How to use Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil is a carrier oil. It is useful when working with other essential oils because it is sometimes necessary to dilute a neat oil. One example is when applying to the skin. Powerful, highly concentrated essential oils may cause skin irritations. Another use for carrier oils blended with essential oils is that they are often applied during massage, acting as a needed lubricating agent when working larger areas and muscles.
Also, Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer, helping with dry skin and reduces protein loss when used in hair. Coconut oil can also be used as body lubricant.
