Solve All Your Problems With This Multi-Purpose Coconut Oil Blend

Yes, coconut oil is for everything.

Posted on

Here's what you'll need:

* 1 cup coconut oil

* 2 teaspoons vitamin E oil

* 5-7 drops of preferred essential oil (optional; we used lavender)

* Hand mixer or whisk

* Glass jar/container with airtight lid

Here's what you'll do:

Body Lotion/Wood Surfaces

1.Mix coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and optional essential oil together in a large bowl with a hand mixer or a whisk.

2.Pour mixture into a glass jar/container and seal with an airtight lid. Store in a cool, dark place for up to a year.

3.Use for body lotion or to polish wood surfaces. (A little goes a long way!)


Makeup Remover

1.Fill a glass jar cotton pads, or even cotton balls.

2.Mix 2 tablespoons of the oil mixture with ½ cup warm water, and pour over the cotton pads until each pad is saturated with the liquid. If using cotton pads, you may need to press down the stack with your fingers to get the liquid to fall to the bottom. Drain excess liquid if needed. Store in a cool, dark place.

3.Use to gently remove makeup! Be careful around the eyes. 


Hair Mask

1.Apply oil mixture generously to clean, damp hair starting at the ends and working your way up towards the scalp. A little goes a long way here too, so you might want to use less on your scalp.

2.Tie hair up and put on a shower cap. Let sit for 30 minutes.

3.Rinse with shampoo and conditioner (optional). Style your hair as you normally would.

4.Enjoy your soft, shiny hair. Self-pampering for the win!
