I swear by coconut oil. Whether I’m cooking with it or lathering on my body the benefits are definitely there.
About a month ago I started oil pulling. I know, I know. It’s trending in a major way.
I only started because I HATE the dentist (by hate I mean I’m scared) and my tooth was bothering me because I have super sensitive teeth. Today, my tooth no longer hurts, my teeth are pearly white and my gums are gorgeous.
My daily routine consists of walking up and making a beeline to the kitchen to grab the coconut oil out of the spice cabinet, but I wanted something more convenient and less ruffian so I decided to create coconut oil dots. It also feeds my obsession with jars.
Here’s how to make these easy peasy dots:
Start with 2 cups coconut oil – softened.
Whip the coconut oil to get most of the lumps out until you get the consistency of sour cream.
Place the coconut oil into a pastry bag or ziplock bag that you can snip at the corner.
On parchment paper, squeeze the desired sized dots.
Place in freezer for approximately 5 minutes.
The dots will slide off the parchment paper.
Throw into a jar with lid for storage.
Coconut dots are perfect for plopping in your coffee, swishing around in your mouth, stirring in your oatmeal and using as a body lotion after a hot shower. The possibilities are endless!
