It makes a handy all purpose skin, hair and nail oil – as an aftershave oil, after sun oil, light hair and scalp oil, as a base for mineral makeup or makeup removal. I keep FCO in my Essential Oils First Aid Kit for use as a carrier, for removing essential oils which have accidentally gotten in the wrong place, or as a quick mouth freshener using the oil pulling technique.
