Did you know, coconut oil can be used for more than just food? Recently I have been trying a few different ways to use virgin coconut oil besides in cooking/baking.

Here are a couple of my favorite non-food uses for virgin coconut oil!
- Hair Serum: When my hair is damp, I put a few drops in my hands, rub them together a bit and then starting at the base of my head under the hair, I run my hands through my hair. It leaves my hair soft and a little shiny. I don’t usually touch the very front of my head/hair, just in case the oil is to thick on my hands. Don’t want to leave things greasy. 🙂
- It works great for eye make -up remover! Doesn’t sting a bit.
- As a teen my nails were weak and brittle, so I mixed a couple drops of Tea-Tree Oil with a tablespoon of Coconut Oil, and massaged it into my nails and cuticles daily. I noticed after time they grew much stronger. I stored it in an old lip balm container.
- Speaking of lips. For kids who hate regular lip balm because it may sting, coconut oil is awesome!
- Mix coconut oil with sugar for an amazing sugar scrub for your feet. Again, I add a bit of Tea Tree oil as well, for it’s antiseptic qualities.
- For married couples….. (don’t mix with latex)
- And finally, one I want to try; Coconut Oil Toothpaste.
So, I know there are a lot of uses for coconut oil out there. But those are my favorite non-food uses for coconut oil.
