Everything You Can Do with Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin Coconut Oil—it’s the product that started it all for Zenutrients. This all-natural solution was first developed to address one family’s problem of psoriasis, but that’s not the only thing that VCO can do.
If you want to learn about all the ways that VCO can make your life a lot easier and you a lot healthier, then keep on reading!
In the Kitchen
You read that right! While our Pure VCO is more popularly known to treat the skin and scalp, it can come in handy in your kitchen too. Our VCO is food grade and cold-pressed, which means that it’s packed with all the nutrients that are good for you, inside and out!
One of our favorite recipes calls for only four ingredients: calamansi, sugar, fish sauce, and the Zenutrients Pure Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s quick, easy, and tastes divine with fresh tomatoes, crisp lettuce, and whatever you like in your salad.
Another way to incorporate VCO into your diet is through bullet proof coffee! Simply adding about two tablespoons of VCO into your favorite coffee recipe will leave you feeling satiated for a longer period time, and is an easy way to pack your cup of joe with nutrients. We recommend stirring the VCO in with a small hand whisk or a milk frother for an even blend.
Ever heard of oil pulling? It’s a dental care method that’s been around for thousands of years, and it’s something you might want to incorporate into your daily routine. Simply take about a tablespoon of Zenutrients Pure Virgin Coconut Oil and swish it around your mouth for around 15 minutes before brushing. The VCO dissolves plaque and washes harmful bacteria away.
Body, Face, and Lip Scrub
This VCO hack is a great way to repurpose old coffee grinds at home. For a multi-purpose scrub that can be used on your body, face, and lips, just mix sugar, coffee grinds, and even oatmeal with your Zenutrients Pure Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s a ridiculously easy way to enjoy an exfoliating scrub that you know is made of 100% natural ingredients!
Use the scrub no more than once a week for the face and 2-3 times a week for the body. Make sure not to scrub too aggressively and instead use a gentle technique.
P.S. If you want to switch things up, you can try out our pre-made body scrubs as well! Each one is formulated with the pure VCO we all trust and love.
Hair and Scalp Treatment
Sometimes, your scalp just needs an extra boost of moisture to battle itch and flakiness. Surprise, surprise, your trusty bottle of Zenutrients Pure Virgin Coconut Oil can serve that purpose too! Before showering, massage some VCO into the scalp and roots of your hair. Doing this gives you an added layer of nutrients and protection against dryness.
Mom and Baby Care
Because our Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is cold-pressed and made with nothing but natural ingredients, it’s completely safe for moms and their little ones! For breastfeeding mothers out there, the VCO can help soothe nipple dryness and cracking without making you worry if it’s good for your child or not. As for the babies, the VCO can be used as a gentle massage oil that can ease skin irritation.
If you’re an on-the-go mom, we also recommend our Zenutrients Virgin Coconut Oil Balm! It allows for mess-free application whenever, wherever.
Long Story Short…
A bottle of Pure Virgin Coconut Oil goes a long, long way. There are certainly more ways than one to make the most out of a single bottle—whether it’s on your hair, body, or even your salad dressing! And if you’re not a DIY type of person, don’t worry! Most of our Zenutrients products are made with pure VCO, since it’s a trusted ingredient that provides several benefits. After all, VCO has been a go-to natural solution for years and years, so if you haven’t yet, we highly suggest that you try it out and see for yourself!
