Coconut Oil is My Windex

23 May

So, surely you remember the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding. If you haven’t seen it, go out and get it and watch it right now. I’ll wait. 💬💬💬💬💬💬💬

Ok, got it, watched it…..good.

You know how Gus had this thing for Windex? Well I have this thing for Coconut Oil.


(I picked up this info graphic from Femme Fabulous )

Anyway, I slather this stuff on myself about 3 times a day. Seriously, I use it on my hair, I use it all over my body (I haven’t purchased lotion in months), I feel like a scaly old alligator without it.

Out of sunscreen? Eh, I’ll just make some out of this coconut oil and zinc oxide.
Lotion? Don’t need it, got my coconut oil.
Lip balm? I’m good…….coconut oil mixed with a little vitamin oil.
Moroccan oil for my hair? I’ll just see what this coconut oil can do.
Vegan “butter” on toast? No thank you, I’ll just use my coconut oil instead.

You get the idea.

Last night, my son and I were watching his sister play softball. The mosquitos were thick (and big) and my boy was getting devoured. I, on the other hand, was not bitten once.

He was all, “What the hell, why are they only coming after me!?”
I said, “I don’t know, must be the coconut oil (mixed with tea tree oil) I used earlier, they aren’t bothering me at all.”
To that he replied, “You need to seek treatment for your coconut oil addiction.”

Fast forward to the end of the game…. He’s itchy as hell saying, “I’m going to need some of that coconut oil bug repellant of yours for the next game.”

The other day, while on a hike, I got a scratch on my arm from a branch. So I cleaned the area and rubbed in come coconut oil on it. My son looked at me and said, “Neosporin, ever heard of it?” I said, “I’m good, got my coconut oil.” He shot back with, “Whatever, Gus Portokalos.”

What can I say……Coconut oil is my Windex. 🙂
