How to Use Coconut Oil

Coconut is the most versatile of all oils.  It can be used both on and in our bodies.  It can be eaten, drank, gargled, moisturised with; it can clean, shine, protect, repel; it can bake, fry, grill, bbq, stirfry and be used raw.

If it is your first time buying coconut oil do NOT put it in the cupboard to use 'one day'. Commit to your body and your health, open that jar, and put a teaspoon of the beautiful oil straight into your mouth! 

Coconut oil can be used both internally and externally. It is an excellent source of energy and when ingested as a food oil or health tonic it ads both flavour and therapeutic benefits.

Use it for: EVERYTHING!

  1. As a health drink tonic you can mix it into your smoothies, juices, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, even just warm water
  2. Use it for cooking as it is so stable that when heated it will not oxidise or go rancid.    
  3. Eat it straight off the spoon, it is smooth, creamy and delicious.
  4. Use it as a spread on toast, breads, and an overall replacement for butters.    
  5. It is vegan and also an excellent choice for raw food recipes.    
  6. Coconut oil can be substituted 1:1 when used for baking dishes such as breads, muffins, cakes and so on. 
  7. Blend it into a salad as a dressing.
  8. Use it as a skin and hair moisturiser, deodorant,
  9. Use it as an eye make up remover, shaving lotion, sunscreen.

  11. Use it as a massage oil

  13. Do a hair treatment with it once every couple weeks
  14. Basically, think of anything and you can probably use coconut oil for it in some way!

 

Oil Pulling

Oil Pulling is a very simple and effective way to detox your body that also cleans and strengthens your teeth and gums. It is an age old ancient Ayurvedic healing tradition that has been around for hundreds of years.

The process is most effective when done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. You simply put a tablespoon of coconut oil inside your mouth and swish (gently, not vigorously) it around for 15-20 minutes and then spit it out and rinse or wash your mouth and teeth clean.

The oil acts to ‘pull’ toxins, pus and mucus from inside your body’s cells, blood and gut. The antibacterial properties of coconut oil can help with clearing gum disease and tooth infection.
