Coconut Oil…What’s All The Fuss About?

Coconut oil is seriously one of my favorite things on the planet! It has so many uses! I use it in my skincare regimen, I cook with it, I use it to heal what ails me. The list goes on! When purchasing coconut oil, I always recommend looking for organic, unrefined virgin coconut oil (ideally in a glass jar rather than plastic). Here are a few of my favorite uses for this miracle product. We never go a day without it in my home!

  1. Diaper Cream: Safe for cloth diapers!
  2. Eye Makeup Remover: Simply apply some coconut oil to a cotton round and wipe away!
  3. Cooking: It has a high smoke point and is great for baking, replacing butter or in a stir fry. I LOVE making my eggs with coconut oil. Yum!
  4. Massage oil
  5. Natural sexual lubricant
  6. Cradle Cap: Simply rub in, let sit for a few minutes, then comb out
  7. Eczema: Apply regularly throughout the day to affected areas
  8. Chapstick to heal dry lips
  9. Natural SPF 4
  10. Oil pulling: Swish a TBSP of oil in your mouth for 20 minutes first thing in the morning, before putting anything else in your mouth. Then spit into the trash and brush your teeth.
  11. Stimulate hair growth: Rub into your scalp
  12. Nutrition: A great source for healthy fat
  13. Moisturizer: Great for dry skin!
