1. Oil Pulling

Whiter teeth, healthier gums, fresher breath, and relief of sinus pressure are just a few of the benefits that you will find when you pull oil. The trick is to do this first thing in the morning, before your morning coffee. Scoop yourself 1 tsp and swish in your mouth for about 15 - 20 minutes. Spit it out, rinse with hot water and brush those chompers after to rid your mouth of any residue.

2. Face Mask

If you struggle with persistent dry skin or forgot to put sunscreen on that beautiful face of yours, this will be your saving grace. Make sure you have a clean face before applying to your skin. Use about a nickel size and leave it in for about 20 minutes before washing off with warm water.

3. Shaving Cream

With the change in weather, we are all eager to have a fresh smooth  shave. This is one way to up the anti while keeping it natural. Lather on to any desired area and shave away.

4. Moisturizer

If you’re a brand loyal shaving cream individual, feel free to put on post shave as a moisturizer. You’ll not only feel smooth and silky but also smell like vacay.

5. Hair Mask

Looking to amp up the sheen of your luscious locks? Work the coconut oil through your hair, you can use a comb to help ensure you cover more area. Set the timer for roughly 20 minutes before you rinse it out with warm water. Don’t shampoo or condition after or else it can remove the effects of the oil.
