Coconut Oil Uses

12:50 PM


I’m sure you’ve all heard about coconut oil, the new it product. You can find it front and center in my pantry, ready to be used for anything. You can use coconut oil for cooking, makeup, or cleaning, but I’m going to show you how I use this magical product.

Beauty
  • Body scrub. Warm the oil until it’s melted and mix with sugar for a scrub to help remove stretch marks and cellulite.
  • Oil pulling. Swish a tablespoon around in your mouth for ten minutes to help whiten your teeth.
  • Primer. Swipe a little bit onto your eyelids and then add your eyeshadow like normal.
  • Makeup brush cleaner. Put a little bit onto your brushes and then clean with water to remove old makeup.
  • Brighten dead ends. Put a dab of coconut oil onto your dead ends after you shower to nourish your hair.
  • Shaving cream. Smother your legs with oil and use as a natural shaving cream.
  • Stretch mark removal. Apply nightly before bedtime to help remove stretch marks.
  • Reduce ingrown hairs and bumps. Apply coconut oil after shaving to help sooth sensitive areas after shaving.  
  • Lip moisturizer. Unlike chapstick, it's hard to loose a tub of coconut oil. Simply coat your lips with a product for a shiny, moisturizing natural lip gloss. 
  • Make perfume last longer. Put it on where you typically put your perfume and then spray/roll on your favorite fragrance to make it last longer.
  • Makeup remover. Works like a charm on waterproff mascara. 
Cooking
  • Butter replacement. Switch out butter for coconut oil for baking and cooking.
  • Coffee creamer. Add coconut oil to naturally sweeten your coffee or tea.
  • Oatmeal flavoring. Replace brown sugar with the sweetness of coconut oil.
  • Cooking oil. Use the oil for frying.
  • Salad dressing. Add a tablespoon to your salad dressings for a hint of sweetness.
Household 
  • Label remover. Remove labels by adding a layer of coconut oil after attempting to first remove the sticker.
  • Multi-purpose cleaner. Use coconut oil to clean kitchen sinks, counter tops, rust, or car interiors.
  • Chewing Gum Remover. Instead of using peanut butter, try coconut oil.
