Coconut oil. If you don’t use it, you should. If you don’t have any in your house, stop what you’re doing and go get some. Seriously, you can use that sh*t on anything- it can effectively replace countless items in your home. Here is a list of 31 ways you can use coconut oil.


  1. Makeup remover.
  2. Replace your shaving cream.

  4. Carrier oil for essential oil application.
  5. Hair masks.
  6. Leave in conditioner.
