8 Reasons to Bring Coconut Oil on Your Next Vacation

8 Reasons to Bring Coconut Oil on Your Next Vacation

As a girl, I find it hard to travel anywhere without my makeup bag. On a recent trip to London, my heart was broken when airport security made me fit all my liquids into a single standard sized zip bloc bag. I said goodbye to a lot of valuable travel sized liquids that day. Since the idea of paying for a checked bag makes me cringe, I started becoming more resourceful with the products I choose. I found one product in particular that I used for almost everything….coconut oil! I’ve posted a beauty hack using this product before but I figured it was so incredible that it needed it’s own article. I only use organic extra virgin coconut oil and an old essential oil or plastic bottle to carry it in. To melt the oil back into a liquid place it in a mug and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the oil is completetly melted. If you’re short on time, Shea Moisture sells a travel size available for purchase at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.


Here is a list of 8 things to replace with coconut oil…

  • Lip Balm
  • Make Up Remover
  • Moisturizer
  • Tanning Oil (In addition to regular SPF sunscreen)
  • Deep Conditioner
  • Cuticle Cream
  • Toothpaste (Oil pull, I do this in addition to regular toothpaste)
  • Detangler / Heat Protection

Happy Traveling,
