Coconut.. naturally benefits

I believe we need to always consider what makes up our everyday products.. whether consumed or used on the body. The average woman uses 515 toxins on her face alone every single day. Don't ask me what these are I do not know.. except for parabens. These are a preservative that mimic the acts of estrogen and block our estrogen receptors- thus increasing our chances of estrogen fed cancers. Now there are several types of parabens (methy-, propyl-, ethyl-.) and some may be considered a green light- while others yellow or red. But who is to say what is green for one isn't yellow or red for another?  Because of this I just avoid them all- and absolutely refuse to subject my clients to them. That is why I chose to use Organic Hexane Free Extra Virgin Cold pressed oil. When choosing a coconut oil be certain that it's hexane free- you can find out more about parabens and hexane by doing a smart Google search.

Here are just a few ways coconut oil might benefit...

  • As an incredibly intensive natural conditioner- Rub into dry hair, put a shower cap on and leave for several hours.A tiny dab rubbed on your hands and then through hair will help get rid of friz
  • On feet to fight athlete’s foot or tor fungus. **Note- I am not treating anything. I use it to massage your feet. If you have a fungal infection it is pertinent that you let me know when you arrive. Thank you
