2. Better “Bulletproof” Coffee
While you're in the kitchen, why not add coconut oil to your coffee for some extra energy and a metabolism-boosting morning kick? Known as “Bulletproof” coffee, adding a healthy fat to good-quality coffee, along with a flavouring of your choice like vanilla or cinnamon, can be a great way to start your morning. A great choice for vegans too!
3. Better Hair
Apply coconut oil to your hair helps to reduce protein loss – for both damaged and undamaged hair. It can be used for both pre- and post wash hair grooming.
4. Better Skin
Coconut oil can be used as a lip gel to sooth cracked lips. Coconut oil is also a great skin softener, helping you do away with rough, dry skin – especially on hands and feet.
