Coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods on earth. Click here for a concise article from my favorite health advocate, Dr. Joseph Mercola, about its many health benefits. It can be used as a substitute for butter or olive oil. Do not be scared away by the high amount of saturated fat in coconut oil, it is used in your body in a vastly different way than saturated fats from foods like cheese, meat, or a decadent chocolate cake.

So coconut oil can used to make everything from a chocolate fudge to a healthy quinoa salad, but did you know it also makes one of the best lotions? Recently, while I was cooking with this awesome oil, I noticed that when I rubbed some of the oil on my hands it didn’t feel greasy like butter, but instead it left my hands feeling clean and soft. After doing some research I found that many use it as a natural moisturizer. It is organic, sustainable, eco-friendly, and cheaper than most lotions. The oil leaves a faint smell of coconut as well as nourishment on your skin. There are recipes for homemade lotions all over the internet, but for coconut oil all you have to do is…

Grab your favorite variety of coconut oil (preferably fresh pressed or cold pressed), use a spoon to scoop a tbs and lather all over your body. Your skin with feel luscious, smooth, and look radiant.

Best of all it’s quick, sustainable, and good for you!
