Coconut Oil

October 7, 2016 

Coconut oil is a fairly new hot item on the market. Popularized by the paleo diet, many people have found that this super healthy oil is more than a cooking ingredient. This oil has proven useful in every room in your house and not just your kitchen.


To start, coconut oil has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties which makes it great to fight bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can cause indigestion. It also aids with the absorption of vital nutrients. It’s a great oil to cook and bake with because it’s high in natural saturated fats that can increase healthy cholesterol (HDL) and can convert the bad (LDL) cholesterol in to HDL.


Take your oil into the bathroom! After your shower, apply a small amount of coconut oil to your body for a natural way to hydrate your skin. You can also use it while shaving. If you mix equal parts coconut oil and sugar you can make a DIY body scrub. It can take your makeup off as well as improve your skin by helping reduce wrinkles and fighting acne. Coconut oil can also improve dandruff by being massaged into your scalp and can fight fly-aways and fizz by being applied directly onto you tips. You can also apply it on your underarms to fight body odor.


Now bring into your living room! Coconut oil conditions wooden furniture and can also serve as an all-nature goo-gone. Buff a small amount of oil on your leather furniture for a quick, easy, and natural conditioning (works on leather shoes, boots and pocketbooks too).


Take coconut oil to your garage and wipe away nasty dead bugs and sap from your car.

If you want to remove some rust, leave some oil on the rusted item for a few hours and wash the oil off. Have squeaky hinges? Use a small amount as lubricant.


Your pets can benefit from this amazing oil as well! A small amount will shine up your fur-pal’s coat instantly. You can also add some oil to your pet’s food to improve your pet’s health just as it would improve your health.


Bug bites and scrapes/scratches can also be relieved by applying some coconut oil. Because of its antibacterial properties, it will help heal your wounds and relieve discomfort.


Because coconut oil is natural, it’s great and safe to use around babies and children. You can also use it to moisturize after breastfeeding. Just like using coconut oil in the aforementioned beauty treatments, use it on your baby to hydrate skin, replace toothpaste, treat baby acne, and treat their cuts or burns. If your little Picasso decides to make your walls their next canvas, use coconut oil to take the crayon off!
