.
DIY Two Ingredient Eye Cream
This easy two ingredient eye cream incorporates all of the benefits of coconut oil with Vitamin E to tackle those wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes. Just mix melted coconut oil with Vitamin E capsules (you’ll have to pierce the capsules to pull the vitamin out) and then use it morning and night to tackle everything from age spots to fine lines.
All Natural DIY Mascara
You can make your own mascara! And, it’s much cheaper than any makeup that you can buy over the counter…and much safer and healthier, too. The ingredients depend on what color you need.
Coconut Oil Based Hair Treatment
Coconut oil does wonders for dry and damaged hair. I use it all the time to tame split ends. You can make your own moisturizing hair treatment with coconut oil, honey and apple cider vinegar. This hair mask stays on for about 15 minutes
DIY Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
I love sugar scrubs, especially DIY sugar scrubs and this one may just be my favorite yet. The coconut oil and lime work together to give it a wonderful summertime scent and the ingredients are perfect for soothing dry skin.
DIY Hand And Body Scrub
Coconut oil and coffee are the only ingredients in this scrub that is perfect for sloughing away dry skin cells on your hands, feet, and all over your body. You use used coffee grounds, so save those grounds when you finish your last cup of coffee in the morning and then mix them with coconut oil.
