Coconut oil sugar scrub is just one of hundreds of ways to use organic virgin coconut oil for health and beauty. Are you using organic virgin coconut oil yet? If not, you’re missing out on a secret, natural solution for healthy, beautiful skin, nutrition and so many other personal delights that come from the oil inside of this magical nut, the coconut. My cousin, Donna, turned me on to Coconut Oil this summer and now I’m really hooked on it. It’s sort of a little miracle and I have to pass it on.
Of course you can eat it and cook with coconut oil, which is one of the reasons I wanted to share this with you, but I would be holding out on my readers and followers if I didn’t tell you about the endless amazing secrets of coconut oil.
First of all, coconut oil is great as a skin moisturizer, helping with dry skin. I also learned it’s great for your hair. But the amazing thing is that you can put it everywhere on your body except in your eyes. It can reduce or get rid of acne, does not clog pores, is a great base for scrubs and body lotions, is a natural sunscreen and is a healthy food to eat.
There are probably 1001 ways to use Coconut Oil, but I’m going to list my top 50 here, right below the video featuring my shower scrub. Feel free to leave a comment telling me about how you use it. Once you do, you’ll never know how you lived without it.

In addition to my shower scrub idea, here are 49 more ideas for how to improve your life with coconut oil. These focus on the use of organic virgin coconut oil. These next uses are the ways that I’ve actually used coconut oil myself:
Moisturizer — coconut oil is a nearly perfect moisturizer to use anytime of day, especially if you live in a dry or cold climate. I like to use it after a bath or shower and in colder climates, I’ll actually put a little bit all over myself before I get in the shower and then soap won’t be as unforgiving. The coconut oil keeps your skin soft all day and will not irritate or leave you overly greasy. If you use my shower scrub, you’ll leave the shower already exfoliated and moist.
