human mind approximately three
weeks, sometimes less and other times
more depending on the importance or
weight of the habit to you. We are
what we repeatedly do. Being healthy
does not depend on isolated actions but
habits.
For instance, it could take you less than
a week to incorporate more water into
your daily diet, but it could require more
than a year to do away with tobacco
use for good.
Some habits may have to be
strengthened more than once such as
returning to your daily exercise routine

COCONUT OIL IN THE KITCHEN

1. Replace Cooking Oils with Coconut Oil: Great for baking, sauting, or
in stir-fry, use coconut oil in place of other cooking oils! This saturated fat
has been shown to reduce cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health.
It can be heated to higher temperatures before it begins to break down or
smoke (around 450 degrees) a bonus for those of us who are not so
domestically inclined. Check out our simple guide below on several heart
healthy oils in addition to coconut oil that will nourish you from the inside
out.

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

2. Superior Nutrient Absorption: Your body loves the medium chain fatty
acids (MCFAs) found in coconut oil. These MCFAs that will help you
absorb all the good stuff like lutein (for your eyes), beta-carotene, and
vitamin E, which all need to be eaten with fat to be absorbed properly.
Coconut oil has been shown to improve your absorption of vitamins,
minerals, and enzymes meaning it does you twice as much good!
3. Create a Morning Burst of Energy: By stirring in two teaspoons of
easily digested coconut oil into your hot coffee or tea, essential fatty acids
are sent straight to your liver where its converted into energy that you can
use right now. It is also a delicious addition to your morning beverage!
4. Improve Insulin Sensitivity and Stop Midday Sweet Cravings: Enjoy a
spoonful sprinkled with cinnamon or raw cacao powder as a mid-afternoon
treat. Coconut oil can regulate blood sugar levels and control cravings for
sugar and carbohydrates. A 2010 study in the Indian Journal of
Pharmacology found that the type of fatty acid found in coconut oil known
as lauric acid may protect against diabetes-induced dyslipidemia (an
abnormal amount of fat in the blood).
5. Get Rid of Polyunsaturated Fats In Your Diet: Use coconut oil on toast,
to saut vegetables, or to sear meats for a healthier cooking option and as
an alternative to polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower,
sunflower, canola, soybean, and corn oil...all of which have been shown to
directly increase the onset of diabetes and heart disease.
6. Pop Popcorn: The butter flavoring found in most microwave popcorn
contains a chemical known as diacetyl, which is a known poison. This
chemical, along with nearly 48 other chemicals, including ink and glue, are
activated when microwave popcorn is popped.
Instead of using your microwave, try using a heavy bottomed deep pot.
Just add one to two tablespoons of coconut oil and one single popcorn
kernel on your stovetop on medium heat. Once the kernel pops, you have
the perfect temperature to pop your popcorn. Carefully add the remaining
3 tablespoons (40 grams) of popcorn kernels and pop away! Shake the
pot around and leave the lid off slightly so steam can escape. Your
popcorn should be ready in 3 to 5 minutes. When the popping slows
down, empty the pan into a bowl. Sprinkle with Himalayan pink salt or sea
salt and enjoy! Makes 7 cups popped, serves two.
7. Create an Easy and Amazing Salad Dressing: Most store bought salad
dressing is filled with preservatives and chemicals you do not want in your
body. They are made with soybean or vegetable oils that have been proven
in medical studies to lead to various cancers, obesity, and other health
7

issues.

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

Make it at home with coconut oil and your salad dressing will be packed
heart healthy essential fatty acids. Not to mention, it also tastes incredible
and is a great addition to tuna salad, chicken salad, and cold pastas.
Drop the Lime in the Coconut Salad Dressing:
cup of virgin coconut oil
2 to 3 tablespoons lime juice
1 clove finely chopped garlic
tablespoon dried chopped onions or fresh
tablespoon honey (optional)
teaspoon sea salt
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
teaspoon dried thyme
Add all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together briskly (this will help
the coconut oil to liquefy as it is mixed with the ingredients).Or put all
ingredients in a small jar, cover tightly, and shake well.
8. Boost Metabolism with a French Roasted Vegetable Treat: Coconut
oil helps increase your metabolism by converting the fat it contains into
energy, which, in turn, helps your body burn more calories. The fats in
coconut oil are quickly metabolized by the liver, which can increase your
metabolic rate by up to 15%. Try our easy French roasted veggie treat; it
will help you burn calories with the bonus of adding a dose of fiber to your
diet. The combination of bell peppers and radishes when roasted give a
sweet, nutty, and rich flavor when cooked with coconut oil.
French Roasted Veggies:
1 red bell pepper (cut into 1 inch strips)
1 yellow bell pepper (cut into 1 inch strips)
1 bunch red radishes (washed, stems removed and cut in halves)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence seasoning (if you dont have this
seasoning then feel free to mix dried oregano, basil, and thyme in equal
parts and sprinkle over veggies for an Italian version.)
Sea salt and crushed red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or
foil. Melt coconut oil and mix with veggies arrange in a single layer on
cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Herbes de Provence or Italian Seasoning
(Add salt after baking, as adding salt before you cook the veggies will stop
them from developing caramelization, which is that deep brown
deliciousness that you want.)
8

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil


Bake for 40 minutes or until caramelized. Remove sprinkle with salt &
pepper, enjoy hot, warm, or cooled! Serves two.

9. Stop Food Cravings: If you are on a low fat diet, you may often find
yourself hungry because the low fat content of the food youre eating
makes you crave sugar. It can also increase depression and impair
vitamin absorption, a combination that spells disaster. When battling the
bulge, remember - fat is your friend! Refined grains, on the other hand,
are not, as carbohydrates can increase your appetite.
By eating two spoonfuls of coconut oil per day, you can reduce sugar and
carb cravings and increase satiety, which means youll stay feeling full
without needing to eat as often. This will lead to a trimmer, healthier you,
all while feeding your body with antioxidants and quality fatty acids.
Coconut oil does this by sending medium chain fatty acids to your liver to
use as energy. This gives you an instant source of energy, much like
sugar except it doesnt cause your insulin levels to spike.
10. Homemade Cold & Flu Remedy: Power up your immune system with
coconut oils antibacterial, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral,
and anti-retroviral properties help your body defend against disease and
infections.
Coconut Oil Cold & Flu Syrup
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons raw Manuka honey*
Juice of one lemon
1 crushed finely chopped fresh garlic clove
Combine all ingredients until well mixed. Dont heat the honey, as it will
destroy beneficial enzymes. Take 1 tablespoon 3 to 5 times daily at the
first sign of cold, flu symptoms, or cough. Make fresh each day.
Studies have shown that coconut oil may increase your bodys ability to
fight off invading viruses such as influenza, herpes, Hepatitis C, and even
HIV.
Yes, you read that right...the possible benefits of adding coconut oil to
your life are that good.
*Manuka honey contains additional antibacterial properties and a greater
ability to produce hydrogen peroxide to fight bacteria. When purchasing
9

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

Manuka honey, remember these three things:

Look for a 10+ or higher rating


Make sure it says active or bio-active on the label
o Always look for the UMF trademark which is owned by the Unique Manuka
Factor Honey Association (UMFHA)
o
o

Dont worry if you cant get Manuka honey, you can use raw organic
unpasteurized pure honey which works just as well.
11. Protect Your Brain: Prevent neurological diseases with coconut oil!
Coconut oil contains 65% medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). The MCTs
along with ketone bodies in coconut oil have shown promise in treating
and even reversing the effects of diseases such as Alzheimers, diabetes,
Parkinsons, Huntingtons, ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease), and drug-resistant
epilepsy.
The ketone bodies in coconut oil provide fuel for the brain. Your
body will use coconut oil ketones before glucose when it is available
stopping the brain starvation that has resulted in some of the worst
neurodegenerative diseases discovered in the last fifty years.
When these ketone bodies are metabolized, blood flow to the brain
increases, bringing more oxygen with it. This will keep your brain sharp
and going strong for many years to come!
Enjoy this delicious meal to boost your brainpower:
Smart Red & Green Salmon
2 6 ounce wild salmon fillets
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 handful roasted pumpkin seeds
cup chopped shallots
1 finely chopped garlic clove
cup dry white wine
cup finely minced scallions
cup minced parsley
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Sea salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Place salmon fillets in a glass or ceramic (non-reactive) roasting pan.

10

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

Whisk 1 tablespoon coconut oil, half of the white wine, lemon juice, salt,
and pepper together in a small bowl. Pour over salmon fillets.
Then sprinkle scallions and parsley over salmon and let stand for 10
minutes..
Roast the salmon for 10 to 12 minutes. Cover with foil and let rest for 10
minutes.
In a saucepan over medium heat, saut garlic and shallots in 1 tablespoon
of coconut oil. Toss in broccoli and tomatoes and add in pumpkin seeds,
along with the remaining white wine. Let this cook uncovered for 3 to 5
minutes until broccoli is bright green. Remove from heat and plate with
salmon. Serves two.

12. Balance Your Gut Flora: Your gut contains 10 times more bacteria than
all the human cells in the entire body. Your gut flora protects you from
infection, regulates your metabolism, and gives you more than 70% of
your immune system.
The antiviral and antibacterial properties of coconut oil work synergistically
with your gastrointestinal tract to help to control the bad flora and
optimize your gut health in general. If your gut health is out of its natural
balance, it can create a breeding ground for depression, autoimmune
conditions, and add to obesity and diabetes.
Coconut oil helps treat intestinal pathogens (even parasites) that can
affect the delicate balance of gut florainclude a high quality probiotic
daily, and fermented foods in your diet and your gut will thank you!
If you have an upset stomach, try this delicious smoothie.

cup strawberries (frozen or fresh)
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 cup full fat coconut milk
One handful ice
Add all ingredients to blender, blend well, and enjoy. Serves one.

Plants are remarkable in their ability to block bad bacterial functions.


Extracts of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, ginger, strawberry, thyme, oregano,
rosemary, turmeric, kale, and basil have been found to contain phytochemical
quorum-sensing inhibitors (QSIs) that act as an antimicrobial that inhibits
pathogenic bacteria.

LETS GET PERSONAL WITH COCONUT OIL


1. All Over Body Lotion: Use Coconut Oil as a basic lotion for your skin. A
little goes a long way, and your skin will drink it up greedily without leaving
you feeling greasy.
Coconut oil is perfect for the winter months when skin becomes dry and
cracked. If you live in a northern climate, cover your body in coconut oil
after a shower. By the next morning, your skin will feel incredibly soft and
smooth without the greasy feeling sometimes left behind when you use
lotions or other oils. Its safe to use from head to toe and your skin will
drink it up!
2. Skin Balancing Facial Cleanser: Coconut oil can be used as a facial
cleanser because it is the closest oil to those found naturally in your skin.
It will clean, disinfect without toxic chemicals, and stimulate new skin
growth, leading to a vibrant new you. Its antibacterial properties also help
fight acne and other skin conditions.
3. Get Rid of Acne Scars: Simply apply a very thin layer of coconut oil to
clean skin to treat the affected areas 2-3x a day.
You will see a little goes a long way! It may look a bit greasy at first, but
give your skin a chance to absorb the oil. Try it on a small section of the
affected skin first, to see your reaction, and then proceed from there.
Remember to continue to eat virgin coconut oil daily as well for the
most effective treatment.
Start out slow with 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil spread out
throughout the day. Break it up take a little with breakfast, lunch, and
dinner.
Once your body gets use to the oil, maybe after a week or so, you can
raise the dose to 2 tablespoons. Eventually you can increase to 3
tablespoons, spread out throughout the day.
Depending on the existing toxic load built up in your body you may
experience a breakout when you first try coconut oil. Dont be
13

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

discouraged. It just takes time to get those nasty toxins out of your body.
The more you have the longer it may take.
4. Treat Hypothyroidism: Soy based oils have been found to have a
negative effect on thyroid function. When you increase the amount of
coconut oil you either consume or massage into your skin, these medium
chain fatty acids help increase basal body temperatures. This is
extremely important for women with low thyroid function.
5. Heal Instead of Conceal: Do you have dark circles and bags under your
eyes? Dab coconut oil around your eyes every night before bed to
invigorate the delicate skin in this area, and youll wake up to a more
youthful appearance after just a few uses.
The skin around the eyes is very sensitive and is damaged easily from
harsh cleansing (and the motions used), sun, and pollution.
Coconut oil naturally revitalizes your skin at the cellular level for a fraction
of the cost of those expensive over-the-counter products filled with
chemicals...that usually only have temporary results.
6. Makeup Remover: Instead of using harsh chemical-based products that
strip your skin along with your makeup, try coconut oil! Simply cover a
cotton ball with coconut oil and wipe over your face with gentle motions.
Not only will you be amazed at how well it works, you are moisturizing
your skin at the same time. Feeding your skin instead of stripping it and
leaving it fragile and dry.
7. Natural Lip Gloss: Heal your lips naturally without the chemicals and
harsh ingredients found in most store-bought lip balms. Keep a small
amount of coconut oil with you to dab on your lips regularly.
Natural, delicious, and no greasy film. Bonus! Your significant other gets
an application after kissing!
8. Safer Tanning Choice: Use coconut oil instead of over-the-counter
tanning products to protect your skin and retain moisture. Coconut oil
minimizes your risk of burn and deeply hydrates your skin to prevent
peeling. It is naturally rated as SPF 4 sunscreen and has been shown to
safely increase skin tolerance to the sun.
Pacific islanders and other indigenous cultures have used coconut oil for
thousands of years to protect their skin.

14

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

Sunshine is great for elevating your mood and stimulating your body to
naturally produce Vitamin D, but be careful not to overdo it. Nobody likes
a burn! Coconut oil doesnt block your absorption of Vitamin D the way
many products with high chemical contents do, it smells wonderful, and
will help you get that sun exposure in a safer manner.
9. Skin Revitalizing Body Scrub: Some of the most popular scrubs can
cost a fortune and contain additives that you wouldnt normally want
anywhere near your skin.
Mix three parts unrefined sugar or sea salt to one part coconut oil, scrub
well, and you wont believe how rejuvenated your entire body will feel. If
you enjoy specific scents simply add a few drops of your favorite
essential oil. Youll get deep cleansing, exfoliation, and intense
moisturizing all in one.
10. Anti-Aging Moisturizer: Coconut oil is absorbed into your skin without
clogging your pores and it protects you from the effects of acne, eczema,
and psoriasis.
Wrinkles, varicose veins, and age spots (also known as liver spots) are no
fun and can make you look and feel older than you are. Coconut oil can
reduce the signs of aging when rubbed daily over your problem areas.
It has been proven to strengthen the elastic tissues beneath the skin that
appear to sag as we age.
11. Deep Conditioner for Your Hair: If your hair tends to be dry or prone to
split ends, coconut oil is going to be your new best friend!
If you have damaged hair or your scalp tends to be dry, flaky, and itchy,
coconut oil can also be used to deep condition your hair and scalp.
Simply apply to the scalp and massage through to the ends until
thoroughly coated, cover with a shower cap, and leave on overnight. The
next day, wash and style as usual. You will not believe the healthy glow of
your hair.
It works for all hair types even chemically treated without the harsh
chemicals found in dandruff shampoos and deep conditioning treatments!
12. Leave-In Conditioner: If you have curly hair that tends to frizz or have
problems with fly-aways, consider using coconut oil as a leave-in
conditioner after every shower.
Rub a small amount between your palms and apply first to the ends, then
massage the remainder closer to your scalp (avoid applying too much to
15

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

the top of the head where oils accumulate more quickly).

Coconut oil smells good, isnt greasy, and is 100% natural. Your hair will
drink it up and youll see the benefits after just a few uses!
13. Dandruff Control: The two primary causes of dandruff are excess oil and
dryness of the scalp. Coconut oil naturally treats both conditions by
balancing the oils in your skin. Over-the-counter dandruff treatments have
harsh chemicals (including tar yes, tar, as in what is used on roofs and
roads) that absorb into your skin.
14. Treat Baldness Naturally: If your hair is thinning, apply coconut oil to the
affected areas to boost cell repair and rejuvenation. Unlike over-thecounter chemical products for baldness, your body can process coconut
oil easily and absorb the nutrients completely, without the side effects the
chemical products can cause. In addition, its safe to use several times a
day your scalp will drink it up without leaving a greasy film behind!
15. Before or After-Shave Soother: If your skin gets irritated from shaving,
applying a dab of coconut oil before you shave or coating the area with a
thin layer of coconut oil after you shave could be the answer. It helps
soothe inflammation and irritation, prevents razor burn, and nourishes the
fresh skin exposed during the shaving process.
16. Improve Nail Health: Your cuticles and nails will love the moisture
provided by coconut oil. The antioxidants in coconut oil boost nail growth
and keep your hands looking younger and healthier.
If you suffer from athletes foot or nail fungus, cover your feet in coconut
oil and put on socks overnight. The natural anti-fungal properties kill
infection and stimulate cell regeneration.

16

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

17. Soothe and Heal Wounds:


The qualities of coconut oil
give it natural healing
properties. Scrapes, bug
bites, scars, and even a
nasty sunburn will heal
faster with regular
applications of coconut oil.
Bruises fade more quickly
because coconut oil assists
in the reabsorption of
displaced blood. In addition,
minor burns heal without
scarring if coconut oil is
applied immediately to the
affected area as it reduces
the redness and
inflammation.

He who takes medicine


and neglects to diet
wastes the skill of his
doctors.
~ Chinese Proverb

Coconut oil doesnt burn or irritate and because it is completely organic


and non-toxic, you can use it topically as much as you want without
dangerous side effects you find with over-the-counter burn creams and
scar treatments.
Especially effective after dermatology sessions to remove warts, moles,
and birthmarks, coconut oil is gentle enough to use several times a day to
reduce scarring.
18. Safe Tattoo Treatment: Tender from your new tattoo? Most tattoo
artists cover your tattoo with diaper-rash creams, which let the skin
breathe while healing, and suggest using various ointments during the
healing process. Sidenote: If a tattoo artist recommends petroleum
based productsrun!
Those chemical-laden products are absorbed directly into your
bloodstream through tiny, needle-sized, open wounds!
Ditch the chemicals and use coconut instead! A little of this natural
miracle will soothe your skin safely and prevent infection without
damaging your ink.
19. Green Toothpaste: Most commercial toothpaste formulations contain
fluoride, which is considered a poison. Fluoride can cause discoloration or
corrosion of teeth, thyroid damage, and possibly weaken bones. A little
coconut oil mixed with baking soda will give you fresh breath, healthy
17

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

gums, and a beautiful smile, while costing far less than store bought
toothpaste. Adding several drop of rosemary, grapefruit, or mint extract to
your toothpaste mixture will leave your breath feeling fresh for hours.
Coconut oil helps your body more efficiently absorb calcium and
magnesium...two minerals that promote teeth and bone wellness!
20. Oil Pulling: Go a little further to protect your oral health by using an
ancient oil pulling technique with coconut oil! Coconut oil works much
the same as oil in your car, removing plaque, mucus, and bacteria through
the soft tissues of your mouth much the way oil works in a car engine.
You can remove a large amount of bacteria and plaque in your mouth by
trying this daily oil pulling technique using coconut oil. Give it a try
it is super simple, and very effective.
1. Put about a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth (you may have
to chew on the oil for a few seconds for it to melt)
2. Swish the oil in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes (dont swallow
it! The used oil will be full of toxins)
3. Spit the oil out and brush your teeth.
Quick tip: To save time, try doing it in the shower in the morning on an
empty stomach. We recommend spitting out the oil in a trash can, as you
could clog your pipes if you spit the oil down the drain.

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

21. Natural Deodorant: There has been a lot in the news over the last few
years about the dangers of commercial over-the-counter deodorants. In
fact, the chemicals used in many available products are now being linked
to an increased risk of breast cancer in women.
Mixing a small about of coconut oil with baking soda and smoothing over
areas where you would normally use deodorant works wonders at
controlling sweat and body odor without the possible side effects!
Coconut oil can also be used by itself.
22. Lubrication That Covers All the Bases: If youre feeling cozy with your
partner, coconut oil is an excellent natural lubricant. It provides a gentle
and safe alternative that will win you over from the first use!
Also, unlike expensive over-the-counter products, it wont disturb the
natural chemical balance of the vagina (which can lead to yeast infections)
or leave you feeling greasy afterward.
A couple words of caution: coconut oil is not compatible with latex! If
condoms are your birth control method of choice, coconut oil isnt the right
lubricant for you. Also, coconut oil is not compatible with most adult toys
for the same reasonit releases the toxins in the plastic and
disintegrates them while youre using themnot exactly what you want
inside of you!
23. Massage Oil: If youre just in the mood to cuddle, coconut oil can be
used as an incredible massage oil that is safe for use all over your body.
Its also naturally edible with a mild flavor you wont want to spit out if you
get it in your mouth.
It is excellent for sore muscles due to the natural anti-inflammatory
properties, and as a bonus: you are deep conditioning the skin as you
massage your partner!

SAFE ALTERNATIVES FOR MOTHER AND


CHILD!
1. Baby Your Babys Sensitive Skin: Parents of a new baby know that
diaper rash can be a painful problem. Coconut oil protects your babys
skin without the use of any chemicals.
Diaper rash creams contain many chemicals that are applied directly to
your babys skin and absorbed into the blood stream quickly. Coconut oil
is 100% non-toxic and safe for your babys entire body.
2. Treatment for Babys Cradle Cap: Giving the appearance of a bad case
of dandruff on a babys head, Cradle Cap is another issue parents of
newborns often face. After spending nine months in the liquid
environment of the womb, the outside world can be dry and unforgiving.
Instead of baby lotion rub a teaspoon of coconut oil each day on scalp to
give baby chemical-free comfort that provides incredible antioxidants from
day one.
3. Wound Treatment for Baby: Applying coconut oil to the healing
umbilical cord will speed healing and prevent infection. If your baby is
circumcised, applying a bit of coconut oil to the wound is a safe
alternative.
4. Nipple Cream that is Safe for Baby: Breastfeeding mothers might want
to consider setting aside the Vitamin E ointment. Coconut oil and vitamin
E capsules are more effective at moisturizing tender nipples that can
chafe, crack, and become painful when women breastfeed.
It can be applied repeatedly without losing effectiveness or applying harsh
chemicals for both your body and your baby to absorb as with over-thecounter products. You can even leave a coconut oil-dampened cotton
square against your nipples between feedings for added relief!
Youll be worry-free with the knowledge that your baby is nursing safely.
Ingesting coconut oil is non-toxic even for newborns! As an added bonus,
they are getting the same antioxidant benefits as mom!

20

5. Treat Thrush Organically: Apply coconut oil to the nipple and nurse as
usual. The anti-fungal and anti-bacterial elements of coconut oil will treat
thrush (yeast) safely and effectively. Repeat at each feeding.
6. Enrich Milk Supply: Consider adding three tablespoons of coconut oil to
your daily diet as a way to enrich your milk supply. The easiest and most
delicious way is in an antioxidant-rich smoothie.
Coconut oil offers multiple benefits for new moms. It provides a healthy
dose of lauric acid that boosts the supply of monolaurin naturally found in
breast milk. This natural antiviral helps protects newborns immune
system.
In addition, it boosts energy, and studies have found that coconut oil is a
great way to help you return to pre-pregnancy weight, as it increases your
metabolism and can help you lose weight faster.
A happy mom is good for everyone. Your baby will thank you!
7. Reduce Stretch Marks: Reduce the redness and depth of stretch marks
with daily applications of coconut oil. Though they will never disappear
completely, youll love the effect coconut oil has on your battle scars
from bringing your baby safely into the world!
Safe to use throughout your pregnancy (and comforting as well).
8. Avoid Vaginal Dryness: Coconut oil is a safe and natural conditioner for
the most sensitive skin of a womans body. It lubricates the body gently
without disrupting the natural balance in the vagina.
To avoid the risk of an episiotomy (deliberate snipping of the perineum
during delivery that then has to be stitched closed, a procedure that is
often necessary but increases discomfort after delivery), rub a small
amount of coconut oil around this area daily for a few weeks leading up to
labor.
9. Nausea Relief: Some expectant mothers swear by applying a tiny dab of
coconut oil to the inner wrist to help with morning sickness. This solution
may not work for everyone, but its an inexpensive, 100% natural option to
try.
For those who suffer excessive morning sickness throughout their
pregnancy, coconut oil helps to combat the symptoms of malnutrition by
boosting the effectiveness and absorption of your prenatal vitamin.

10. Indigestion Relief: Taken after a meal,


a teaspoon of coconut oil can help lessen the
heartburn symptoms that are so often
prevalent in pregnant women. Much better
for you than over-the-counter antacids!
11. Fight Constipation and Gas Naturally:
Immediately after delivery, the first bowel
movement can inspire swear words you
didnt even know you knew. Daily doses of
coconut oil can help to prevent constipation
and bloating caused by gas.

12. Peri Spray: Having a baby takes a lot out of your body. Your hospital or
midwife should send you home with a peri bottle (a squirt bottle that you
can use to squirt warm water on the perineum during and after urinating).
Try this blend to help soothe any stinging: Mix equal parts warm water,
witch hazel, and liquefied (melted) coconut oil in peri bottle, screw cap on,
and shake well. Use as instructed. The natural antiviral and antiinflammatory compounds in coconut oil will help prevent infection and
reduce swelling
13. Natural Stress Relief: Having a new baby is a joyful experience, but it
definitely comes with its share of stress. Sleepless nights, being run down
from the pregnancy itself, and being on duty 24 hours a day can take its
toll.
While your little one is napping, dab a small amount of coconut oil on your
temples and massage gently. The motion, the pause in the hustle and
bustle, and the soothing aroma of coconut will have you centered and
ready to take on the world again in no time!
14. Pregnancy Brain: Some say its a myth, while others swear theyve
actually lost brain cells during the course of their pregnancy. Either way,
coconut oil helps to enhance your mental clarity because your brain
absolutely loves the fuel it provides which is also good for men and
women who are not expecting.
15. Lice Removal Treatment: If youre a parent, youve likely received a
letter at some point that someone at your childs school has been found to
have lice.
This normally means a trip to the store for a foul-smelling chemical
shampoo that you then forcibly apply to your unhappy childs head. These
22

75 Ways to Revitalize Your Body With Coconut Oil

products are dangerous and have caused intense reactions during use for
decades including asthmatic symptoms and skin irritation. Worse, they
arent very effective so all the effort and risk could be for nothing!
Instead, saturate your childs hair with coconut oil then cover it with a
shower cap. An hour later, rinse with apple cider vinegar and comb
through with an ultra-fine comb. No more lice and their hair will feel
deeply conditioned and clean!
16. Ear Infection Treatment: Many moms swear by coconut oil as a
treatment for this common childhood illness! As a natural antibacterial, it
works to kill the germs gently and safely. Simply add a couple of drops to
the ear canal.
Warning: Never use the microwave to heat coconut oil that you plan to use
on any part of your skin! Consider buying a small bottle in the travel
supply section of your local store, or use something the size of a shot
glass to separate small amounts of coconut oil for specific purposes such
as this. When needed, place the desired amount in the small container,
then place the container in a glass of warm water and wait a few minutes
for the oil to warm.
17. No More Gum: When your poor child comes home from school with gum
stuck in his or her hair (and it happens more often than seems possible),
dont worry!
Saturate the area with coconut oil and leave on for about half an hour. A
rolling motion of the gum between your fingers should work it loose
without the pain of a comb, the horror of scissors, or the mess of peanut
butter.
18. Gestational Diabetes Protection: Hormone fluctuations alter blood
sugar levels in women who are pregnant, but for approximately 4% of
those women, this condition worsens into gestational diabetes. Wild
swings of glucose levels can be dangerous for both mother and child.
Coconut oil has been proven in multiple scientific trials to help regulate
glucose in both diabetics and non-diabetics. Adding coconut oil to your
daily diet when you realize you are pregnant could help you avoid the risk
of gestational diabetes.

6. Car Product Alternative: Test in


an inconspicuous spot on your car

any excess.

7. Drive Away Insects: Mix some coconut oil and peppermint oil extract to
create a naturally non-toxic insect repellant. If youre going to be outside
for the day, you dont have to worry about the bugs and mosquitoes. Its
cheaper, far safer for adults and children, and it smells better than
anything you can get over-the-counter.
8. Natural Shoe Polish: Moisturize leather and polish shoes with ease.
Coconut oil leaves leather goods looking beautiful and extends the life of
your shoes, belts, luggage, tech bags, and so much more with monthly
applications.
9. Homemade Gunk Remover: If you have something sticky or clumpy
on a surface in your house use coconut oil instead of the foul products
you find at the store!
Mix an equal amount of baking soda and coconut oil, blending until you
have a paste. Apply to the problem area and allow it to sit for ten minutes
before removing with a plastic putty knife or old toothbrush.
10. Natural Furniture Polish: The wood in your home is going to love
coconut oil as much as your body does. For a polish you wont believe
and a scent that youll love, in a spot that isnt visible, test a mix of coconut
oil with a couple of drops of lemon juice.
11. Leaf Cleaner Safe for Plants: If you have houseplants, use a lint-free
cloth to wipe the leaves with a bit of coconut oil instead using of the
aerosol products filled with chemicals you find in the store. It takes very
little time and your plants will thrive!
12. No More Soap Scum: Instead of harsh chemical alternatives, clean your
shower with a small amount of coconut oil on a damp cloth. Spritz the
area with white vinegar and wipe. Your shower will sparkle!
13. Lubricate String Instruments: Guitars, cellos, violins and other string
instruments will respond as well to coconut oil as the harsh products most
common on the market. Use it as you would similar items, testing with a
tiny amount to determine the proper ratio.
14. Protect Your Mouth Guard: Coconut oils natural antibacterial properties
will sanitize your mouth guard between uses and keep it from drying out.
Simply smooth it over the surface and allow to sit. When youre ready to
use it, rinse and insert.

PET CARE: COCONUT OIL FOR YOUR FUR


BABIES

Many of the healthy benefits of coconut oil for humans also apply to our furry
best friends! It aids pet digestion, improves their coats, helps prevent infection,
and more! It can be given to them in their food and water daily or applied
externally on their skin and coats. Keep a tub handy just for your fur babies,
whether it be a dog or a cat!
1. Brush Your Pets for a Glowing Coat: Every few weeks, simply brush
your pets with some coconut oil on the bristles to help ward off fleas,
soften their coat, and improve shine. Within a couple of hours, there is no
trace of it and theyll smell great, too!
2. Stop the Scratching! Use coconut oil liberally on your pets skin as a
moisturizer. Hot spots, cuts and scratches, stings, bites, allergic
reactions, and even cracked paws will love the gentle goodness of
coconut oil that is also completely harmless if they lick it away. Apply it
directly to irritated places on their skin for soothing relief.

3.
Love Your Pets, Hate Their
Breath? Add a bit of coconut oil to
your pets water to give them fresh
breath, a sleek coat, and prevent many
joint disorders that are common in
larger dogs. It improves digestive
system functions and enables better
absorption of nutrients. The
antioxidants in coconut oil are as
beneficial for your four-legged friends
as they are for their human. Better yet,
feed it to them directly off of a spoon.

Healing is a matter of
time, but it is
sometimes also a
matter of opportunity.
~Hippocrates

You can give your pet 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of bodyweight daily or
about 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds. Start with teaspoon since your pet
will need to get use to the addition of coconut oil in their diet and build up
to the recommended dose over the next three to four weeks.

26

4. Add to Pet Shampoo: Coconut oil is an excellent deep condition


treatment for your pet. It smells nice, absorbs well into their skin, and
gives them antioxidants during bath time. If your animal has longer hair,
youre going to love the detangling effect of this simple treatment.
5. In Their Food: Start slow less than 1 teaspoon a day and increase
gradually over a month. Recommended dose is about 1 teaspoon of
coconut oil per 10 pounds of bodyweight or a tablespoon per 30 pounds.
Start with about a of the recommended dosage and build up to the
recommended level over the next few weeks. If your pet receives wet
food, simply stir it in they will love it! Youll notice increased energy,
sleeker coat, and better breath.
Praise your pet with a teaspoon of coconut oil and watch them lick it up!
6. Helps with Digestion: Coconut oil works for pets much like people. It
balances the gut bacteria naturally, settles upset stomach, and soothes
digestive inflammation.
7. Calms Arthritis and Strengthens Joints: Large dogs and older cats and
dogs are plagued by joint problems especially in their hips. Coconut oil
lubricates the joints and returns flexibility to the ligaments, giving your
beloved best friend a new lease on life!
8. Say Goodbye to Hairballs: If your pet suffers from hairballs or a
persistent cough (that isnt kennel cough) consider giving them coconut
oil to soothe and prevent throat irritation.
9. Diabetes Prevention: Just like humans, coconut oil works to balance
blood sugar levels in your pet to prevent or control diabetes. Thyroids in
dogs also respond well to coconut oil. These two factors help to maintain
healthy body weight known causes of pet diabetes just as it is for
people.

With regulated blood sugar, weight control, and inner body wellness, youll see
positive changes in your fur baby within weeks!

WHAT TYPE OF COCONUT OIL SHOULD YOU


BUY?
The quality of the coconut oil you choose is important. When we talk about
coconut oil we always mean extra virgin organic coconut oil.

Brands on the market use various production methods, some of which limit and
can even cancel the benefits of using this natural wonder. Make sure you check
your labels!
Coconut oil in its purest state has no cholesterol and is free of trans fats. In its
non-hydrogenated state, it is packed with medium chain fatty acids. Your body
loves coconut oil because it is easily broken down and used for immediate fuel.

Fatty Acid Composition of Coconut Oil

Saturated Fatty Acids

(Saturated) Medium Chain

Mono-unsaturated

Poly-unsaturated

91% saturated fatty acids (65% of those saturated fats are in the form
of medium chain fatty acids)
6% mono-unsaturated fatty acids
3% poly-unsaturated fatty acids

It is these specific fats that make coconut oil unique from all other saturated fats.
The health benefits are being proven in one study after another. Doctors and
scientists have discovered that this abundant and inexpensive product has
incredible versatility...from a skin cream to an Alzheimers treatment.

Using coconut oil for cooking will add light flavor to your foods without degrading
into harmful chemicals at higher temperatures the way more commonly used oils
do.
If you select refined coconut oil you will be using a product that has gone
through several manufacturing processes. It has no scent because it is bleached
and deodorized. Refined coconut oil doesnt use fresh coconut but kernels that
have been dried and stored for an undetermined and often unstated length of
time.
The difference between buying unrefined or extra virgin coconut oil is easy to
see, smell, and taste. There should be a light coconut flavor and scent, it will be
white in color, and have a creamy texture at room temperature.
Unrefined oils are made from fresh coconuts, but you still have to watch the
processing methods to determine the right product for you. Refined oils are
cheaper and easier to find, but unrefined virgin oils are worth the slightly higher
cost.
In our own research here at Daily Superfood Love, weve discovered that the
best coconut oils list the words: raw, organic, and extra virgin on the label.
They are processed from fresh raw coconuts that use a wet milling
process.
Never buy coconut oil extracted from dried coconut, also known as copra,
which could be processed with chemical solvents.
Refined, bleached, and deodorized coconut oil made from copra is processed
further to create hydrogenated coconut oil. Always avoid hydrogenated coconut
oil. This creates a coconut oil not found in nature, that contains trans fats.
Hydrogenated coconut oil also stays unnaturally solid at temperatures higher
than 76 degrees F.
Choosing the right coconut oil means it is raw, virgin, organic, 100% non-toxic,
and has all the health benefits to supercharge your health starting now.

COCONUT OIL DOSAGE CHART

Coconut oil is safe for people of all ages, but check with your childs pediatrician
for exact dosage based on their age and weight.
For newborns, the application of coconut oil through breastfeeding should be
sufficient if it is reapplied throughout the day.
This is a general guideline! Coconut oil is non-toxic so it would be almost
impossible to overdose on it. However, too much may lead to loose stools and
that is no fun for anyone.

Age 12 24: 1 to 1 tablespoons per day.


Age 25 34: 1 to 2 tablespoons per day.
Age 35 44: 2 to 2 tablespoons per day.
Age 45 54: 2 to 3 tablespoons per day.
Age 55 69: 3 to 3 tablespoons per day.
Age 70 years and up: 4 tablespoons per day.

COCONUT OIL PET DOSAGE CHART

1 teaspoon per day per 10 pounds of bodyweight
