Tip of the week - an awesome little known use for coconut oil

If you've read this blog for any length of time, you know that I'm a huge fan of coconut oil for cooking and crafting.  Just when I think I've found all the cool uses for coconut oil, BAM, I find something else that rocks my world.

At my optometrist appointment last year, my eye doctor expressed concern for little bumps I had on the rims of my eyelids (yum).  I wear contacts, and he said that the bumps along with my contact use could eventually impact my vision.  He prescribed me lots of "hot compresses" and pressure on my eye to clear up the bumps.

They didn't budge.  Stupid bumps.  The optometrist said that he would have to prescribe me something to clear those up.  Um, no thanks!

I started using coconut oil to remove my eye makeup at night, and after about a week's use, the little eyelid bumps were gonzo.

Bye bye bumps.

My bumps.

My bumps.

My lovely optical bumps.
