It’s phenomenal for deep conditioning your hair too! The only thing I don’t like about it is that it can be kind of a pain to rinse out.

Coconut oil is only solid at cold temperatures. In the summer it will be liquid. I like to add a spoonful to my coffee (tastes great!) or tea. You can also add it to cooking and sauces, or cook eggs in it.  I also like to cook green beans in it. 

Too Much Information, it also makes a great personal lubricant–but not while TTC.   Darling Husband got kind of sick of it though. The smell of coconut made him think of sex!

i have heard that it’s also good for moisturizing nipples for breastfeeding moms. I have been using it to moisturize my tummy, and other places for no stretch marks, along with cocoa butter and shea butter.

Edit: oh yeah and I heard that it’s great for preventing diaper rashes.

Cooking with coconut oil also prevents constipation…

I’ve used it as a moistuizer for years, especially in the winter when my skin gets really dry. I’ve never thought about using is a chapstick though. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

@stephanie63087:  I use it in my hair as a conditioner and also to prevent dry ends! I LOVE it! I used to use Morrocon oil everyday but I ran out so I just use the coconut oil as a replacement..much cheaper! haha

I am obsessed with coconut oil. Another thing I use it for that wasn’t mentioned yet is as a makeup remover.
