5 Ways to Use Coconut Oil

How was everyone’s holiday weekend?! Rob was on his last guy’s trip before the baby arrives, and I had a relaxing long weekend in Chicago. I spent time with friends at the pool and at dinners, and also a fair amount of time just hanging out at home. It’s rare that I get a whole weekend to myself so I did exactly what I wanted to, which ended up being not all that much.

I’m so excited about today’s post because I’m sharing my very first video! I’ve been wanting to dip my toes in the video world for a while, and finally made it happen.

So, onto today’s featured film! We all know the benefits of coconut oil are endless, but did you know just how versatile it really is?! Originally, I only used coconut oil when cooking, but have since taken advantage of it’s many different uses. From beauty to cooking to health benefits, I’m sharing my top five ways to use coconut oil in today’s video!

There are so many unique coconut oil uses and I couldn’t fit them all into this video, so here are a few more that might be worth trying!

  • Naturally clears up cold sores
  • Use it as a completely natural baby lotion
  • It’s great for pets struggling with skin issues when used externally
  • It can reduce the itch of mosquito bites
  • You can use coconut oil as a hair mask for silk, moisturized hair

I really enjoyed making it and love the final product even more. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do, so let me know what you think! This is just the first of more videos to come! Subscribe to my Youtube channel to follow along if you like! Otherwise, I’ll be posting them here too 🙂
