FIVE WAYS TO USE COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil has many nutritional benefits. It is packed with unique fatty acids that have profound positive effects on our health. Coconut oil can help stimulate brain function, lower cholesterol and regulate our metabolic rate amongst other things!

Coconut oil is also a super versatile ingredient: it works well in a variety of dishes and can also be used for cosmetic purposes! It really is a super food! Here are some of our favourite ways to use it…

Use as a moisturiser! (via primallyinspired.com)

Coconut oil is much more hydrating than your average store brought moisturiser. This recipe shows how to make a calming lavender lotion with just three ingredients! See the tutorial here…

Use instead of butter when baking!

Unrefined coconut oil still retains much of its nutritional value, being rich in beneficial fatty acids. This makes a suitable replacement for butter or margarine! We sell odourless coconut oil as well as regular coconut oil: this is perfect for savoury cooking where you don’t want the coconut flavour! Check out our Chocolate Raisin Brownie Biscuits!

Add to smoothies! (via rubiesandradishes.com)

Smoothies are a great way to enjoy the benefits of coconut oil! This recipe blends coconut oil, chard, mango and pineapple to make a totally tropical smoothie! See full recipe here…

Create your own homemade gifts! (via damyhealth.com)
