The 20 Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil and skincare

Since I purchased my original organic coconut oil from the brand Spectrum at my local Publix, I’ve been in love. Coconut oil is a miracle beauty product! I asked you guys on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook how you use coconut oil (you recommended I try extra virgin coconut oil like the Nutiva so I bought it with a gift card sent to me by, discount code below), as well as watching a lot of videos and reading blog posts on the subject. With all of the research I’ve done over the past few weeks I ended up finding 20 different beauty uses for this miracle oil.


The 20 beauty uses of extra virgin coconut oil:

  1. All over body moisturizer
  2. Face makeup remover
  3. Eye makeup remover
  4. Eyelash treatment
  5. Brow treatment
  6. Eye cream
  7. Face moisturizer
  8. Hand cream
  9. Foot cream
  10. Elbow cream
  11. Cuticle oil
  12. Sunscreen (make sure to do research first, it doesn’t completely block all UV rays)
  13. DIY deodorant
  14. Lip balm
  15. Scalp treatment
  16. Deep conditioner
  17. Hot oil hair treatment (see my DIY hot oil treatment using EVOO)
  18. Frizz serum
  19. Leave-in Conditioner
  20. DIY body scrub by combining coconut oil and brown sugar

    Are there any major differences between coconut oil and olive oil, other than the texture?

      It is mostly texture but I also think olive oil takes longer to dry and for coconut oil the smell lasts longer.

      Kindness is the best accessory,
