For awhile now, coconut oil has been gaining in popularity for all its many health and wellness benefits. Last week, I posted this great Coconut Oil Granola that has been a real hit in my house and is packed full of benefits to reduce the risk of Diabetes 2 and heart related conditions, increase energy, and fight bacteria and viruses.
But, did you know that coconut oil is also good for your skin? Coconut oil is a great skin softener and does wonders for hardened and cracked feet. It works to remove dirt and dead skin cells. Coconut oil will also act to prevent and help reduce acne breakouts.
Do you want to know my favorite skin related benefit of them all? The antioxidants found in coconut oil work to stop breakdown in skin elasticity. This means fewer wrinkles and a decrease in skin aging. Woo-hoo!
One great way to experience these benefits is to use a soap made with coconut oil. There are many available… so many it’s hard to pick just one. I’ve pulled together a list of 21 Handmade Coconut Oil Soaps from some of the great shops on Etsy. Each one of these have included Coconut Oil as an ingredient. You’ll want to try more than just one of these… I promise!
Which one do you think you’d like best? I think I just might have to try that Lavender Oatmeal Soap myself. Or, maybe the Pure Coconut Oil Soap. Or, the Lavender Vanilla Luxury Bar Soap. Or… you know, I just can’t make up my mind! 😉
