10 Uses for Coconut Oil!

Coconut oil is pretty popular right now and for good reason! A lot of people are still scratching their heads about what are the best ways to use it so I thought I’d compile a list of effective ways to use coconut oil!

1. Toothpaste!

This one was new to me and I haven’t tried it myself but I definitely thought that this was worth sharing! This is safe for both humans and animals. Just combine equal parts baking soda and coconut oil. You can add stevia to sweeten and/or an essential oil for flavour.

2. Hair Treatment

Just massage coconut oil through the ends of your hair, leave it overnight and rise it out in the morning for soft and shiny hair. This will also help reduce frizz.

3. Moisturiser

Whip up some coconut oil, a few drops of vitamin E oil, and an essential oil together for a quick skin lotion!

4. Face and Body Scrub

1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 cup sea salt
1/4 cup organic sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice

You could even add an essential oil if you wanted the scrub to be scented. Then combine and massage gently into skin.

5. Lip Balm

You can use straight coconut oil as a lip balm. And if you scoop some coconut oil into a small container, you’ll have a portable, lip balm.

6. Frying Oil/Pan Greaser

I use coconut oil all the time when cooking and I would highly recommend this one because it makes dishes a lot healthier!

7. Mosquito Bite Treatment

I get terrible mosquito bites and no treatment seems to work but this natural treatment is a great way to soothe the itching mosquito bite and help the healing process.

8. Makeup Remover

Apply some coconut oil with a cotton pad to your eyes and face at the end of the day. The oil breaks down the makeup.

9. Butter Substitute

You can substitute butter for coconut oil in baking and even on popcorn.

10. Makeup Brush Cleaner

Just like as a makeup remover, the oil breaks through the dirt and makeup on the brushes.
You can try using 1cup of warm water and 1tsp of coconut oil.

I hope this gives you a few ideas of ways to use coconut oil and incorporate it into your life!
