Her Solution: Removing the evidence from your knees, elbows, and so on. After a cut has healed over, rub coconut oil on the scar to gradually lighten it over time. This also works for stretch marks.

3. The Problem: Your hangnails are out of control.

6. The Problem: You frequently heat style your hair.

Her Solution: Strengthening weak and dry hair. Rub melted coconut oil onto your scalp and roots, then let it soak in for three hours. It may take a few lather-rinse-repeats to wash all the oil out, but you'll know it's gone once your shampoo starts lathering up normally.

12. The Problem: Your smile isn't sparkling.

Her Solution: Oil pulling, an Ayurvedic technique that involves rinsing your mouth with coconut oil. Supposedly it whitens your teeth and removes harmful bacteria.

13. The Problem: Your new boots are too stiff.

Her Solution: Softening the leather. Wipe your boots with coconut oil to help break them in. To be safe, test the oil on a small patch first.

14. The Problem: You forgot the bug spray.

Her Solution: Relieving itchy bug bites. Prevent hours of scratching by applying coconut oil directly to the bites. You can also combine it with peppermint oil extract to create homemade insect repellent.

15. The Problem: You're broke.
