The many uses of Pure Coconut Oil!

Here's a product that I haven't been able to get enough of lately...pure coconut oil!
I purchased this tub a while back from Holland & Barrett and although it can be used for cooking and baking, I've solely been incorporating it into my beauty routine.
The oil comes in solid form and will remain as such if stored below 24 degrees Celsius. When you scoop a bit out and rub it between your hands, it starts to melt making it easy to apply. 
Coconut oil is incredibly moisturising and I'm CRAZY for the scent!!! I'd just like to find a way of permanently attaching this tub to my nose...:) But for now I'll just stick to having a whiff of it each time I'm in the bathroom. 

I've been using it as:
  • an all over body moisturiser
  • lip balm (not only is it moisturising but you also need not worry about ingesting it as it's edible & actually good for you:))
  • hand and cuticle cream
  • make-up remover (works brilliantly!)
  • facial moisturiser 
  • hair mask (leave on for a while before shampooing)
  • foot cream 
  • excellent for moisturising dry knees & elbows
  • and just today I got the idea to rub it into my underarms to test it out as a natural deodorant (can't as of yet specify if it works effectively for this purpose) 
Anyway, if you're mad about coconut oil and have discovered any other uses for it as a beauty product then please share!
