3 Ways to use Coconut Oil

Posted By Cherry Thongthavikiat on August 13, 2018

You’ve heard about the huge amount of health benefits associated with Coconut Oil and how good it is for you, but how exactly should you consume or even use it on a daily basis? Given that the fatty goodness is now easily accessible in local stores and supermarkets, paired with its proven beauty and health benefits, we’ve put together a handy list on how to use the in-demand oil:

1. Cooking

The easiest way to integrate Coconut Oil into your diet is as a substitute for existing cooking oils or butters. Use it in its solid form when baking, frying or even greasing baking pans. Coconut Oil also doesn’t break down easily at high temperatures like other oils do, plus it has a longer shelf life than others.

Not only is Coconut Oil a practical alternative to traditional cooking oils, but the health benefits associated with consuming it are plentiful! The composition of the oil means it is easier to digest than other cooking oils, as well as being antimicrobial and an antifungal. Your body will immediately convert the properties of coconut oil to energy instead of storing the oil as fat. This means you are able to break down the fat easily and quickly. What more could you ask for? A practical, healthy alternative and easy swap in your daily routine for a variety of health benefits…We are sold!

2. Hair Care

Something we at Raw Sugar know all too well about…(And precisely why Coconut is a core ingredient in a Hair Care Line). The Vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in Coconut Oil help with hair nourishment. Not only does it deeply hydrate the hair, but it works to also care for the scalp and helps to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles.

Use the oil on its own as a moisturizing mask before your daily shower, or use a hair masque that contains coconut as an ingredient: Our Healing Power Hair Masque is a great option that'll take your hair to the next level by keeping it soft, smooth, and glowing.


3. Skin Care

Another one of our well-versed topics, Coconut Oil is a brilliant natural skin moisturizer (take it from us, we love making Coconut the hero ingredient in our products). It absorbs so easily and readily into the skin, and can even help with melting away makeup. 

Rich in Vitamin E and proteins, Coconut Oil is great at soothing and moisturizing skin. The proteins also work to keep skin healthy, refreshed and rejuvenated – inside and out.
