One of my favorite organic products is coconut oil. I haven’t switched to using it too much in the kitchen yet, but we use it as a health & beauty product all the time, and the current sale at Amazon.com is a great price for stocking up!
Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is on sale for $13.74 for two 15-oz. tubs, but when you use the “Subscribe & Save” feature to add it to your cart, you’ll save 15%, which brings your total to $11.68 with free shipping!
You can stay subscribed to get regular shipments, or once your order is placed, you can go to My Account->Manage Subscribe & Save Items and cancel the subscription.
So what do I use coconut oil for?
- In place of regular lotion
- To shave my legs (although you do have to replace your razor more often because of the oil build up, unless you can tell me a secret to cleaning that off really well!)
- Wind-chapped cheeks or chapped lips on the girls
- Diaper rash
- Dry feet/callouses (be sure to put socks on so you don’t track oil everywhere)
- Dry scalp/damaged hair
In the kitchen, you can also use it for:
- In baked goods
- In smoothies
The two-pack is a great way to get started because you can designate one for kitchen use and one for the bathroom!
Thanks, Deal Seeking Mom!
Do you use coconut oil at home? Do you have any other uses to add to the list?
