Honey and Coconut oil are marketed as superfoods because of their amazing health-promoting benefits. Ever wondered what magic they do when blended? Yes, a myriad of homemade remedies.
Coconut oil and Honey are powerhouses on their own. Benefits of coconut oil like moisturising the skin, hydrating, penetrating the hair shaft, or reducing the protein loss in hairs due to low molecular weight, when mixed with the benefits of honey - growth of the epithelial cell, rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants or being an anti-microbial and antiseptic, then this blend does wonders.
Honey and Coconut Oil for Face
Here are some simple and handy ways of combining the two best-known superfoods, honey with coconut oil for hair and the face, for your benefit:
DIY Face Mask
- One teaspoon of Raw Honey
- One teaspoon of Coconut Oil
- 1-2 drops of essential oil (Optional)
Mix one teaspoon of Raw Honey with one teaspoon of Coconut Oil thoroughly with a spoon. Blend them up in a mixing bowl till the sticky mixture is obtained. You may see small spots of honey after the combination hardens, but that’s just fine. In case you are struggling to blend the mixture you can heat it.
You may also add 1-2 drops of essential oil to get the benefits of aromatherapy, but it’s completely optional. After cleansing your skin, apply the mask evenly on your face by gently massaging the mixture in circular strokes while paying special attention to acne-prone regions. Leave the mask for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
Honey and Coconut oil for Hair
DIY Hair Mask
- One tablespoon of Coconut Oil
- One tablespoon of Honey
- 1-2 drops of essential oil
Mix coconut oil and honey in a mixing bowl and as an extra step to help your hair follicles open up, slightly heat the mixture on a stove until it’s melted but it’s completely optional. But remember to add essential oil after allowing the mixture to be cool to touch. Adding essential oil provides aromatherapy benefits.
Apply the mask all over your hair, focusing on dry hairs, split ends, and frizzy hairs. Massage with your fingers and leave it for at least 20 minutes by making a high bun or wearing a bathing cap before washing it off.
Recommended using it before the shower for ease as it can get messy.
