Coconut oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, so we love it as an all round moisturiser.
You will need:
• Small jar (recycled or glass bought)
• Coconut oil (melted)
• Essential oil of your choice, if you wish to add a scent.
We buy coconut oil in bulk, this is a good idea to reduce waste, especially if you can only get it in plastic.
• Add a few tablespoons of melted coconut oil (depending on size of jar) and you are good to go.
• Let it harden overnight.
It is perfectly fine on its own, we also add a few drops of lavender essential oil, to a separate jar of coconut oil for a night cream. It helps us relax at night.
It is really that easy to stay moisturised. Just play about with the amount that you apply to your skin, as coconut oil is very rich. It is great for dry skin conditions. If you have oilier skin, a very small amount would do the job.
