140 Uses for Coconut Oil – Complete Guide

Uses for coconut oil you can use for health benefits, beauty, and even household uses.

coconut oilBe sure to use organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil. Why? This coconut oil has been minimally processed and has the vitamins and minerals intact and not damaged from heat.

It’s rare to find cold pressed coconut oil when I go to Target, they’re mostly expeller-pressed.

This Island fresh coconut oil is pure, organic, cold-pressed, and in my opinion the best smelling kind you can buy. It’s my new favorite to use for both beauty and cooking. Nobody has paid me to say anything about this coconut oil and nobody gave me this for free.

I want to show you how this pure coconut melts into your skin

Coconut oil is actually fun to apply when its in solid form. Just opening the lid of this jar smells refreshing. You just scoop a spoonful of the soft waxy goodness into the palm of your hand. Apply wherever you want using your fingertips. The coconut oil melts with the warmth of your skin. I used a small 1/2 TSP to show you on the back of my hand pictured below. It just slowly melted and slid down the back of my hand faster than butter. Coconut oil is lighter than olive oil, so it never feels greasy. It also smells nicer than olive oil. 😉

Coconut oil has a cooling effect when you apply it to your skin. It’s a unique sensation, and great for a hot day. I really can’t explain it. When I apply coconut oil to my face, I feel it melt into my skin and it feels amazing when the warmth of your skin and coldness of the coconut collide. Go try it and see for yourself. 🙂

Uses for Coconut Oil

Here’s the complete list of coconut beauty benefits

Coconut oil is my favorite for moisturizing my face and body, it just smells so amazing and absorbs so deeply. I do use other oils that don’t smell as good such as rosehip seed and olive. I like to apply the coconut oil on top of these oils to cancel out the smell.
