My local Trader Joe's recently had a large display with jars of coconut oil. Some of my friends rave about how It's good for everything ranging from cooking to natural beauty products, so I decided to give it a try.
I love using it as a moisturizer, an alternative to shaving cream, and as a makeup remover. However, it is generally solidified in the jar and is not super easy to use. Whipping it up solves that problem. You can also add other stuff like essential oils to spruce it up. I decided to add tea tree oil, but there are other options like peppermint or lavender.
