Coconut Oil is Your Friend

I’ve been turning to coconut oil for everything lately. From after-sun to conditioner, toothpaste to tasty recipes, and everything in between, its superpowers are endless! Look for unrefined, organic, virgin, and raw to maximize benefits.

  • Hand lotion
  • Chap stick/lip balm (BEST healer of chapped lips, works instantly!)
  • After sun lotion
  • Hair conditioner/mask (melt with heat, apply to wet or dry hair. If dry, let sit for a few hours and wash out in shower)
  • Sweet potato topper
  • Whitening toothpaste
  • Eye cream (rub around/under eyes)
  • Baking and/or sautéing oil
  • Face lotion (rub on dry skin – only dry areas NOT entire face, it is oil!)
  • Defrizz (rub small amount in hands and apply to top of hair to stop frizz)
  • Body scrub (combine with sea salt, sugar, or ground coffee beans to exfoliate)
  • Eye makeup remover
  • Eczema treatment (rub on inflamed areas)
  • Popcorn topper (better than butter!)
  • Massage oil (just melt a little)
  • Moisturizer (apply to body after shower)
  • Diaper cream
  • Cuticle healer (softens and fights bacteria)
  • Foot cream
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Digestive aid
