Uses for coconut oil:
Substitute butter in baking (1/3 cup per stick)
Hair treatment: apply generously to dry hair. After 30 minutes, shampoo twice.
Personal lubricant (NOT safe with most condoms!)
Body moisturizer (minimizes body odor!)
Homemade Deodorant: 2 parts baking soda, 3 parts coconut oil, 3 parts Shea butter, add arrow root powder until pasty
Also: I get a giant tub of virgin, organic coconut oil for $15-20 on Amazon – cheaper than drug store lotions, hair treatments, and deodorant. And I can honestly say I don’t switch to natural body care unless it works just as good or BETTER. Who said organic beauty can’t be affordable?
