Coconut Oil Makes Good Paleo Lube

What do YOU use virgin coconut oil for? Our previously disdained saturated fat-filled coconut oil is now pretty much accepted by even the most skeptical as a healthy oil. I’ve written about why coconut is actually very beneficial for you to eat. But it’s not just good for cooking.

The Many Uses of Coconut Oil

You can put it on your skin, your hair, your nails, eczema, psoriasis, you name it. It can be used as a massage oil, too, of course. It’s soothing and anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. even wrote a post called “7 Great Uses for Coconut Oil” that you should check out. (TMI ALERT) Honestly, before Paleo I used to get vaginal yeast infections all the time, and coconut oil was the only thing that would make my life livable when I had them. It’s incredibly soothing and healing. Plus, like I said, it’s a fantastic lubricant for your sex life!

Edible Haven Coconut Oil

Now, if you haven’t hastily abandoned your computer to go try it out yourself, I want to let you know that I stumbled upon a new coconut oil company called Edible Haven.

I’ve tried lots of brands of coconut oil, and this organic virgin coconut oil does not disappoint. It’s not overly “coconutty” if that’s what keeps you from coconut oil, and it imparts that amazing fluffy quality to scrambled eggs. Love that.

  1. It is pretty much the only skin moisturizing oil I use, and of course it is my go-to cooking oil.

    If I want a thick balm, I mix in melted shea butter, and sometimes I add essential oils for fragrance, but most often it just goes on straight — body, face hair.

  2. OK, you put it out there so it is fair game. How exactly do you use coconut oil for yeast infections? Is it preventive or as treatment after flair up?

    1. bubba29 – No problem :) I’d put it on topically when I’d have a flare-up. It helps kill the yeast, heal the tissue, and it takes away the pain/itching almost immediately. I haven’t found anything else that works like that. The other thing you can do with a yeast infection is douche with potassium iodide in water – works like a charm.
