  1. Soft Body & Skin. When I’m traveling, I actually pick up coconut oil once off the plane. It’s my go-to body lotion and hair softener.

  2. Vegan Alternative to Butter. Just add some pink salt and VOILA this is a surprisingly enjoyable replacement for butter.

  3. Cooking Oil. Coconut oil is made in a way that sustains heat much better than, say, olive oil. While olive oil is great on a salad, coconut oil is a much more suitable oil for cooking.

  4. Healing Salve. Anytime we have a scratch or skin irritation, coconut oil is the first option for softening. It’s anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and so very soothing!

  5. Base for FUDGE or CHOCOLATE!! Mix equal parts cacao powder and melted coconut oil, then add a pinch of salt, plus vanilla and sweetener to your liking. Once it’s well mixed, you can add it to chocolate molds, stick it in the freezer, and VOILA, you have delicious chocolate in about 20 minutes. YUMMM!!!

 
In the evening, I use a cleansing oil - coconut oil also works - to remove makeup.
