Use coconut oil to eliminate odours
Remember Findley’s recommendation that your coconut oil should be cold-pressed? Here’s why: Heat treating coconut oil removes the aroma, she says. “When you open that jar you need to be overwhelmed with that coconut smell,” Findley says. To make your own DIY coconut-scented “candle” minus the wax, mix 1⁄4 cup baking soda with 1⁄4 cup cornstarch. Then mix in 6 tablespoons of coconut oil, leave it open in a small glass and your home will smell like a tropical paradise 365 days a year.
