coconut oilI bet you didn’t know that Coconut Oil had so many awesome benefits and uses? This past year I switched out the vegetable and canola oil in my house and replaced it with Coconut oil that I buy in massive tubes from Costco. But I really love the Fair Trade, Kelapo Coconut Oil. They shared with me these great things that you could do with Coconut Oil that I had no idea. So I’m sharing them with you. 

Leave me a comment if you’ve tried any of these and it’s worked great!
