Oh, coconut oil! It seems like everyone and their mother is using this magic ingredient these days, but with so many amazing benefits, who wouldn’t?!
Now that you know why coconut oil is such a powerhouse ingredient, here are some additional uses for it that we love:
-A tablespoon on a cotton pad to wipe off eye/face makeup
-Rub it onto your lips for a soothing lip balm
-Coat your legs with it in the shower instead of shaving cream
Around The House
-For those with crafty kids, use it to get those crayon stains off your walls!
-Keep dirt off of your garden tools
-Remove sticker labels from your plastic, glass or wood surfaces
-Use in replace of canola or olive oil when baking our muffins, cupcakes, bread and pizza
-To make desserts extra creamy and indulgent, add in (like these Matcha Coconut Cake Balls) about 2-4 tbsp and freeze! When the coconut oil freezes, the consistency is fudge-like
-Swap out butter for coconut oil and roast your veggies in it!
Keep in mind when purchasing coconut oil, try to be unrefined, virgin and organic when possible! Unrefined coconut oil has been pressed at a low heat and filtered, rather than refined which uses high heat. The high heat kills the active antioxidants and compounds in the coconut oil that are useful for us.
