Yeast Infections: The acids found in coconut oil are natural anti-fungal, antiviral, and antimicrobial agents, so slather on some oil instead of that messy cream to treat those uncomfortable infections!

Stretch Marks: If those stretch marks are putting a damper on your new-found pregnancy glow, then try rubbing them down with coconut oil for an all-natural solution.

Deodorant: Hesitant to slather on the harsh chemicals found in most deodorants? Why not give coconut oil a try? It is gentle, pure, and just as effective!

Eye-Makeup Remover: It’s so important to be careful of what we apply to our sensitive faces! Coconut oil is a great substitute for make-up removers. You can mix some in with your existing remover, or just use it on its own for a more natural option!

Face Moisturizer: Too much time in the sun will suck the moisture right out of your skin! Just lather on some coconut oil for an intense, overnight moisturizer that will give your dry skin a boost of hydration.

Intensive Hair Moisturizer: For those of us who can’t seem to give our hair the hydration it needs, coconut oil is a great fix! Just apply a small amount of oil to your hair, and tuck it all up in a shower cap for a couple hours. For more homemade hair repairs, click here!
