I use Coconut Oil for just about everything. I cook with it. I lotion with it. I keep some in the shower and shave with it. I cleanse my face with it (read the blog post on that!). I do a great hair treatment with it. I even scoop a spoonful into my smoothies from time to time. It’s an AMAZING oil with SO many uses and even more benefits!
If you’re not familiar with coconut oil, it’s solid at room temperature and easily melts with contacts to the skin (with your body heat). So for lotioning, it’s typically solid in my bathroom and I scoop out a clump with my fingers and smooth it into my skin as its melting. It leaves the skin feeling so soft and it smells pretty great too.
If you’re not into the texture of coconut oil in its solid form and prefer something a little more elegant when massaging your clean skin with lotion, try whipping it! It’s so easy and leaves you with a fluffy, velvety, creamy texture that feels like heaven on your skin! I LOVE it.
- Place coconut oil and fragrance oil in your stand mixer.
- Beat on high for 10 minutes, or until mixture is thick and fluffy inconsistency.
- Scoop into a lidded jar and enjoy! That’s it! Could it be any easier to create a luxurious, velvety body cream, I think not?
