Tashika Bailey | Coconut Oil Is A Miracle Product
Towards the end of last year, I discovered a miracle product known as coconut oil and I've been using it ever since. The brand that I originally started using is "Vita Coco", which is 100% raw, organic, extra virgin and cold compressed coconut oil. That jar lasted a good 5 months before rudely running out. I don't know what kept me so busy from re-purchasing a jar of coconut oil sooner and I don't know how I managed to go so long without it, but I've finally managed to buy a new jar months after it ran out.

I came across "Cocan coconut oil", after seeing it repeatedly on a list of bloggers profiles. I like the visual look of the product, so just like that, I decided to buy a jar and try it myself.

Use code "COCONUTS12" at the checkout to get 12% off any order at Cocan.co

I believe that coconut oil is a miracle product as it has a never-ending list of purposes both on its own and combined with other products. It is good for you in so many different ways. I absolutely love using 100% raw coconut oil all over my body. As soon as I finish my shower I cover my whole body, from head to toe, in coconut oil. It is a wonderful moisturizer which keeps my skin soft, smooth, moisturized and smelling of sweet coconuts, which results in healthy skin. This is a great product to keep your skin moisturized, especially as the weather changes from summer to winter. When I first heard about coconut oil as a beauty product used on the skin, I was wondering if it was going to leave my skin feeling oily and looking greasy, simply because it's oil. To my surprise it absorbs into the skin and doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or looking greasy. My skin feels gentle and delicate after using coconut oil.
Apart from using coconut oil on my body, I also use it on my hair. After I finish washing my hair, I rub the coconut oil on my scalp as well as all over my hair, it keeps my scalp health and leaves my hair looking silky smooth, feeling soft and smelling of sweet coconuts. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and has antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. When used on the hair it fights infections and fungus all while adding volume and shine without the common harmful chemicals. It is a natural and healthy way to grow your hair faster, longer and quicker and it works as natural sunscreen to protect your hair from heat. 

Coconut oil is a product that can be used as a beauty product, edible product and many more. I am going to list below some of the other purposes that I currently use this product for and others purposes that it can be used for.

Other purposes I currently use coconut oil for

Make up remover: Many companies have their own make up remover, that contains a list of chemicals and can only be used as a make up remover. Coconut oil is a natural make up remover. I used it to remove mascara that had ran under my eye and it completely removed it. I don't even need my make remover wipes any more. Sorry Garnier.

On my nails and cuticles: Coconut oil keeps nails and cuticles healthy, strong and moisturized. I use it after removing nail polish as this leaves them dry, the coconut oil leaves them smooth and rejuvenated.

Lip moisturizer: I use coconut oil on my lips as a natural moisturizer.

Spread: I use coconut oil as a yummy spread on my toast, it is delicious and healthy.

Teeth whitener: Add a tea spoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swirl it around for a couple minutes before spitting it out or mix it with baking-soda and use as a toothpaste to make teeth shiny and white. Coconut oil pulls bacteria, viruses and other organisms from your mouth and teeth, leaving them looking white and overall healthier.

Other purposes coconut oil can be used for

Cooking oil: Coconut oil is one of the most unique and beneficial oil for your body. It doesn't oxidize at high temperatures and it contains the most saturated fat of all edible oils. It is proven to boost metabolism which leads to weight loss.

Frizz repellent: Coconut oil is an oil which means it repels water, apply to hair and you've got yourself the best frizz repellent available.

Shaving oil: Coconut oil can be used as a substitute to shaving cream and it doubles as a moisturizer, just apply all over your legs and shave away.

Under eye cream: Coconut oil is light enough for the delicate parts of the body. Massage under eye to hydrate and keep under eye soft and healthy. It works as a natural anti-ageing cream simultaneously.

Body/lip scrub/Exfoliator: Mix coconut oil with brown sugar or sea salt to create a natural moisturizing body/lip scrub/exfoliator.
