You may know that coconut oil is extremely good for you, but how do you use it? Many people aren’t sure of how to incorporate this beneficial oil into their diet, apart from using it to cook with. There are plenty of other ways to use this tasty product, though.

Hair conditioner

Rub a little oil into your hair after a shower and you will experience the benefits of this natural conditioner. It will not only leave your hair soft and manageable, it adds shine, too. If you are also taking the oil internally, you will see even more benefits.

Fine line eraser

Use this lovely oil as a skin lotion and you will notice that fine lines begin to disappear. After a few treatments with the oil, you won’t want to be without it.

Massage oil

With a pleasant smell, coconut oil is ideal for giving massages. It moisturizes the skin naturally and feels great. The oil is also useful in relieving stress when you massage your temples with it.

Smoothies

Add a little coconut oil to a smoothie for added flavor and a creamier texture. You can easily create a piña colada smoothie by adding coconut oil to a pineapple smoothie. It will also give you a big nutritional boost.

Baking

Add this oil to your baking for a boost in nutrition. It is also handy for no-bake desserts, as it will harden very quickly in the freezer.

Makeup remover

Apply the cool coconut oil as you would any other makeup remover. It has the added benefit of removing fine lines and moisturizing the skin. You can nourish your face as you get rid of the makeup. It is also safe for the eyes.

Oil pulling

This is a technique where you swish the oil about in your mouth. It is supposed to remove toxins from the body. The method requires swishing oil between your teeth and around your mouth for up to 20 minutes and then spitting it out. It’s best to heat the oil enough to melt it first

Coconut oil is packed with nutrition and healthy fats. It is also great for increasing the absorption of minerals and vitamins from other sources. By adding this to your daily routine, you will find that you are healthier and happier very quickly.
