I am obsessed with coconut oil. Not only does it taste amazing, coconut oil is a healthy and versatile oil that is excellent for high heat cooking. It’s also full of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which the body can digest easily and burn off quickly for an instant burst of energy. In addition, because of its healthy saturated fat content, coconut oil can improve blood cholesterol levels and reduce the body’s risk of heart disease. For a few years now, I have told myself that I won’t put anything on my skin that I wouldn’t eat, and coconut oil has been so useful and beneficial both in the kitchen and in my skin care routine.
Here are some ways that I use coconut oil:
- Blended in my coffee when I need extra energy
- In a stir fry
- As a butter substitute in baking
- In smoothies
- To season my cast iron skillet
- As a mouth wash in oil pulling for my dental health
- As a makeup remover
- In a DIY body butter
- As a natural sunscreen
- As a leave-in conditioner
- To soothe a cut or a bug bite
- On the dogs when they have an itchy hot spot
