14 Ways To Use Coconut Oil

Updated: Sep 12, 2020

Vita Coco Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is a firm resident in my home and is used weekly if not sometimes daily - but that depends on if I am trying out another product in its place at the time.

I recommend always going for an Organic Raw Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, we don't want any nasties as we are still battling with them daily through pollution and pesticides. There are so many you can purchase in-store or online. I have linked the exact one I use myself.

So this excellent oil can be used for a multitude of things not only internally but also externally. Research shows that this fantastic superfood holds healthy fats called Medium - Chain Fatty Acid (MCFAs) which are Caprylic acid, Lauric acid, and Capric acid.

Below I have listed 15 used and tested ways I have and use this excellent oil to get its amazing benefits.

1. Face Exfoliator

To exfoliate your skin, all you need to do is warm the coconut oil up in the palm of your hand and gently put this all over your face. Then wipe it off with a Muslin Cloth.

2. Face moisturiser

Perfect for your face in the morning or at night. After cleansing just using a little coconut oil, wiping off any residue left and away you go.

3. Body moisturiser

You can body brush and then put all over your skin. Then get in the bath or shower (be careful as it is slippy!). Doing it this way it can move much more in-depth with the heat.

4. Face & Body Sun Factor

Coconut oil has a factor 4 sun protector.

5. Heals and helps skin conditions

Can be used to help improve the skin (Burns, Eczema, Dandruff, Dermatitis and Psoriasis). We are all so different so what might work for one might not for the other.

6. Hair Treatments

Use it as a leave-in conditioning treatment for the hair. With dry hair heat the oil and start to work it into your hair and massage into your scalp. Leave it overnight if you can or a few hours before washing it out with your shampoo.

7. Curly De-Frizzer

Using a little of this after you have washed and conditioned your hair will help tame those unruly frizzy curls. Just put a small pea size (not too much as it could make it look greasy) in your hand, warm it up and scrunch it gently into the areas of concern.

8. Massaging oil for all over the body

Excellent oil to massage with, whether it's your feet, head or partner, this oil makes the perfect oil. Its the perfect texture when warm and it smells nice too.

9. Perfect replacement oil for cooking

Coconut Oil can replace your other cooking oils, adding a different flavour and new proven healing benefits.

10. A boost of nutrients in your smoothies

You can add it to your smoothies creating new flavours and new textures.

11. Lip Balm

If your lips are chapped using a little bit of this will not only make them shine but also will soothe your lips with moisture.

12. Eye Makeup Remover

Coconut oil is a perfect gentle makeup remover for the eye area. Just apply it to a cotton bud pad and gently glide over the area until all make up has gone.

13. Fight Candida

Internally using Coconut oil has been found to help combat Candida albicans which is the fungus accountable for Yeast Infections. (2) Studies have found that it has been as affective as prescribed medicine (1).

14. Coffee Creamer

If you're a coffee lover, this is a dream of making a creamy finish. Make your coffee and put it in a blender with the coconut oil and you will create a fantastic cream flavoured drink with a lovely frothy top.
