The Magic Of Coconut Oil

Not sure if you do but I hear and read about it everywhere all the time!!!! Just by discovering new blogs and coming across beauty webs I realised everyone is talking about coconut oil at the moment!!!! It is big yes and I have started using it as well.Can't tell you enough about what it does to your body, hair and skin, but it is cheap so no harm in giving it a try but than I promise you will never stop making sure there is always a big tub in your bathroom/kitchen cabinet at all time!!!!

Here is couple of really good and FUNNY articles about it and why I started my journey with coconuts :-)

In a veeeeeery funny way by (one of my fav bloggers) Jenna Marbles

I’ve been meaning to write this blog for quite some time because Coconut Oil has been making my world go round for about six months now. Imagine if Jesus and Lady Gaga made a MAC Viva Glam product out of pure unicorn blood and then Ghandi blessed it after it was filtered through a rainbow of infant tears on top of Mount Everest and it dropped down from the sky to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean where a narwhal incubated it to it’s maturity and sold it Johnny Appleseed where he planted it on the holy grounds of Jerusalem and it sprouted into a glitter explosion of pure amazingness. That’s what coconut oil is.
First I suggest you come up with any health or beauty ailment you could possibly imagine. Got one in mind? Well coconut oil fucking cures that shit. I’m not joking click on this link and read about it: HERE
Or you can just google it on the internet machine and count how many times your mind is blown.
Basically it’s the Holy Grail of magical natural products. At least for me, but it seems like it is for many other people as well, and guess how much this precious gem will break your bank account? $9 or so at Ho-Foods (Whole Foods) or other places that sell organic products. The brand I buy is pictured above, they sell it with a white label as well, which I’m not sure is any different, along with tons of other organic brands....
