I keep a little jar in my bathroom cabinet for “whatever”

-flyaway hair that needs to be tamed down while the hair is being styled?  Rub a little coconut oil onto the hands — just a little — a quarter teaspoon or less — and rub the hands over the hair.   No more flyaway hair, and the hair is easy to style.  And the hands feel good too!  And it smells great!

-making brown rice?  Add a tablespoon of coconut oil, a dash of (pink Himalayan or pink Hawaiian) salt to the water, add the rice, and cook…the rice turns out yummier than ever

-cooking scrambled eggs?  Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to your skillet, and stir in the scrambled egg mixture…awesome

-making popcorn?  Use coconut oil…the popcorn turns out very, very tasty!
