Vita Coco Coconut Oil

I was sent a sample to review.

Have you tried cooking or baking with coconut oil yet?

A healthier alternative to butter and oils. I have just received some for cooking and I can not wait to try it out.

Apparently, you can do most things with it. Cook it, eat it, wear it, use it for health and beauty, and even condition your hair with it!!

I have been sent a sample from Vita Coco to try out and make some yummy recipes up with it. So far I have made some cherry and nut granola. I will be posting m recipes up very soon.

Watch this space.

Here are a few things I also heard it is good for:


Frying and adding to your baking. A great alternative to fats and oils.


Pop a few teaspoons in your hand let it melt and rub it into the roots of your hair. This helps condition your hair. Do you have a dry scalp? It works great for this too. Simply place a few teaspoons in your hands, it melts in seconds and then rubs it into your scalp. Leave for a little while then wash out.

*Update* Tried and tested. This works great!!

The next day you may want to wash your hair again as it will be slightly greasy but no worries as it has done your scalp good.

Lip Balm:

If you have dry lips you can pop a bit on them to soften them up a little.


Adding some moisture to your skin if you have dry skin.

Massage Oil:

It feels so nice and smooth. It also melts in your hands in seconds.

What would you make with it or use it for?

Here are some great ideas on my Pinterest board:
