Recently i discovered my love for natural and organic oil’s again such as Argan and Moroccan oil, however I have never tried and tested coconut oil, seeing as there was such a HUGEEE hype on the product in the blogging world.

If someone were to tell me years ago that there was one single product that could contribute to my health and beauty regime, I would of never believed them. After discovering this little gem, my mind is completely changed. Coconut Oil is simply one of the best multi purpose organic natural products available.

Coconut Oil is an amazing hair mask. It leaves your hair with a silky texture feeling and lots of shine. I run this through my hair in a similar way of any normal store bought hair mask, just before I got to sleep, let it do it’s magic over night and wash it out in the morning once out the shower you’ll discover your best hair day yet.

It is one of the healthiest oil’s you could use when cooking and it can also be used as a baking ingredient as it is a saturated fat it can be used in place of butter.

Coconut oil is one of the best moisturisers I have ever used! It can be so much more effective than any average store bought lotions, the oil penetrates deep layers of the skin and actually helps strength under-layering tissues, it also helps remove any dead skin cells. It is a great face moisturiser, I like to use it to also remove my makeup at the end of the night, as the oil helps breakdown any makeup from water proof mascara to liquid lipstick. I just lather the oil between my fingers and working and massaging it into the skin until all the makeup looks like it is about to melt off my face then remove the excess with a damp muslin cloth.

Note: I dont reccommned heating the coconut oil in the microwave as it damages vital health properties within the product.
