When it comes to remedies for natural beauty I’m all over it . One of my favorite things to fool around with is natural oils .

Improving these parts of you can drastically change your appearance and make you appear more healthy with a natural glow .

Now let’s get into the BENEFITS And uses of these oils .
1. Grow your hair
Yessss natural oils are sooooooo good for your hair and I mean ALL HAIR !
When I started using natural oils in my hair it changed the health of my hair almost instantly .
Our hair produces natural oils but sometimes doing a hot oil treatment before shampooing you’re hair will make your hair shiny and healthy .
Coconut oil is one of my favorite oils and it is so good for your hair . It’s one of the only oils that can penetrate your hair shaft and nourish you hair from the inside out .
It contains fatty acids and vitamins that when it penetrates your hair it’s has no choice but to make your hair healthier and shinier . I love using coconut oil for hot oil treatments
I used the Simply Earth Coconut oil that came in my subscription box to do a hot oil treatment .
To do a hot oil treatment :
- Pour enough oil to cover your hair in a microwave safe bowl.
- Heath the oil up for 15-30 seconds in microwave.
- Completely saturate your hair with the warm/hot oil .
- Put a plastic cap over your hair and allow oil to stay on hair for about 30 minutes
- Rinse out oil
- Shampoo and condition hair as normal
***You can also add a few drops of essential oils to the oil as well . My favorite essential oils for hair growth and Heath are tea tree oil and peppermint oil .
Peppermint oil is good for activating your scalp and stimulating growth . Only add a few drops this oil is strong and will make your head tingle lol .
Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties and is good at keeping your scalp clear of dandruff , stimulating hair growth and reducing itchiness of the scalp .
Although you can just use coconut oil . The combination of coconut oil , peppermint oil and tea tree oil will pack a great punch for healthy hair .
2. Growing thicker lashes and brows
I love using natural oils on my brows and eyelashes . It keeps your lashes and brows strong and healthy and can promote growth and thickness .
I do not recommend using essential oils on your eyelashes but using carrier oils like coconut oil , almond oil and jojoba oil are really good for the health of your eyelashes and brows .
How to use :
- Pick a carrier oil (coconut oil , jojoba oil or almond oil ect) I purchase my oils from Simply Earth here .
- Put a small amount of oil on a qtip and apply a thin layer of oil to your lashes and brows . (Make sure you cover all the hair but don’t drench them in oil)
That’s pretty much it . After a few weeks you should notice some growth or thickness 🙂
3. Soft smooth and healthy skin
I want to start this by saying do not put essential oils directly on your skin undiluted.
Carrier oils on the other hand can go directly on the skin and can provide awesome skin benefits .
My Simply Earth bonus box came with both coconut and almond oil which are both awesome Carrier oils for skin .
I choose to use almond oil on my face every night for extra moisture and to wake up with a natural glow .
How to use almond oil for glowing skin :
- Wash your face
- Apply moisturizer
- Put a thin layer of almond oil over the moisturizer
That’s it! It’s sooo simple .
You can also use oils all over your skin for a natural glow . Just add a thin layer of oils on your legs , arms and chest and just watch your skin glisten …. while it’s being nourished 🙂
What’s great about natural oils is there are so many of them to choose from. I mentioned some of my favorites in this post but honestly you can use olive oil , castor oil , grape seed oil , jojoba oil , coconut oil , almond oil , avocado oil and the LIST GOES ON !
So hop on the natural oil train so you can really reap the benefits . These are only 3 ways oils can benefit your appearance. However , there are so many other benefits of these oils . I will be doing more detailed posts about them because I know their value and I want to share it with you 🙂
