107 Everyday Uses For Coconut OilImage – EverydayRoots.com

We’ve run posts on coconut oil before – but we just discovered this one over at Everyday Roots and had to share because it goes beyond. Not only is it a list of 107 uses for coconut oil, but it gives super explanations and tips for each one.

There’s some genius here and many that I would never have thought of (for example increasing the shelf life of eggs!!) One of my faves however was #50: Cracked Paw Pads. If your dog gets cracked dry paws, a little coconut oil might help. 🙂

Another one that caught my eye was as a rub for arthritis. Everyday Roots wrote that it may have some anti-inflammatory potential (not medical advice) and I found this interesting because I suffer from back pain and one thing that seems to help sometimes is massaging the immediate area with coconut oil. It’s also considered extremely good for the skin.

Coconut oil is amazing stuff – but one thing about coconut oil: There can be a big difference in quality. One of the markers to look for is smell: A good coconut oil should smell fresh and… (surprise surprise)… like coconut. I know, it sounds like stating the obvious – but once you’ve compared a few, you will see what I mean. Lower grade coconut oil has much less of a sweet coconut aroma – and if you get a chance, compare the scent of a freshly opened jar with an older one. As it gets old it can also start to smell more stale and “fatty”. Dr. Bronners (no affiliation) is my current favorite. Look out for extra virgin, cold pressed, organic.
