Coconut oil, a staple ingredient within our home and one that YOU NEED (STAT!) for a variety of health and beauty reasons! Today we’ll be discussing 7 AMAZING benefits and ways that you can use coconut oil! If you haven’t already, order your tub of coconut oil with our favorite brand, HERE! 

7 Amazing Ways to Use Coconut Oil 

  1. Cooking + Baking: Packed full of essential vitamins, healthy fat, minerals, and nutrients, coconut oil is an excellent replacement for traditionally used oils (i.e. canola or vegetable oil) or butter. Use it to sauté veggies and meats, grease baking dishes, and as an oil or butter substitute while baking.

  2. Natural Skin Hydration: Coconut oil is extremely nourishing for the skin and is truly an organic form of natural beauty. Get in the habit of using coconut oil or Blossoming Mommy and Baby’s Coconut Whip Lotion instead of toxic and harmful store bought lotions. Bonus Tip: Coconut oil is a GREAT makeup remover! Just place a little dab of oil on a tissue and viola!

  3. Carrier Oil + Massage Oil: Similar to skin hydration, coconut oil can also be used as a carrier oil if applying essential oils to the body and can also be used as a massage oil. Nix the chemical and fragrant infused massage oils and opt to use an oil from its pure and natural source. Coconut oil will warm and melt in your hands, so massage away!

  4. Multiple Makeup Products: Coconut oil is the primary ingredient within many makeup and beauty products that are made naturally.

  5. Immune Strengthener: Coconut oil is comprised of a variety of power packed health ingredients including lauric acid and other immune boosting components that help in preventing viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.

  6. Coffee: Coconut oil may be used in coffee for both health and energy reasons! Adding 1 tablespoon a day to your regular cup of joe can help give you an extra boost of energy and increased digestion throughout the day.

  7. Hair Hydration: Coconut oil is an excellent way to hydrate your hair. If your hair is naturally dry (like mine!), adding 1-2 tablespoons on the ends and massaging into your scalp will provide you with an uber soft and hydrating hair mask!

There you have it! Just 7 of the many ways you can incorporate coconut oil into your lifestyle for a healthy and holistic touch! Which ways resonate best with you and your family? What ways do you use coconut oil? We’d love to hear below!
