10 Healthy Uses of Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is the new craze in health, healing and beauty and there’s a good reason. Many of the incredible benefits of Coconut Oil stem from its high concentration of healthy fats including the medium chain fatty acid lauric acid. The uses of Coconut Oil are seemingly endless but we’re sharing our top 10 here today.

#1: Boosts Energy

Coconut Oil tastes like, well, coconut. It’s delicious and perfectly safe to eat straight up. Skip the coffee and sugar and take a plunge in a delightful spoonful of Coconut Oil when you need a boost of energy.

#2: Wards off Sickness

Coconut Oil has many long term health benefits that contribute to disease prevention but when you have an immediate illness such as allergy symptoms, sore throat, cough or cold, Coconut Oil can help too. You will help heal your body when you digest it, dab it in your nose, and gargle with it.

#3: Baking

Replace vegetable oils with healthier Coconut Oil in baking recipes. Not only will you get to enjoy the delicious coconut flavor, it will add nutrients to all of your baked goods. Coconut Oil has a high smoke point so it can be used for a variety of cooking and baking purposes.

#4: Heals Skin

Bites, burns, cuts, and sores don’t stand a chance when you apply Coconut Oil on your skin. It absorbs quickly and deeply to soothe problem areas in no time.

#5: Deodorizer

For personal hygiene use and around your house, Coconut Oil has natural antibacterial properties that keep odors and germs at bay.

#6: Nourishes Skin

Coconut Oil is a natural toning and moisturizing skin salve that can be used in many ways all over the body including as a face mask, exfoliant, moisturizer (on rough patches from hands and elbows, to knees and feet), skin softener (think cuticles and lips), cleanser, make-up remover and under-eye cream. When you use Coconut Oil in your beauty routine you’ll be left with gorgeous, supple, younger-looking skin.

#7: Toothpaste

You can make your own toothpaste using Coconut Oil and baking soda. These two ingredients help fight microbes that land in your mouth and can even help whiten your teeth.

#8: Skin Barrier

Protect your skin from bug bites, chlorine and sun by coating it with Coconut Oil before heading outdoors or to the pool. Coconut Oil creates a barrier against unwanted skin exposures and absorption.

#9: Relaxation

Sit back and relax with Coconut Oil essential oils for your skin or mixed into your bathwater.

#10: Revitalizes Hair

When your hair needs a pick-me-up, Coconut Oil is a terrific solution. After washing, coat your hair with coconut oil as a deep conditioner that will add moisture and silkiness to your strands. You can also use it to stimulate hair growth in slow-growing areas, treat split-ends and tame frizz.

These are only just a taste of the phenomenal health uses of Coconut Oil. Between practical uses in the kitchen, around your home and for beauty and healing purposes, you’ll want a jar of Zokiva’s all-natural Coconut Oil in every room of your house!
