Raise your hand if you're an avid fan of coconut oil! Okay, good. Glad to hear that you are. After all, this miraculous oil can be used for virtually anything. If we're being honest, it's sort of like a household superhero. Cost-effective, long-lasting, and smells amazing. Can it get better? Verdict is a hard no.
First things first, let's talk benefits. Coconut Oil is the ruler of the kitchen, bathroom, skin, etc. It is a lightweight, natural emollient that makes it super versatile, and able to easily blend with other ingredients. The slightly sweet taste makes it a great alternative to sugar in baking, and the ability to withstand heat up to 350 degrees F makes it a solid choice for stovetop cooking.
