Three Household Uses For Coconut Oil

April 8, 2014 1:19 pm

Do you have coconut oil in your kitchen arsenal? While coconut oil adds flavor to many dishes, it also boasts health benefits, as it's said to aid in the treatment of heart disease, diabetes, thyroid conditions, and chronic fatigue. Along with the added flavor and health benefits, there are many household uses for coconut oil. Here are three:

Skin and Hair
Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer. Skip the lotion and apply some coconut oil right to the irritated spot. The oil will moisturize your skin faster than lotion and won't leave your skin greasy. The oil can also be used as a conditioner for your hair.

Insect Repellent
We may enjoy the smell of coconut oil, but insects do not. Mix some coconut oil with another essential oil, like peppermint oil or lavender oil. Apply to your skin and enjoy a day in the sun without any annoying pests. If you forgot to apply insect repellent, a small dab of coconut oil can help ease the itch of mosquito bites.

Does your apartment need a little sprucing up? Use coconut oil as a furniture polish, leather cleaner, and stain remover. Your whole apartment can be cleaned without any harsh chemical products.
