Vata people and kapha people might usually find coconut oil too cold to use. But in the heat of the summer coconut oil is such a panacea of soothing bliss!
Coconut oil has many applications. It is great for soothing your skin after a day in the sun. It’s lovely to mix with salt as an exhilarating, exfoliating scrub. And it is absolutely wonderful as a topping to popcorn.
Coconut oil popcorn with dark chocolate drizzle is one of my absolute favorite recipes to make with this healthy oil.
Coconut Oil Popcorn with Organic Dark Chocolate Drizzle
This is a movie time favorite at our house. It is so satisfying in texture and the combination of salt and sweet makes it so pleasing.

1 tsp coarse sea salt
- Start by popping your popcorn. If you do so on the stove then use the coconut oil to pop it. If you are air popping your popcorn then drizzle 2 tbsp of coconut oil over it while it is still hot.
