Deliciously smelling, nutrient-rich, skin loving moisture and oh-so wonderfully multi-purpose, do I have your attention? When this charming pot of INDAH’s Extra Virgin Coconut Oil landed on my desk, I was overjoyed. I’ve been very much a fan of coconut oil for many, many years now and am always willing to try new brands. You also have a chance to try this too, read on through to find out how.
INDAH’s Coconut Oil is sourced from Bali where it is hand pressed from organically harvested fresh coconut flesh. It is completely raw and undergoes no chemical treatments. Have you ever tried coconut oil that has a strong smell/flavour? This does not. It’s light and creamy with a fresh aroma which makes it quite palatable.
As mentioned above, coconut oil has many uses and I’ve put together a small list of the most common and favourable –
1- Body Oil/Moisturiser – perhaps the most obvious use, coconut oil has hydrating and regenerating properties that help to soothe and moisturise, leaving skin with a healthy natural glow.
2- Hair – Coconut oil can be used as a hair mask to hydrate and add shine to hair. Just massage in dry hair (it makes a good scalp treatment too) leave for at least ½ hour and shampoo thoroughly. It works well in hair that has been overly processed, whether it be from heat or colour. A little can also be used after hair is washed, but take note, a little goes a long way!
3- Cooking/Baking – Using coconut oil in your baking adds a healthy dose of good fats. Coconut Oil can withstand high heat so it’s ideal for when cooking at higher temperatures. It can be spread on toast or a dollop added to porridge or smoothies. Always, always make sure you pick a coconut oil that hasn’t been heat processed so all the nutrients are still intact.
4- Make-Up Remover – INDAH Founder Teisha Lowry’s favourite use. Apply a finger nail size to damp skin and massage for a minute or two. Use a cloth to help wash off. Oils are fabulous at cleansing the skin – it’s gentle and oil attracts oil.
5- DIY Body Scrub – Nothing fancy needn’t be used, just brown sugar and coconut oil! Mix well together for a home pampering experience which results in smooth and touchable soft skin.
6- Foot Care – Feet are often the neglected part of the body and yet they do so much work during the day. Massage in a small amount to feet at bed time and pop on a pair of socks. You’ll be rewarded with happy little tootsies, pleased to do your day’s bidding’s.
7- Personal Lubricant – Dare I mention that coconut oil can be used as a lubricant for certain bedroom activities? It melts easily and has good “slip” but be warned readers, it’s not compatible with condoms as it can dissolve latex.
8- Use to create these – A delightful recipe for healthy truffles – Teisha Lowry’s Raw Coconut Balls
9- Nappy Rash – With anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, gentle massaging into babies’ skin regularly has many benefits.
10- Shaving Oil – Slather onto legs, jump in the shower and shave away. Coconut oil has a thicker texture which creates a moisturising barrier between the blade and your skin.
Now it’s over to you – for your chance to win a jar of INDAH’s Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and experience the lushness first hand, leave a comment below describing how you’d love to use your coconut oil.
