coconut oil

Coconut oil is great for cooking and baking because it has a high smoke point.  It’s perfect to use as a butter replacement or for making a delicious stir fry.  But did you also know that there are many, many other uses for coconut oil?  Some of these may surprise you!

  • Lip balm.  Coconut oil makes a great all natural alternative to store bought lip balms and will make your lips soft and smooth.
  • Body moisturizer.  Apply to your skin after shower for super soft skin.
  • Prevent stretch marks.  Apply to your skin to keep skin smooth and healthy.
  • Leave in overnight conditioner.  Rub a small amount into hair (mostly at ends) and put hair into loose bun at night.  Wash out in the morning for a deep-conditioning treatment just like you would get at the salon (without the outrageous price).
  • Natural energizer.  Eat a teaspoon straight from the spoon for a natural energy boost each day.
