Olive oil

Good for: Deep conditioning and de-frizzing hair, and also can be rubbed on hands and body to soften skin.

Limitations: Let it absorb into your skin before dressing or getting into bed, as oils are messy.

Can replace: Store-bought, deep-conditioning treatments, body oil, body and hand lotion.
