Lately I have been discovering the health benefits of coconut, and I've been going pretty crazy with it in the kitchen. I've used coconut oil to cook with and add flavor to my dishes, I've been drinking coconut water to hydrate and I've even been using the extract to add significant flavor in baking!

The health benefits of coconut are basically endless. I could write a novel about all the uses and benefits of this superfood. However, did you know that it can be used for beauty as well?

Here are a few benefits of coconut oil, specifically...

1. Clears the face. Just dab some on when you are having a breakout and clear skin will be on it's way.

2. It's a natural moisturizer. Use it for an all-over body moisturizer for that gorgeous, natural glow. 

3. A hair mask. For those that have super dry roots or hair in general, it can be a life saver for silky, shiny hair. 

The best part about these remedies is they are 100% natural! No added colors, chemicals, or scents. What's not to love? 

I hope you pick some coconut oil up today, and make use of the great benefits in the kitchen and for beauty! I like to buy Trader Joe's organic coconut oil because it is priced right. 

Let me know how it goes for you all! 

xo,

Monica
