Coconut to Peppermint

Coconut to Peppermint

If you knew me, you’d know that I like buying products that can be used for more than one thing. One of those things is oil. I use oil to cook. I use oil for my hair. I use oil to moisturize. Mostly for moisturize.

Since I was little, I was taught that oil was not suppose to be on your skin. I heard people complaining about how their skin was to oily and hated it because more make up issues, and because of acne, and because the oils clogged their pores and because the beauty industry said so. However, that oil being bad for your skin isn’t complete true.

Now i understand why oily skin can be annoying. I’ve seen someone use those oil absorbing strips once, and it was super gross looking when she was done (she used more than one strip by the way.) However, Oil isn’t bad for your skin, as long as it is in moderation.

For those of you who have oily skin may be thinking “YEAH RIGHT! Tell that to my constantly clogged poor and heavily pimpled face.” (I will only except that statement with some attitude, a head roll, and a finger waving back and forth.) But it is scientifically found that the oil produced by your skin prevents you from getting wrinkles. Now while your sitting here angry about your oils, in 40 or something years, you’ll be grateful towards your oily skin.

Now, if your skin doesn’t produce much oils, heres something that cosmetic marketers don’t tell you: SMOTHER ON THE OILS.

Coconut oil has been praised for its growth and moisturizing qualities for quit some time now. Its good for reducing puffiness as well as hair growth. It is an ant bacterial so you can use it as a deodorant, as a mouth was, to numb the pain of cavities. That is for a reason. It is great to put onto anything because the fatty acids in the oil is small enough to be absorbed. So, when you put it on your skin, your skin will suck it right up and leaves you with no indication it was there except for its wonderful smell and shinny glow. However, this isn’t the only oil that’ll keep you moisturized.

Peppermint oil is also a great oil to use.

Now, while peppermint oil isn’t solid in a large quantity, like coconut oil is, it does have its benefits. For example, when used topically, which means when on skin, can reduce inflammation, gets rid of lice and dandruff, relaxed muscles, and cools sun burns. It is also a moisturizer, like coconut oil. When taken orally, it can relax ADHD symptoms, relaxes headaches, clears sinuses.

With these two oils together, it’ll be great. When you mix the two oils, it can help with respiratory problems. Mix the two together and make it into a vapor, it can help with bronchitis and asthma. Them two together can reduce fever; just run it on your neck and feet and it’ll reduce the fever a little bit. Also, it can soothe teething symptoms for babies. It can be used as a “pre-poo;” Mix it together, put it into your hair before washing and leave it there for 30 minutes. It works because many of the shampoos that have sulfate strips oil out of all oil. Being that peppermint rids the scalp of dandruff and the coconut oil promoting hair growth, these two oils together can do some great things not just to the body but to your skin and hair, and who doesn’t want that!
