10 Ways I Use Coconut Oil Every Day!


Since buying my first jar of coconut oil more than 5 years ago, I have found many, many ways to put it to good use.  

I picked up my first jar at Trader Joe's after seeing an old YouTube video about its benefits as a hair treatment.  It sounded like a trendy thing to do if you were trying to be super-healthy, so I hopped on that bandwagon.  

One overnight hair treatment & a headful of soft and shiny hair later... & I was hooked.

I have since found so many other ways to incorporate coconut oil into my life, and am never without a jar... or two!  It has changed my hair, my skin, AND my cooking.

Here are 10 of my favorite uses:

  1. As a butter replacement in baked goods.
  2. As a lip scrub (see my 2-Ingredient Coconut Lip Scrub.)
  3. As a massage oil (so much cheaper than the fancy ones.)
  4. As a coffee mix-in for "bulletproof coffee".
  5. As an all-over body lotion.
  6. As a facial moisturizer (the only thing I will use on my sensitive skin when it's irritated.)
  7. As a makeup remover (mascara, eyeliner, foundation-- it takes it all off!)
  8. As a cooking fat for pan-frying & stir-frys.
  9. As a hair mask (warmed in your hands, distributed from roots to ends, then left on overnight.)
  10. As a cuticle treatment for longer, healthier nails.


I can't imagine anyone out there who couldn't find a use for coconut oil in their life.  So, pick some up at your local grocery store or Whole Foods Market, or add a jar to your online cart!
