I originally bought a jar of coconut oil to do “oil pulling” where you swish around the oil in your mouth, and it’s supposed to draw out toxins as well as help with other things, like clear up your skin and make your teeth whiter (which I think it really does).

But the texture of coconut oil before it melts in my mouth agitates me, so I’ve been searching for other uses for coconut oil to get rid of this great big jar of coconut oil
