Another good use for coconut oil is to heal chemical burns. I had not seen my husband for 20 days and decided to do something nice to suprise him, used veet to get rid of all my pubic hair and ended up with a bad chemical burn all over my girly parts. Put coconut oil on that night and the next mornign and by afternoon it was healed up. side note never use veet on your sensitive parts.
LMAO - that is so funny !!!! I also had a wee veet moment. Can't remember how I solved that one, but if I ever do the 'veet too close to the stingy bits' again - I shall remember the coconut tale.
BTW I hope the reunion went well !!!!! wink wink !!!!!
I used a concoction of hot salt water, and 2 drops of tea tree oil to treat an infected throat, along with some vitamin c supplements. It took a little over a week, but it worked and I didn't need to take the anti-biotics.
Also, I treat those terrible little mouth ulcers with neat tea tree oil on a q-tip, it provides immediate relief, and I like to image it helps them heal too.
Gwamma, the reunion went great!!! And thanks to the coconut oil I didn't have to explain why my lady parts were all red and burnt.
Aloe Vera (straight from the plant) works great for burns and sunburn.
Swimming in salt water works wonders for clearing sinuses
Contrast showers work great for recovery.
