coconut oil uses

Coconut oil is kind of like the Windex in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," 'round here. We use it for everything.

1. I love to cook with it. It has so many health benefits, including helping those with a rounder tum lean out! When in solid form, you can also use it in your baking recipes as a substitute for butter. It tastes great too, so that's a huge plus.

2. Coconut oil can be used for removing makeup, even your stubbornest mascara. It's quick, and a healthy alternative to those chemical washes that strip your skin dry! It's naturally antibacterial and antifungal. Rub it all over your face, and wipe it off with a warm, wet washcloth.

3. "Pulling" is when you use coconut oil to clean your teeth and gums. It has also been proven to whiten your teeth, and improve your gum health too. It's half the cost of Whitening Strips, and you get a whole tub of it! Not to mention, it's all natural!

4. I process my hair by coloring it and using heat to style it, so it tends to get dry real quick! To help keep it hydrated, I apply coconut oil to it throughly before bed, sleep on a towel, and the next day wash it out. I do this once to twice a week. My hair is always left feeling like silk, and I sing heavenly praises to the hair goddesses!

5. Use coconut oil as a moisturizer before applying makeup. It is a killer moisturizer.

6. If you ingest a teaspoon to a tablespoon of coconut oil a day, it has been scientifically proven to help you lose weight, increase your energy level, and boost your immune system. It does so much good, how cold you not try it?

  1. How do you do the "pulling"? Do you just brush your teeth with it?
