Coconut oil is the ultimate food. Not only is it hailed in the culinary world, but it is also celebrated in the beauty and hygiene department. This versatile oil can be used in your everyday routine, from making your own DIY deodorant to whipped body butter.

This amazing oil is great for the skin because it locks in moisture and protects your skin from the harsh environment. It also doubles as a sunscreen! Coconut oil can also help soften and grow your hair, while helping it maintain its shine.

When used in toothpaste, coconut oil helps the body absorb calcium and magnesium better, thus, it promotes healthy teeth. Learn how to make your own natural toothpaste with coconut oil in the video above!
