Below, are 7 more ways to incorporate it into your beauty routine: As a frizz-tamer Use a tiny amount of coconut oil to smooth down flyaway hair and add shine to your locks. As a moisturiser  The fatty acids in coconut oil helps lock moisture into the skin, so smooth some over your elbows and other rough spots to soften and heal. Instead of cuticle oil  Just dab some coconut oil on your cuticles and nails (you can also use it as a hand cream).  If you do this before bed and put on gloves, you’ll wake up to soft, smooth hands.

You will need:  rosemary essential oil castor oil empty clear mascara tube/small jar Rosemary  is a well-known hair growth stimulant that is also used on the scalp to promote hair growth.  It can be used anywhere on the body including the eyebrows to make them grow faster.  It is important to dilute it with a base oil (like castor oil) before applying to the skin. Castor oil helps the hair grow thicker and longer, and can keep it from breaking.  It can also help you grow new eyebrow hair in bare areas that might have been over-plucked. Method: Pour 1 tablespoon castor oil and 8 to 10 drops of rosemary essential oil in an empty clear mascara tube (or a small jar) and shake to mix the oils. Wash your face and make sure your eyebrows and the surrounding area is free of any make-up.  Pat your face and eyebrows dry.
