The many amazing uses of coconut oil

“Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.” - Jim Rohn

Coconut oil is one of those things I literally can’t be without.

I keep two jars in the kitchen and another in the bathroom.

Wondering why two in the kitchen? One is ‘regular’ coconut tasting and the other is flavourless for those times I really don’t want a hint of coconut in my cooking – I draw the line at coconut flavoured roast potatoes!

I often share recipes, DIY home-spa treatments and other ways to use coconut oil with clients and my members as it’s such a versatile product.

I don’t just keep coconut oil for cooking. It’s used for all manner of things in my house from a homemade ‘Vicks’ style menthol balm (Want to know more about this? You can drop me a message HERE to ask for details) to a nourishing hair mask or a simple cuticle oil.

Today I discovered a whole new use for it and I couldn’t wait to share it!

If you saw the photo in this post and thought I might be sharing an amazing DIY beauty treatment I’m sorry to disappoint you, this tip is all about home DIY not DIY spa (although if you subscribe to my newsletter HERE you’ll no doubt receive some of the DIY spa recipes amongst my musings in time 😉).

A brand new use for coconut oil

So, without further ado, here’s my brand new way to use coconut oil…

The door to my partners home office has started to squeak and this morning as I poked my head around his door it seemed particularly loud, so I made a throwaway comment about how noisy it was.

His reply? “Why don’t you put some coconut oil on it, you put it everywhere else!

“What a brilliant idea” I said and off I went to get some coconut oil.

Two minutes later, with a small amount of coconut oil rubbed into the hinges, the door was as quiet as a mouse.

I love natural solutions and try to avoid endocrine-disrupting chemicals and toxic products as much as I possibly can, so I was super-pleased with this solution.

No nasty chemicals or petroleum-based products were needed. Coconut oil is 100% natural and completely safe.

Bonus tip: What to do with all of those empty coconut oil jars?

This is yet another amazing thing about coconut oil, it comes in glass jars (or at least the one I get does) and as you can imagine, over the years I’ve got through quite a few of these. They don’t get thrown away though.

The recycled jars are used to store nuts, seeds, herbs and spices as well as being used to for freshly made sauces and dips such as pesto or hummus. They’re also used to store leftover food too rather than using plastic tubs. They also find use as pen holders and containers for small items too.
