For the Love of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is quickly becoming the go-to health miracle in a jar. You can cook and bake with it, improve your beauty routine, and support your overall health. Its versatility is what makes it one of our grocery manager’s favorite products. “You can use it for everything,” Troy Taylor, grocery manager said.

Loaded with triglycerides (healthy fat), it is good for energy. It makes a great cooking oil. Try stir frying vegetables in coconut oil or roasting them. Here’s a simple and delicious recipe (http://kitchen.nutiva.com/coconut-oil-roasted-veggies/) for roasted veggies. For baking cookies, breads or or other treats, use coconut oil in place of butter as a tasty, vegan alternative.

Coconut oil is also body-luscious. You can use it as a hydrating mask or conditioner for your hair or simply slather it on your body as a moisturizer that’s rich in emollients. As a bonus to your health and the planet, it is chemical free. Use it in the shower for soft, glowing skin. Combine with sugar to make an exfoliating body scrub or simply use it as an inexpensive and kiss-friendly lip balm. It can even be used as shaving cream to combat razor burn, leaving your face smooth and hydrated. Try one or all of these ideas. Your body will thank you!

Since it is anti-bacterial, it can be used to improve oral health. Swish a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes each day, before brushing.
