    Great post! You know what would also be helpful? To know where it is OK to use refined coconut oil and where it should not be used. Refined Co is sooo much cheaper and it would be nice id I could use that for *some* of the many things I use the good stuff for. Does that make sense?

  2. says

    Thank you! I have been hearing more and more about coconut oil and really don’t know much about it. It seems it’s like the “vinegar” of the oil world – it can be used for just about everything! I really appreciate you laying it all out in a nice, easy-to-read post!

    I started using virgin coconut oil a few days ago to help with the terrible symptoms of Hypothyroidsm & I can feel it working already.Thanks for the great post & tips..I love the oil.

    • Anonymous says

      2yrs ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroid(under active) my doctor recommended a prescription drug and said I would see a difference in 6 weeks. I told her I would find a natural cure and made an appt. for 6 weeks later. Thanks to this site I found my all natural cure!!! I put 2-3 tablespoons in my coffee and tea everyday and slather ony body@ night. I retested 6 weeks later and did NOT have hypothyroid!! Thank you so much for posting such a wealth of knowledge!!!

  4. says

    okay may seem silly but do you use the virgin coconut oil or the expeller pressed type for all of these uses? Is the virgin coconut oil not useful for these things, cause you state it’s good for cooking & baking…

    I am so happy to hear that this post is helping all of you! I am getting some GREAT questions both here and on my Facebook page so what I am going to do is publish a post this Saturday morning which answers them all! This gives everyone another day to think of more questions plus I can always add to the post later on if needed. So stay tuned for the Coconut Oil Q&A on Saturday!

    Living in the Caribbean I use locally produced coconut oil on a regular basis and loved reading this post nodding my head at most of the various uses and learning some new ones.

    When our children have colds we rub them in coconut oil and it’s a great decongestant if they have stuffy noses.

    We also use freshly made coconut milk on a daily basis which has all the oil in it and it’s amazing – full of nutrients and life giving properties. Great share. onelove

    Cant wait for your Sat morning post. I am buying refined organic coconut oil that i use for everything am i on the right track and as I weigh over 100 kgs should I have more than 4 tbs as I have been taking it for a couple of months and my cholesterol is still high. Just wondering if I am on right track. Great info by the way

  8. CaveGirl says

    WOW, I really never realized how beneficial coconut oil is! I’m allergic to it when ingested, but I will have to try some of the topical uses, especially the scalp treatment.

  9. says

    I like to make sure I buy coconut oil that is in glass or a can. I avoid plastic as I am uncertain as to whether the plastic might migrate into the coconut oil

    When I am finished here I need to find your FB page. Sherry, Luann has a coconut oil that is in the shortening aisle….Luann makes peanut oil, canola, so I was happy to see the coconut oil…maybe for skin.

    Many great ideas! I’ll have to try it internally. In the past, I’d get a jar of it and melt it in the sun to use as a tanning oil. I can’t vouch for any SPF because I always had a very dark tan but I sure didn’t have dry skin!
    Thank you!

    I can vouch for its healing process. My 3 month old woke this morning with a pretty long fingernail scratch down the side of her face that drew blood. I applied a small amount of coco oil to it and it’s 4:30 and almost gone. Thanks for sharing

    Hi! I loved this post I am super excited to start using coconut oil in everyday life..

    I was wondering if you know of any places

    I don’t know if you buy local or a chain store. Just wondering thank you for this posting!! 😀

    Sun Burn! Did I miss seeing it? For best soothing mix with a few drops of Lavender essential oil. Rub onto pink or red sunned skin. My skin is always healed by morning. Not even a sign of too much sun!
    Your list is great, thank you. I use coconut oil for many reasons from moisturizer, wood polish, cooking, eczema and soothe sun burn.

  21. says

    I do just take spoonfuls although you can add it to smoothies, coffee, tea as well as to foods (as in individual servings of salad dressing and the like). If adding it to a hot beverage be warned…the top layer will be oily and hide how hot the beverage underneath is. There are also some great recipes for making coconut oil “candies.” Mainly, it is melting the coconut oil, adding enough cocoa powder to make it tasty, allowing it to resolidify, then dropping teaspoon to tablespoon sized amounts and parchment paper and rolling them into little balls. You keep these in the fridge and eat them throughout to day until you have taken your daily allowance.

    Love the article and all the healthy tips but personally I’ve noticed it can be a little over stimulating to the thyroid if it happens to be that way in the first place, over-active instead of under which the coconut oil is suppose to help, so does anybody know if it should be avoided in that case or just kept to a minimum?

  24. dani2013 says

    I love coconut oil, too! I have been using a 100% pure coconut oil lubricant called SemPure. It is liquid at room temperature so I don’t have to deal with heating it or spooning it out of a jar. You can buy it online at http://www.sempure.net or on Amazon. My husband and I use SemPure as a massage oil and skin moisturizing, also.

  25. Sarah says

    We use organic coconut oil for just about everything as well. It’s my ‘go to’ with everything! :) Something I was amazed to find was that it cures Pink Eye! My 2 year old son somehow got pink eye 2x in two months. I was breastfeeding my infant at the time, so I tried that but bm didn’t do the trick, so I tried Coconut oil and voila! 3 days of 3x a day and gone. Later antibiotics! :)

    Cave girl,how do you know you are alergic to it when ingested…Could be that you just tried too much too soon,you are meant to start on small doses and work your way up..Too much to start with can induce vomiting, diarrhea and general nausea.take it easy.

    I learned a lot about the health benefits of coconut oil from the book Primal Body Primal Mind I’ve also heard Dr. Michael Blaylock comment that anyone with any brain problem such as Alzheimer etc.. should be taking coconut oil every day! Dr. Blaylock is a brain surgeon.

  28. says

    I am from Asian descent and we regularly use coconut oil for everything. My Mother used to make me coconut oil by shredding the meat, hand pressing the liquids, then boil the water out. This oil tastes and smells just like the kind my Mother used to spend hours making. This is definitely worth the price for the amount of oil that you get. I use this as a hair detangler out of the shower, as make-up remover, face and body moisturizer, and lip balm.

  29. Sue says

    Coconut oil will also kill out some cancers. I had a ‘beauty mark’ that my OBGyn kept asking me questions about on the side of my breast. About 6 months to a year after using the oil instead of lotion after my shower, it just peeled off. It hasn’t come back either…

  30. says

    So versatile… 27. For breastfeeding moms, consuming 3 ½ tablespoons of coconut oil daily will enrich your milk supply.

    And it’s great as a salve to soothe flea bites on your pooch and kill the pesky suckers.

  31. Anonymous says

    question: and this may seem like a stupid question but considering how things are processed these days I have to ask. Does coconut milk have the oil in it & the same benefits as just ingesting the oil itself? If so what is the best coconut milk to look for?Thank you, Susan

  32. says

    @Anonymous Hi Susan! No, coconut milk and coconut oil are not the same thing. Although coconut milk does have some healing properties it is not even close to coconut oil in health benefits. Making your own coconut milk is the best way to go as all the store versions have added “ick” in them no matter how natural. I can email you instructions if you are interested.

    This is great! Thank You! I am very intuitive and for over a year now I have been hearing Coconut! I have started to use it for somethings. This really helps to expand my use!

    I have always used coconut oil (for the past many years) in place of butter in many recipes… I spread it on bread when I make grilled cheese sandwiches. I actually preferred the unrefined, coconutty flavor.

    My stepmom recently turned 62 but has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia so I purchased some for her and plan on start using it. Mine is solid, so I have to warm it up to make it a liquid…

    I am wondering if it would be ok to ozonate it. I ozonate olive oil and put essential oils of lavender and lemongrass in it and use it as my daily face moisturizer. I would love to try this with coconut oil as wellll any thoughts?

    And I would love more instruction as to use it in smoothies… do you just plop a few tablespoons in along with your kefir (I am using a lot of kefir these days, make my own), and fruit and ice? I will have to try that.

    Thank you for this information… I am going to use this list, especially for my mom.

    @Hybrid Rasta Mama Thank you Rasta mama for letting me know the milk alone doesn’t cut it. I have both the virgin oil & use the milk but just wondered if the milk was enough. I’ll continue using both.Thank you! :) Susan

  37. says

    @Rebecca Hi Rebecca! I see no reason why you could not ozonate coconut oil. I do the same with olive oil and have never even thought about doing it with coconut oil. I think I will try it tomorrow!

    I add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to my smoothies. Typically I make a 12-16 ounce smoothie. You might only use 1 tablespoon in a 8-10 ounce smoothie. It blends right in nicely!

    I am so sorry to hear about your mother. 62 is so very young for dementia. Have you looked into other natural support for her? You might try:

    I’ve used Coconut oil on a burn(from a hot pan) I applied it right away and was surprised at how fast the pain was gone. I reapplied it often. It never blistered or hurt when I showered. Within a week, the burn was healed. Coconut oil also worked wonderful on my sunburn. It greatly reduced the pain.

    I have used coconut oil to relieve the itch and swelling of hives. I have dermal allergies and will sometimes randomly break out in hives on the palms and back of my hands. Coconut oil not only took the itch away, but it kept it from coming back as well.

    I love coconut oil. My husband’s cousin introduced it to me last year when I was having stomach problems. A year later my stomach issues are gone. My skin looks great. I use it in my oatmeal and when I bake my food. I use it on my skin and hair works amazing. I did a lot of research on it before using it and it’s amazing all the ways it can help people.

  47. ASLI says

    Hi, How can I use coconut oil for psoriasis? It is on my foot. Drinking it or rubbing on it ?? Please help… Thanks !!

  48. says

    @Anonymous Typically I mix 3 tablespoons of arrowroot powder with 3 tablespoons of baking soda then add in enough melted coconut oil to make a paste. I have never really measured how much coconut oil but my guess is about 1/2 cup. It will harden up if kept at room temperature so I always keep a small bowl handy, fill it with warm water, set my glass jar with the deodarant in it for about a minute, then take a pea sized amount and put it on.

  49. says

    @ASLI BOTH! Take coconut oil by the spoonful daily. It will work from the inside out. I would also use it directly on your skin as often as possible.

    Coconut oil will solidify at temperatures below 75 degrees so that is why it looks like a white cream. To soften it, place the coconut oil jar in a bowl filled with hot water. It will melt quickly and resolidify rather quickly as well.

  50. Nemina Angel says

    @Mel
    Doesn’t ‘refined’ generally mean stripped of all beneficial components? I’d go for Virgin oil every time! =) Good luck!

    @Anonymous Here are some links for you to review about coconut oil and diabetes. I have a diabetic dog and I can say from experience that coconut oil does help regulate his blood sugar better than insulin alone.

    @Anonymous Hi Christine! Yes, you can use it for pink eye with great success. Here is a link to an article with some basic information. http://www.livestrong.com/article/412363-coconut-oil-for-pink-eye/

    I have not personally had to use it for pink eye but I do know a few mothers who have used it on their children with great success. Basically just take a cotton ball, soak it in coconut oil and place over the eye three times a day. Pink eye clears up within a day or two!

    I didn’t see it mentioned anywhere, but my favorite use for coconut oil is to make coconut oil popcorn. By the way I thought your post is really great. I have a post on how to make organic virgin coconut oil using your own blender. You can link out to it if you want. http://coconutoilessentials.com. PS, where do you buy your 5 gallon drums? We usually use 1 to 2 gallons per month, and I could probably save money by buying a 5 gallon drum.

    1. Coconut oil is one of the reasons why Indian women have great hair. Massage warm coconut oil into the scalp, leave it for an hour and then shampoo your hair and feel the difference.

    2. If you have cracked heels, apply a little coconut oil on them before you sleep, wear socks and you’ll have baby soft feet in a week.

I am a natural, health freak and currently use essential oils for rememdies and I will start using coconut oil more now, thanks to this amazing post! :)

    @Tori I see no reason why a lotion warmer would kill the healthy properties since the heat point of coconut oil is so high. Coconut oil can be used in very high heat cooking and long term heat in warm climates would be comparable to a lotion warmer. My coconut oil is pretty much in a liquid state 5 months per year due to warm temperatures. I say go for it!

    Does injesting the daily dose of coconut oil contribute to the amount of fat in your diet? I mean, should you cut back on intake of other oils or fats in order to take your daily dose of coconut oil? I’m a little confused and just trying to understand. All I can picture is you taking a tablespoon and dishing in to a Crisco like substance and eating it. See what I mean. Straighten me out, would you please?

  62. says

    @Anonymous I suggest you visit my blog post on fats. It will help you to understand this better.

    http://hybridrastamama.com/2011/02/part-2-lets-talk-about-fats-baby.html

    In short, coconut oil can be taken as a supplement which means it is taken in addition to the fats you already consume (butter, lard, etc). Because of all of it’s health benefits, it is so much more than “just a fat.” So yes, it does contribute to the amount of fat in your diet but in a different way. So please read the post above and let me know if you have more questions. Happy to help!

    Wow, what a plethera of good information.

    I must agree with the commenters who say it works for sunburn because it DOES work SO FAST! Even a bad burn all over my son’s back – the CO immediately removed the sting, and with a second application that evening, the burn was gone the next morning. Not only does it heal the burn, it prevents the peeling afterward!

      I’m sure that is your opinion being that you only get paid by promoting pharmaceuticals, and natural cures have no benefit to helping you pay for your beach house! Doctor’s operate from a instruction manual these days and are pressured to produce, like sales people. How many pharma products do you prescribe to people, who never benefit from them and they never get well? There are tons of testimonials about natural herbs and coconut oil that has helped people when their doctors failed them because they were clueless.

    I am a 65 yr old grandma and have had a problem for about 10 years with what I can best describe as a “diaper rash of the chest” – as I am not flat.. Sometimes it would get so bad that it would weep and bleed and oh my, did it itch. I tried everything to help it. I found an antifungal powder which helped some, but it said on the container to only use it for 3 weeks and I had used it for at least 7 years. Finally I mixed a couple of teaspoons of fractionated coconut oil with a few drops of Melaluca essential oil and applied it liberally after showering. It cleared up immediately! You only need a tiny bit, the mixture lasted a couple of weeks. I only use it now about every three days and it stays away. This is wonderful!

    It’s best to really go organic. Here in our country, we have several uses for VCO. Some people even take a tablespoon a day to boost their energy or something. It can be used for massage, hair, moisturizing lotion. It truly is a wonder. Even chiropractic treatments utilize them because it really helps in soothing the body and the mind.

    I started using CO today. I have bald spots after going thro early menopause triggered after completing chemotherapy in 2006. My hair was growing ok for 5yrs…..but then I noticed my hair thinning to my crown and right temple. I purchased my CO from as asian store (United Kingdom). The owner said that asian ladies apply it to their hair to condition snd promote healthy growth…..that the asian ladies apply ut daily and leave it in their hair until their next hair was…..which I plan to do.

    Found this on Facebook:
    Mix equal parts of Coconut oil + apple cider vinegar to treat head lice.
    Coconut oil dissolves the lice’s outer skeletal shell instantly. So once you put it on someone’s head you can have them shower and rinse it off right away and all the lice will be killed and gone! Plus there are no chemicals!
