There is no doubt that coconut oil, also known as nature's moisturizer is truly amazing. At FLO+THEO, we love the white stuff so much that it is an essential ingredient in every single one of our products. But don't just take our word for it; here are five reasons why coconut oil is truly awesome!

Moisturizer - Coconut oil is readily absorbed by the skin and has remarkable deep moisturizing and hydrating properties. It is filled with antioxidants, Vitamin A, C and E, which all work together to heal and repair damaged skin. 

Shaving Cream - Substitute your shaving cream for coconut oil for a smooth shave. This is a great idea for those of you who have sensitive skin and may react to all the chemicals in normal shaving creams.

Eye Make-up Remover - Coconut oil is one of the gentlest ways to remove makeup.  Apply some to your eye area, and wipe off with a warm, damp towel.

Gargling coconut oil also known as Oil Pulling - This is an ancient Ayurvedic technique, touted by yogis as a natural way to strengthen the immune system by killing toxic yeast that makes its way from your stomach to mouth while you sleep.

Hair Conditioner - Coconut oil's has the unique ability to penetrate hair through and through making it very moisturizing and conditioning for hair. Scoop a chunk of coconut oil and warm it between your hands. Apply it through your hair starting from the bottom and focusing on the ends. Wrap your head in a shower cap and let it sit for 30- 45mins (or even sleep with it in overnight). Rinse it out in the shower and shampoo and condition as usual – I promise you’ll feel (and see) the difference!
