Amazing, natural product - with so many benefits

Over the past few months I have been using coconut oil, and I have to say I have fallen in love with it. You can buy it online, and ebay have some great offers - take a look!

You may think its a little pricey, but let me tell you, once you realise just how many uses there are for this magic product, its true value for money.

It can be used in cooking, as it can be used to cook at high temperatures and does not smoke. I particularly like it for making curries, and do you know that coconut oil can help your body to burn more calories? good news.

It can be used as a body moisturiser, a small amount goes a long way, and it really does absorb well, and moisturise the skin. I have noticed a massive improvement since I have been using it. It can be used on the face too, even the delicate areas near the eyes so long as you are careful. Its a natural product so you are putting goodness onto, and basically into your skin as it is absorbed. No nasty chemicals to cause unwelcome reactions. 

I also like to use it on my hair, it can be massaged into the hair then wrap your hair in a warm towel for at least an hour, or even overnight. Wash your hair and be amazed at the condition. do this frequently and you should see improvements in the strength and condition of your hair. 

One of the more unusual uses is oil pulling, or swishing. This is where you put some coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around. As coconut oil sets at certain temperatures, you may start with a solid, which then melts in your mouth. If you can get used to this strange sensation, stick with it - its worth it! Oil pulling for a maximum of 20 mins per day is good for all round health. It pulls the toxins from the mouth, into the oil. Be careful not to swallow the oil, instead, spit into a bin, or the toilet. You will notice a clean, tingly sensation as the nasties from your mouth have been removed. As the mouth is the entry point for many toxins, it can lead to improvements in overall body health. I can vouch for this, as I have been doing this for a few months now. I cant imagine not doing it! Get a good quality coconut oil, and it can be used for practically everything. 

Other uses....it can reduce the appearance of age spots if rubbed in daily. You could make body scrubs, aromatherapy treatments, and use it as aftersun. A wonderful product and a great investment.  #GotADiscount along with @eBay_UK and #ebayguides.
