You can simply use it as a replacement for any vegetable oil you use in cooking or for any recipe you make. If you are a smoothy lover, try to add a bit of coconut oil in your morning recipe so you can feel even more energized during the day. For an all-day energy boost, mix a tablespoon of chia seeds with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Make sure you take this in the morning and never at night though. You can even add coconut oil in your morning coffee for a creamier taste.

When it comes to your beauty routine, you can use natural coconut oil as a basic lotion for your skin or as a part of eye-makeup removing routine. You can also use it in a homemade deodorant as its natural antibacterial properties make coconut oil very helpful in fighting bad odours. Furthermore, you can also use it as a natural SPF sunscreen on days when the sun is not that strong. You can use it as a lip balm, a natural lubricant, shave cream and after shave lotion, as a solution for dry and flaky elbows, etc.
Uses around the home
If you have leather furniture in your home, rubbing a small amount of coconut oil on real leather will make it softer and shinier. If you are a pet owner and your furry friend is dealing with some skin issue, gently rub coconut oil on its skin. You can even use it as a dog treat. You can also use it on your hands after doing the dishes and avoid your skin to become dry, to make a simple homemade soap for laundry with it and to dilute the essential oils you are using on your skin. You can even go as far as making a natural bug repellent if you mix the oil with essential oil of mint, rosemary or catnip – the range of uses is truly enormous.
