8 Reasons why you should add coconut oil to your survival stockpile
By Zoey Sky // Mar 21, 2024

Coconut oil is derived from the flesh of mature coconuts. If you're not sure what kind to get, unrefined or extra virgin coconut oil is the best kind of coconut oil because it goes through minimal processing.

This means extra virgin coconut oil contains more nutrients and beneficial compounds than refined coconut oil.

As a prepper, you should consider stocking up on coconut oil because it has several survival uses. As a bonus, coconut oil does not need refrigeration, so it’s the perfect addition to your survival stockpile or bug-out bag. (h/t to Homesteading.com)

Helps with cracked skin and chapped lips

If you are experiencing symptoms of dehydration like cracked skin and chapped lips, coconut oil can help.

Apply a bit of melted coconut oil to cracked skin or chapped lips to keep them moisturized. The coconut oil can also help relieve any pain or discomfort.

Moisturizes your hair

Coconut oil can be used as a hair mask. Melt some coconut oil in a small bowl, but check the temperature. If it gets too hot, you can burn your scalp.

Slowly massage the warm, melted coconut oil into your scalp and roots. Leave the oil on for an hour and then wash it out.

Coconut oil can support healthy hair because it is a natural conditioner and is great for hair growth and split ends. For a scented conditioner, add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil before applying it to your hair.

Helps with deep bruising

If you or someone at home is suffering from deep bruising, apply coconut oil directly to the bruise.

Massage the oil into your skin using small circular motions for about three to four minutes. This can help soothe damaged tissue associated with deep bruising.

Treats minor cuts and scrapes

Coconut oil has natural cleansing properties that can help with minor cuts and scrapes. To use, simply apply a thin layer of coconut oil directly to the open wound.

Cover the wound with an adhesive bandage to keep it clean. (Related: Natural healing: Survival uses for coconut oil.)

Naturally soothes rashes

A coconut oil-based salve can help relieve the itchiness and redness of a rash.

A coconut oil salve can also support your body's natural healing process, thanks to its beneficial properties.

Excellent for salves and balms

Homemade salves and balms are usually made with essential oils and a carrier oil like coconut oil.

Coconut oil is a great carrier oil and can be used to make healing salves and balms after SHTF.

Removes rust from knife blades

You can restore knives with rusty blades with a bit of coconut oil.

Apply a thick layer of coconut oil to your knife blade. Let it sit for one to two hours then wipe it off. Repeat if necessary.

Useful for making candles

Before SHTF, you can make DIY candles if you have coconut oil.

Melt the coconut oil until it is liquid. Next, secure a wick into a heat-resistant glass container.

Carefully pour the melted coconut oil into the glass container and make sure the wick stays in place while pouring. Let the coconut oil dry completely until it is solid again, then light the wick as needed.
