Coconut Oil Uses

I love coconut!  I’m talking coconut anything: soap, ice cream, lotion, car deodorizers, coconut milk, etc.  I guess it’s the Caribbean Island girl in me– so when coconut oil was declared a healthy alternative to some other fats, you know I was all over that!

Coconut oil has become very popular over the last few years, and there are hundreds of uses for it.  I use it daily both in the kitchen and in the bathroom. In what follows are the main ways that I use it.



  • Add 1 tsp of organic coconut oil to your superfoods shake for a subtle nutty flavor and added creaminess that will make your taste buds happy.
  • Use organic coconut oil in place of other oils to saute vegetables.
  • Substitute organic coconut oil for butter when baking.
  • Condition your wood cutting board by rubbing coconut oil into it.
  • Make bullet proof coffee—this little concoction will fool you into thinking you are having a fancy drink at one of those overpriced coffee shops. Brew your coffee as usual.  Add 1 tsp of organic coconut oil to it and blend it up (blending is a MUST).  Enjoy!


  • Save on lip gloss and dab on some coconut oil. Not only does it give your lips a nice sheen, it also moisturizes them.
  • In the shower, add a small amount of coconut oil to your conditioner for added smoothness and shine. Rinse as usual.
  • Ditch the shaving cream. Smooth on a small amount of coconut oil on your legs and shave away!
  • Use as a full body moisturizer. A little goes a long way, so don’t overdo it.  You want just enough to allow your skin to absorb it.
  • To tame frizzy, brittle ends of your hair, apply a small amount of coconut oil to dry hair. Avoid applying to the roots as this will cause greasiness.

As I mentioned, there are hundreds of uses for coconut oil.  I’d be interested in knowing how you use it, so drop a comment below and let me know!
