The past week I have had very tickly-itchy nostrils to accompany my itchy ears that I have had for ages now. Today I decided to put a little bit of Coconut oil in my nostrils and pinch and massage. I have had to blow my nose quite a lot so repeating the process very sparingly. The itch is still there but very faint now. I also put some into my ears, with the same, although slightly less effect to the itch and of course nothing coming out. Has anyone else used CO in this way? I have been putting it on my scalp and my hair is now improved. I have used some today as face and hand cream. Can it be used as a cleanser?
