Team MissMalini loves beauty hacks, tips, and secrets and coconut oil is one sneaky little bugger. You will never have guessed the benefits that a bottle of extra virgin coconut oil can have in your life. Plus it’s super cheap, so go out and stock up on a huge bottle of this!

1) DIY Deodrant

All you need is 3 tea spoons coconut oil, 4 tea spoons baking soda, and 2 tea spoons pure shea butter. Since coconut oil is solid at room temperature, use a double boiler to melt coconut oil and shea butter. Take it off the boiler before it’s completely liquid. Mix the two in a mason jar or any jar with a lid. Then, add the baking soda and mix well. If you’d like, you can add a few drops of other essential oils. Store it in a cool place and use as a natural deo stick!

Rub it on to your hair and scalp, wear a shower cap, and leave on for hours. This is the best way to moisturise your scalp. The treatment won’t work too well if you leave it on for only an hour.

4) Soothe Psoriasis or Eczema!
