15 Ways I Use Coconut Oil Every Day ("going nuts over coconut oil; daily practical uses u didn't know") | Detox | Scoop.it
There are many ways to use coconut oil. Learn about 15 uses for coconut oil in this post.

15 Ways I Use Coconut Oil Every Day:

- Put it on my legs before shaving in the shower rather than using scary Shaving Cream.

- Slather it on after a shower instead of spending time making or buying expensive Body Lotion.

- Use it in place of rancid vegetable oils in Baking.

- Use it for Popping Popcorn instead of vegetable oil.

- Use it for Sauteing delicious veggies.

- Use it as a all-natural Lubricant. (Don’t worry.. it’s in a different bottle than the one for kitchen use.)

- Take it by the spoonful as Appetite Regulator

- Mix it with a little bit of baking soda to make a super easy, cheap, effective, natural Deodarant.

- Use it as the base for making Chocolate.

- Use it as a natural Gel if my hair gets fly-aways.

- Place a bit on the ends of my hair for Conditioner.

- As a replacement for Nipple Cream for us lactating mothers

- Sometimes as Baby Lotion instead of my beloved olive oil.

- As Face Lotion.

- As a quick Lip Balm.

If I were a poet I would write an ode to coconut oil. It might start something like this:

“Oh, Coconut Oil, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.”

Via Troy Mccomas (troy48)
Sandy Halliday's insight:

I agree that continuously cleasning without rebuilding can be  very dangerous unless properly supervised by a naturopathic doctor or other responsible practioner experienced in detox. All good detox programs should include a nourising phase following the detoz to rebuild healthy tissue.
