There's a whole bunch of reasons why we love coconut oil - it's a great beauty product, great cooking oil and very useful shaving oil.

If you already knew about how great coconut oil is for the skin and hair, you're about to learn about a whole new range of things we can use this highly versatile (and practically free) oil to do.

Here are 5 weird but very useful thing you can do with coconut oil:

 

  • Treat infections: Health experts suggest that coconut oil contains Monolaurin which is also found in breast milk and is believed to help babies fight against infections. It also has anti-fungal properties which is great in treating infections, bites and bruises. It also helps check acne breakouts.

  • Shaving cream: Need to shave those legs? Then slather on some coconut oil and watch the hair come off unobtrusively. It nourishes the skin as you shave, sparing you any itchy feeling that may have otherwise been the case, and the best part - it's a 100% natural.

  • Makes a great polish: Need to add that shine back to your leather couch or metal/wood surfaces? Put some coconut oil on a clean cloth and wipe your fixtures/furniture back to health.

  • Make-up remover: In addition to being a great skin and hair moisturiser, coconut oil also makes for a great make up remover. Apply all over the face and wipe off with a cotton wool or wipe.
