Sunday Vibes and Some Coconut Oil…

The many uses of Coconut oil

Guys, I have been meaning to write this post for a while but I am in the midst of a lot of changes. Work, a course that I am doing on the side and finding a new place. Phew! But I try very hard to write when I can. And Sundays, for me, seems to be the day where my creative juices start flowing. Maybe it’s to do with relaxing. Who knows. But either way I try to relax as much as I can on Sundays. And lately that involves some DIY Coconut treatments. And guys… my eyes have remained wide open ever since the very first time I tried 100% raw organic coconut oil.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why it has taken me this long to get on board the coconut oil train, but now that I have, there ain’t no stopping me! You would literally have to pry me off as my nails grate into the sides of the metal train door!

I first started oil pulling. What’s that, you say? Oil pulling is when you slosh raw organic coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes. I however have not managed to do it straight for the whole 20 minutes (all that sloshing around gets a bit much) so I spit it out after about 5 minutes and repeat the process.  It is great. I know you might think other wise but just do me the favour and try it. It not only is an antiseptic for your teeth, it also is a natural whitener. Not to mention aiding your overall oral hygiene.

Take a look at some of the benefits:

So there you have it, I am officially a believer. I mean if all it took was coconut oil then I have wasted a serious amount of money all these years. Slightly depressed about that point.

So here are the best of the best DIY beauty treatments using coconut oil.
Enjoy!

    • Definitely try it! I even use coconut oil as a moisturiser! It is simply the best ingredient that you can have in your house! I go to Holland & Barrett! It is on the expensive side but it does a great job. And just imagine all the savings you would be doing once you stopped buying everything else! But don’t forget to get 100% raw (Virgin) organic coconut oil! Best stuff ever!!!! X

      • I’m pretty good w/ minimal things though. Just have 1 moisturizer which I don’t even use in the summer since my skin gets oily then. But I definitely have been wanting to try this for a while & will get to it asap. Really looking forward to it! 😀 Thanks for all the extensive amazing recipes, I will try some too 🙂 Love doing that at home ❤
