Soothing massages with coconut oil
Thanks to the high content of high-quality and also beneficial ingredients, coconut oil is ideal for use as a massage oil. The fresh coconut scent is reminiscent of the tropics and also the skin is supplied with many nourishing substances.
As a massage oil coconut oil is very versatile due to its special consistency. The oil can be used in both liquid and solid form.
For the handling this is an advantage: While coconut oil is solid under 25 degrees Celsius and can be portioned so well, it liquefies for the pleasant massage when it comes into contact with the skin.
If the oil is to be used directly in liquid form, it can be melted slowly in a water bath beforehand. In addition, coconut oil can be excellently combined with other oils.
Coconut oil moisturizes the skin
The oil contains mainly lauric acid. This provides the skin with moisture. In addition, many vitamins and minerals are contained in it. Particularly noteworthy is vitamin E, which is not only beneficial but also important for the skin.
Vitamin E is said to have an antioxidant effect, which is why it supports the regeneration of skin cells and can thus prevent damage as well as aging of the skin.
Coconut oil can be used for massage on any skin type, because the high-quality ingredients can have a positive effect even on sensitive, dry and sun-damaged skin.
The valuable ingredients in coconut oil provide a velvety-soft skin feeling through the massage. Especially skin areas like elbows or even knees need regular moisturizing – coconut oil can be easily applied to these areas during a full body massage.
Coconut oil against cellulite
It is mainly women who struggle with it: Cellulite. The so-called orange peel skin is a widespread cosmetic problem, which is caused by a weakness of the connective tissue and can be combated with the right diet, exercise and a targeted massage.
Such a massage can be done with coconut oil that the oil penetrates deep into the skin. The natural lymph flow can be promoted by it, whereby a regeneration of the connective tissue becomes possible.
If the coconut oil is massaged into the affected skin areas with a soft massage brush for a time of about 15 minutes, it works particularly well against cellulite. In addition, a massage with coconut oil can promote blood circulation, which can improve the complexion in the long term.
Coconut oil is also suitable for babies
A baby massage is something wonderful and gives even newborns a feeling of closeness. With coconut oil, the delicate and sensitive baby skin can be massaged without hesitation, because there are no additives or preservatives in it – provided that it is a native and cold-pressed oil.
With such an untreated coconut oil from organic cultivation parents are on the safe side, because it contains no pesticides or other chemical substances. So the baby’s skin is not damaged.
Head massage with coconut oil? No problem!
Head massages are beneficial for body and soul. They help with concentration problems, can relieve headaches, provide relaxation and contribute to better blood circulation in the scalp, which can also promote hair growth. Even with itchy scalp and fast greasy hair a head massage can be helpful.
If coconut oil is also used, this is positive in two respects: not only the massage does good, with the oil also scalp and hair are cared for.
When coconut oil is massaged into the hair, it strengthens and moisturizes it. When massaged into hair, it is also helpful against split ends, can counteract dandruff and even prevent hair loss.
Coconut oil also makes hair more resilient and better able to withstand weather and environmental conditions.
The advantage: Unlike artificial and industrially produced care products, coconut oil is absolutely natural and therefore does not cause skin irritations or allergic reactions.
