In search of the perfect oil for your breast massage? How about giving coconut oil a try. It is one of the best natural oils to use for breast massage and has many additional benefits for your skin as well as your overall health.
First off, you won’t have to worry about it staining your clothes after your breast massage. Olive oil and some other oils used for massage can be thick and tend to stain clothes if not washed off thoroughly from your breasts after your massage. Coconut oil is very light and a little goes a long way. You can use alone or add extracts like Greenbush’s Breast Enhancement Blend or individual herbs like Fenugreek.
Coconut oil also has a very light scent compared to other oils used for breast massage and it is an excellent moisturizer. It is also said to help with stretch marks which is great if you have stretch marks on your breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss/gain, etc.
So coconut oil is great for breast massage but you’re probably wondering – is coconut oil in any way beneficial to breast growth? Well – we weren’t able to find a definite answer but some women have reported that they felt an increase in their breasts when they added coconut oil to their diet. This could be true in that coconut oil does affect your hormones – in a positive way. It is one of the many natural methods used by people to balance their hormones. Coconut oil is also used to help increase milk production in new mothers.
Besides being a great massage oil and possibly helping with breast growth, your jar of coconut oil can offer many additional benefits to you. Here are just a few of them:
Great for the brain health – It is said to help improve brain function and is believed by some to help with Alzheimer symptoms. A doctor claims that she was able to dramatically reverse her husband’s Alzheimer’s symptoms by adding coconut oil to his diet. Dr. Mary T Newport shares her story in her book Alzheimer’s Disease: What if There Was a Cure?
Weight loss – coconut oil is said to help reduce appetite and help you burn more fat, especially around the tummy area.
How do you add coconut oil your diet?
It’s easy to start adding coconut oil to your diet. Many people use it when stir-frying or baking. We put a scoop in our steel cut oats in the morning. Sounds gross but you can barely tell it’s there.
Some people put it in their coffee. Haven’t gotten up the courage to try it that way yet but it seems like a very popular way to get your dose of coconut oil in for the day. You can also add it in your smoothie or just eat it by the spoonful like some people do.
We also like to massage kale with coconut oil for our version of the kale salad from the Whole Foods salad bar. A thicker oil like olive oil would probably work better for this but it’s another way to get coconut oil in our diet without eating it plain by the spoonful.
Skin and Hair benefits
Hair mask – We haven’t tried this yet but coconut oil is supposed to be a great hair mask. Just put it on your hair and wrap with plastic wrap or put on a shower cap. Leave on for a few hours or overnight then wash out.
Oil pulling – Coconut oil is good for oil pulling which is a whole other topic but it is said to help whiten your teeth as well as help with skin complexion. Coconut oil is a less expensive option compared to other oils that are used for oil pulling like sesame and sunflower oils and gets the job done.
Makeup remover – We recently discovered how fabulous coconut oil is for removing makeup. It’s really good at breaking down mascara. You don’t need a lot – a little goes a long way. Just be sure not to get it in your eyes. It doesn’t hurt but your vision will be slightly blurred until you get it out or it moves out of your eye naturally – personal experience.
What to look for in coconut oil
There are a ton of different coconut oils on the market, all different types and qualities. Here are the things you should look for when buying coconut oil:
- extra virgin
After much searching and experimenting, we’ve settled with Garden of Life brand coconut oil. They use organic, non-GMO coconuts from the Philippines. The end product is raw, cold-pressed, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil that has a very light coconut taste and smell. The cost is very reasonable ($25 for 32oz) and is available in 16oz or 32oz sizes.
If you’re looking for a higher end coconut oil and don’t mind paying the price for it, Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil is said to be one of the best coconut oils on the market. Their coconuts are wild harvested from Vietnam and go through a patent pending process to extract the oil and preserve all the benefits of the oil during the extraction process. Skinny & Co. offer discounts for bulk orders and also have a monthly subscription club.
Tip: Don’t put coconut oil in the refrigerator. Did it with our first jar ever thinking it would help keep it fresh but instead, got a jar of ridiculously hard coconut oil that was useless. Had to wait for it to warm up some before we could get a single bit out. Coconut oil does just fine in room temperature. It’ll fluctuate between liquid and semi-solid, depending on what the room temperature is at that time, at least here in Texas. Those that live in colder areas will probably have semi-solid to crazy-solid states for your coconut oil.
