3. Fight frizz: use a small amount in your hair for instant control

4. Face: use as makeup remover, including eyes

5. Lips: use in place of lip balm

6. Cuticles: massage into cuticles to eliminate dryness and stimulate nail growth

7. Body moisturizer: use as you would a normal body lotion for overall treatment, focusing especially on dry elbows

8. Body scrub: mix with sea or rock salt and exfoliate (mix with sugar for sensitive skin)

9. Prevent stretch marks: apply to skin daily to avoid scarring during pregnancy

10. Soothing balm: apply to skin irritated by poison ivy, oak or sumac

11. Feet: rub on feet to hydrate and condition skin; fights athlete’s foot and low level fungus
