How do you use coconut oil?
Coconut oil has many uses for cooking, beauty and health. It is a natural product and as long as you buy organic virgin or extra virgin coconut oil you shouldn’t be exposed to any of the nasty residues from the refinement processes.
It will usually come in a jar and be solid. Just use a spoon to take a small amount for use in your kitchen or in your bathroom. Coconut oil melts at 25ᴼ so if you are using it cosmetically, just put a small amount on the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. It will quickly melt allowing you to use it as a moisturizer or hair treatment.
Start slowly and gradually increase the amount of coconut oil you use in a day to give your body the chance to enjoy all its benefits. On average, most people may use up to two tablespoons of coconut oil a day and this is recommended as a reasonable dose for optimal benefits.
