Coconut Oil Health Hacks: A Peek at What You Missed

The Good Life Massage put on a class on the evening of Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at our new location on 200 South Tobin in Renton. This was our first event in our new location. It was great to have so many people come out and experience an event in our new space for the first time.

Owner-operators Kylee Davis and Amy Gunn were on hand to demonstrate and discuss the many uses of coconut oil as a natural moisturizer and cleanser, as well as it’s uses for better health and nutrition.

Several of our products use coconut oil including …

These and other can be found on our products page or through our Etsy shop.

Kylee and Amy have both used coconut oil for years, both in their massage practice and at home for personal use.

One of the more unusual uses of coconut oil covered in the class was oil pulling: the practice of using pure coconut oil as a mouthwash, swishing for about five minutes a day as part of your oral hygiene regimen.

Oil pulling is a great way to keep your mouth clean and your teeth strong and healthy

“Oil pulling seems kind of strange at first. You might think it would make you want to gag or something, but it’s actually not bad. There’s no flavor, good or bad. But it’s really good for your teeth and the health of your mouth overall. It’s a great way to supplement your regular oral hygiene in a natural way,” Amy said.

Registered students went home with a free goodie bag that included …

  • a tub of coconut oil with applicator sticks
  • Moisture Mask sampler
  • Eye Cream sampler
  • Lip Balm sampler

… a package valued at more than $10

Class participants went home with some awesome swag!
