The Many Uses of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been in the media recently for being a healthy, beneficial oil. While most often sold with other cooking oils and used in, well, cooking, coconut oil has many, many other uses, making it quite the multitasking oil! This also means if you score a good deal on coconut oil, or grab a several-pound tub from your local big-box store, you can get quite a bit of use out of this one item, making it a potentially thrifty choice! What are some of the other uses for coconut oil?

Daily moisturizer: Coconut oil is solid at room temperature (unless you live in a warm, tropical area, in which case, store your coconut oil in a refrigerator or other cool place), meaning it’s actually quite easy to dip your fingers in a tub and scoop out a small slab to rub on your skin. Some people with sensitive skin find they tolerate coconut oil just fine. Pregnant women sometimes find that daily use helps reduce stretch marks.

Lip Balm: Do you have an empty lip balm tin lying around? Scoop some coconut oil into it and go! It’s easy to dab a little on your lips during the day, and you get to smell faintly of coconut!

Makeup Remover: Coconut oil can strip even the most stubborn of “24 hour lasting!” makeup off of your face. Place a tiny bit of melted coconut oil on a soft washcloth and gently scrub your face. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Easy!

Household Lubricant: Out of WD-40 and your creaky door hinge is driving you crazy? Want to get intimate but the KY Jelly container is empty? Coconut oil can substitute for both of those uses! It’s not a long term solution, but it can lubricate squeaky metal parts around your home until you can get to the hardware store, and if you want to use it for more intimate purposes, just keep in mind that it’s not compatible with latex.

What else have you used coconut oil for?
