In this episode of Homemade Beauty, Irene discusses the beauty uses of coconut oil. Coconut oil smells wonderful and has many health and beauty benefits. You can use coconut oil as a skin moisturizer to soften elbows and dry patches. You can also apply coconut oil to the ends of your hair and massage it in slowly with your fingertips. The coconut oil helps take care of split ends and gives hair a beautiful shine.
