11 Ways To Use Coconut Oil


You all know how I love my coconut oil so anytime I see different ways to use it, I try to pass it on to you. If you haven't jumped on the coconut oil train yet, why not? Come on, get on board!!!

11 Ways To Use Coconut Oil

1. As a butter substitute in baking

Coconut oil easily replaces butter in most baking recipes. Just substitute room-temperature coconut oil for butter at a 1:1 ratio (by weight).

2. On toast (preferably gluten free smile emoticon

Spread coconut oil on toast for a slightly sweet butter or jam alternative.

3. In a supercharged smoothie

Add some oomph to your morning smoothie with coconut oil. Just a tablespoon or two will give you a boost of healthy fats.

4. To soothe a sore throat

You've probably heard the old hot-tea-and-honey remedy for a sore throat. But a spoonful of coconut oil in tea works just as well!

5. In freezer fudge

Whip up a batch of this vegan, raw, Paleo-friendly fudge in your freezer. Mix together 1 cup of nut butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, and several tablespoons of cacao powder (depending on how chocolatey you like your fudge). Throw it into the freezer for 30 minutes, and enjoy!

6. As a leave-in conditioner

Banish split ends and condition an unruly head of hair by adding coconut oil into your haircare routine. Before showering, rub a small amount of coconut oil through your hair and leave it in for 10 minutes.

7. To stop bug bites from itching

The worst thing you can do to a bug bite is scratch it. Instead, slather on some coconut oil. The oil forms a protective layer to allow the bug bites or stings to heal, and even soothes away that annoying itch.

8. As a moisturizer

Coconut oil—or really any oil—makes a great natural lotion. Just rub a small amount on your skin to gently moisturize your whole body.

9. As a lip balm

Since coconut oil is so moisturizing, it makes a great natural lip balm. Your lips will feel super soft—and taste like the tropics.

10. In the bath

Skip the bubble bath in favor of some coconut oil and essential oils. Soothing coconut oil will slowly condition your skin, and the sweet scent of your favorite essential oil will help you relax.

11. As a makeup remover

Wiping away your face and eyelids with coconut oil will gently remove your makeup and moisturize your skin.
