As you most likely know, the benefits of coconut oil are plentiful and pretty impressive.

Love healthy cooking? Use coconut oil.

Have dry skin? Use coconut oil.

Need an energy boost? Use coconut oil.

While you may already be using coconut oil as a nutrient-rich cooking substitute or natural moisturizer, we’ve found five new ways to utilize this good-for-you oil:

  1. EXFOLIATE

Simply combine coconut oil with sea salt or sugar for a daily exfoliator. While the salt or sugar exfoliates the skin, the coconut oil moisturizes it. You’ll love this easy, two-ingredient scrub.

  1. PREVENT

Believe it or not, coconut oil can help prevent metal objects from rusting. Simply rub some oil on your tools, silverware or anything else that is likely to rust, let it sit for a couple of hours and wash it off.

  1. PROTECT

Coconut oil contains a natural SPF. Combined with shea butter, zinc oxide, beeswax and essentials oils, our DIY sunscreen protects your skin from the sun without the harsh chemicals.

  1. SOOTHE

Some even use coconut oil as a natural throat lozenge. Try swallowing one teaspoon up to three times daily to soothe a sore throat or a lingering cough.

  1. SHARE

Just like us, our pets can benefit from coconut oil. Mix a spoonful into your cat or dog’s dry food to support their digestion, or apply it to calm minor skin irritations.

Moral of the story: We’re pretty sure you can use coconut oil for [almost] anything.
