For months, I’ve been wanting to come up with a way I could talk about benefits of different foods, vitamins, oils, and maybe some self help ways to be healthier physically and mentally.
I was inspired with this title just a few moments ago and now I have a series I can use, finally!!! 🙂
My selection for the first post probably isn’t something new to many of you, which is great. Coconut oil.
Though it may be trending now, coconut oil usage has been going on for thousands of years.
It is amazing what coconut oil can do that and the benefits it shares 🙂
Nutrients Of Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has antioxidants in it. Antioxidants help repair tissue and strengthen blood cells.
Nutrients/Vitamins in Coconut Oil (there is not a significant source in coconut oil)
Vitamin E– this tends to be added, it is not something naturally made.
Vitamin K- helps makes protein for bones and blood clotting.
Benefits of Using Coconut Oil
Hair – Helps damaged hair. Used as a conditioner, and can help dandruff.
Dry Skin– Coconut oil is really good at helping flaky and dry skin. I’ve used coconut oil on my hands before when my eczema flared up making the skin on my fingers flaky.
Anti Aging– Bags under eyes and wrinkles could have an added benefit of using coconut oil.
Itchy Skin– I’ve used coconut oil for this reason and I was shocked at how instant using coconut oil gave me relief. As I mentioned, I have eczema and it’s said for skin conditions like that, using coconut oil may help.
Face Oil – Another use of coconut oil is to use as a face oil. You don’t need much, just a little bit goes a long way. If you have oily skin, like I do, you may want to use coconut oil on your face not every day, or just in some parts of your face.
Removing Make Up– I’ve heard of people using coconut oil to remove make up. I myself have not done it, but others really enjoy this method.
Hope you all enjoy this series 🙂 and have a wonderful Friday!!!
