Coconut Oil-Miracle in a Jar

Have you heard of coconut oil? If you have, do you know what it can do for you? Let me tell you now, it’s a miracle in a jar. There’s so much you can do with it!

First, you can put it anywhere on your body as it’s a natural moisturizer. You can put it in your hair, on your face, on your butt cheeks…anywhere. I take off my makeup with it, use it as a hair and face mask, and even put it on my stretch marks. Coconut oil also helps balance your hormones, so when that time of the month rolls around, and you have a face full of pimples; dab some of the oil onto those annoying spots, leave it on overnight, and I promise they will either be gone, or close to gone.

Another thing you can do with coconut oil is eat it. If you take a tablespoon a day of this fabulousness, it will actually help you lose belly fat. I didn’t believe it at first either until I introduced it into my diet, and lost five pounds in a month. Substituting coconut oil as your everyday cooking oil is probably the easiest way to get your daily serving; you can also add it into food or drinks to get your daily dose of coconut miracle-in-a-jar.

To ingest it or slather it onto your body, you have to heat it up to make it into an oil, because if you have never seen it, it’s in a solid form.  You can put it into a cup and then put that into a bowl of hot water, you can put it into a plastic baggy and then put that into warm water; I keep my jar in the bathroom because the steam of the shower heats it up just enough. Do not put in the microwave!  Whenever you nuke anything, it takes out those needed nutrients. People always want to find the easiest way to do things, but being beautiful is a bitch and takes time. However, it’s all worth it in the end when you are positively glowing!

You can buy coconut oil at any health food store like Whole Foods or Mother’s Market, you can get it at vitamin stores like Vitamin World, and you can even find it at farmers markets. Quite a few regular grocery stores are starting to carry it as well. When you are shopping around for this product make sure you purchase one that says extra virgin coconut oil. This kind will be the most beneficial to your body.

Coconut oil is a beautiful, natural product and I hope you decide to try it. Enjoy!
