  • Oil pulling – rinse your mouth out morning and night with coconut oil to kill the bacteria in your mouth which can cause disease and  inflammation in the body.
  • Checkout this great video from Sarah @ holistichabits explaining all about oil pulling.
  • Hair growth – coconut oil stimulates hair growth . Massage  into the hair follicles and watch the magic begin.
  • Toothpaste – coconut oil, baking soda and peppermint oil blended together make a fluoride free toothpaste.
  • Improves Digestion – coconut oil improves digestion and helps with the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome due to its antimicrobial properties.
  • Weight Management – coconut oil can help with maintaining a healthy weight because the body does not store the healthy fat in coconut oil as fat, it uses it to produce energy instead.
  • Balances Blood Sugar – coconut oil has been shown to reduce cravings also. It can help you feel fuller for longer, thus preventing you from snacking between meals.
  • Candida – coconut oil can be used as a treatment for candida, the capric acid in coconut oil has antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties which can be effective in killing the yeast.
  • Body Scrub – mix 1 part coconut oil with 2 parts sea salt and then add 5 drops of essential oil  . Massage gently all over your body focusing more on the elbows, knees and feet which are drier.
  • Body Moisturizer  – coconut oil soothes, nourishes, heals and moisturize the skin and reduces cellulite.
  • Shave Cream – coconut oil can be used as a natural shave cream and after shave lotion.
