50+ uses of everyday products that will help you save money and keep you healthy

2) Coconut oil. Coconut oil has a wide range of health benefits. You can use it to relieve constipation, boost your metabolism and even treat yeast infections. When consumed in moderation coconut oil is great for heart health and weight loss, so try it as a replacement for coffee creamer and cook with it in place of butter. It is an amazing beauty product and can replace a number of more expensive items, so try using it as a makeup remover, body scrub, or moisturizer.
Coconut oil is great for using around the house, too. Try it as a natural wood polish, and even for getting chewing gum out of hair or carpet! Finally, if your pet is suffering from itchiness unrelated to fleas, try massaging a little coconut oil into its skin to alleviate any allergies and dryness causing the discomfort.
3) Apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is fast becoming popular for its many health benefits and uses around the house. It’s great for gut health: try this colon cleanse, or this fiery tonic thought to kill microbes, treat infections and lower blood pressure. Apple cider vinegar is also fabulous on our skin. It has a pH level close to that of our skin which soothes irritation, and a number of natural acids which gently remove dead skin cells and tighten pores. Spritz it on your face as a natural toner, or use it to soothe painful sunburn, and even to treat athlete’s foot. Use it as a soak for brittle nails.
Try diluting the vinegar into a spray bottle for a DIY kitchen disinfectant, or use it as a safe and non-toxic weed-killer. See this article for more great tips using apple cider vinegar!
