Coconut oil might just be the most versatile health food on the planet. Not only is it my favorite cooking oil, but coconut oil uses are numerous and can extend to being a form of natural medicine, be used for natural beauty treatments and so much more.The coconut tree is considered the “tree of life” in much of Southeast Asia, India, the Philippines, and other tropical locations. And today, there are over 1,500 studies proving the health benefits of coconut oil.

 

 

1. Cooking at high heat:  Coconut oil is great for cooking at a high heat because of its high smoke point. Many other oils like olive oil can oxidize when heated but because coconut oil is made up of healthy saturated fats it remains stable under high temperatures.

 

2. Buttering  your toast: For breakfast in the morning, try spreading coconut oil on your sprouted grain bread, instead of conventional butter. The slight coconut flavor, more pronounced in the unrefined coconut oils, lends a lovely aroma and taste to your toast.

 

3. Creamer for your coffee: Adding a spoonful of coconut oil to your coffee can give you an extra boost of energy and replace dairy creamer. If you put your hot coffee in a blender, with the coconut oil and your favorite natural sweetener, and blend, you will be amazed at the rich creamy flavor, without adding any dairy. In the Far East, many athletes blend their morning coffee with coconut oil and grass-fed ghee to increase performance and energy.

 

4. Moisturize your skin: By moisturizing, coconut oil delivers a refreshing, healing, burst of moisture that penetrates your skin and works to truly heal it (not just soak in and dry up!) It can feel oily at first, but that’s why it’s important to only use a little-it goes a long way. Give it a minute and it will dry beautifully. Use as you would regular lotion.

 

5. Conditioner: When the teeny tiny overlapping plates that make up our outer hair shaft get rumpled and out of whack, coconut oil is there to smooth those tiny little cells right back into place, and hold them there. You can use it on your entire scalp/head for deep conditioning, but you can generally just use it on your ends, where it’s the hardest for the body’s natural oils to reach, and where the most breakage occurs.

 

6. Weight loss:  Unlike most saturated fats, it’s mainly comprised of medium chain fatty acids, versus long chain fatty acids. This difference in molecular structure means that it doesn’t get packed away as fat as easily and instead is sent straight to the liver to be metabolized, giving you a boost in energy. This energy in turn makes exercising easier, and the exercise in turn helps you lose weight. Another major factor that it plays is as an appetite suppressant. Craving something you shouldn’t be? Have a tablespoon or 2 of coconut oil, and that sensation won’t last long!

 

 

7. Nourish split or dry ends. Trying to grow long and luscious locks? Protect the delicate ends of your hair with a regular treatment of coconut oil. Simply warm a small quantity of oil in the palms of your hands, then gently rub into the tips of the hair shaft. Leave in for at least several hours before rinsing, or wait until your next hair wash.

 

8. To remove eye makeup: Yes, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara! Put a little of this organic coconut oil  on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well. The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too. Once you're done, wash your face as usual.

 

9. Shave naturally:  Forget chemical shaving creams and say hello to coconut oil! Lather your legs with a generous coating of oil and slide over your razor. You’ll nourish your skin and achieve a silky close shave! 
 

10. Polish your furniture to a high shine: Many commercial furniture waxes and polishes contain artificial chemicals. We breathe these chemicals into our lungs (and therefore our bloodstream) or absorb them into our skin when we contact the furniture. Coconut oil can make a great natural alternative… Just be sure to patch test an area first!
