Homemade Coconut Oils Scrubs and Home Remedies
Coconut oil has been proven to be very beneficial in many ways.
This versatile ingredient can be used to promote healthy skin, hair, and nutrition.
In cooking, use coconut oil to replace any pressed seed oil. It is a much healthier alternative. Plus, you can use it while cooking at high temperatures. You can even use it on your toast instead of butter.
In addition, coconut oil is one of the best healthy fat sources.
Coconut oil also works great on your skin as it provides excellent hydration.
It can be used alone on the skin or added with other ingredients to make luxurious, skin-nourishing products.
It makes a fantastic lip balm or lotion — the oil hydrates super dry areas like the elbows or knees.
In addition, coconut oil doesn't have harsh chemicals like other skincare products, so it doesn't irritate sensitive skin.
You can create several at-home recipes with coconut oil for natural remedies!
Making homemade skincare is super simple. Most recipes take just minutes to complete and call for only a few items.
Many times most of the ingredients needed are in your kitchen pantry.
You can find many natural and organic ingredients in the health food section of your local supermarket. And if all else fails, try Amazon. If you are a prime member, they offer a prime pantry where you can get many items you need for your pantry shipped right to your door at a low-cost fee.
Making Scrubs At-home
Exfoliating Body Scrub
- Coconut oil
Mix 1 part coconut oil with 2 parts sugar. Combine well. Wet down the skin you want to exfoliate and rub the oil and sugar mixture over the skin's surface.
Rinse off with water once the exfoliant begins to dissolve and your skin absorbs the moisture (about 30 to 60 seconds in one area). Then, pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer for extra hydration.
Exfoliating Facial Scrub
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoons Oats
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
Mix ingredients together. Use a cloth to wet your face. Rub the scrub over your face for about 30 to 60 seconds. Next, rinse your face with water and follow up with a facial moisturizer for extra hydration. This recipe is good for about two uses.
How To Make 5 Natural Beauty Products Using Coconut Oil
If you like to know what is in your products 100% and are a bit of a DIYer, then these five easy-to-make natural beauty products using Coconut Oil will be right up your alley!
Coconut oil is a superfood, and it isn't just for better-balanced hormones, a stronger immune system, or to use when cooking or in your smoothie!
It can feed your skin while giving you soft, glowing, and youthful-looking skin.
So let's get rolling, shall we?
Here are five easy-to-make natural beauty products that use coconut oil as their base ingredient.
Why use commercial makeup removers that contain god knows what?! This coconut oil makeup remover is super simple; it is only two steps:
- Warm a bit of coconut oil between your palms and distribute the coconut oil over your face and eyes
- Wipe the coconut oil away with a damp cloth
Not only is your makeup removed, but you'll also be left with bright, fresh skin.
Skip the conventional deodorants and antiperspirants with aluminum as an ingredient (linked to cancer) and opt for this quick and easy do-it-yourself deodorant! Mix:
- Two parts baking soda (this takes care of odors)
- Two parts cornstarch (this keeps you dry)
- 1 part coconut oil (this keeps your skin hydrated)
Tip: Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for fragrance. Many essential oils have antibacterial properties. This is an excellent idea for both men and women.
Coconut Oil Toothpaste
Don't want SLS, glycols, and Fluoride in your toothpaste? Then check out this recipe: that only has three ingredients!
- Equal parts coconut oil
- Identical parts baking soda (this will help keep your teeth white)
- With a few drops of peppermint essential oil (this will give you a minty flavor)
Tip: Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so rinse your sink with hot water when you're done. This is an excellent idea for both men and women.
Want to be smooth and silky? Then try this on for size. Fortunately, it only has one ingredient:
- Rub a generous amount of coconut oil onto the area that you want to shave, and then shave away
You should find that you won't need to moisturize afterward when you are done! Again, this is an excellent idea for both men and women.
Coconut Oil Body Butter
Even though coconut oil is lovely as a moisturizer on its own, you may want to take it up a notch and make a Coconut Oil Body Butter: Whisk until you achieve a light, frothy texture:
- Coconut Oil
- With a few drops of your favorite essential oil
Spoon it into an airtight glass container, and that's it! So there you have it. I told you they were easy!
Of course, I recommend that you use Organic Coconut Oil. Feel free to leave your comments below, and please share this article if you liked it.
