We love autumn camping because it's cool enough to enjoy the campfire and not so cold that you freeze 🏕️

Every camper, hiker & adventurer knows the key to packing light is multi-purpose items.

Watch how Dignity Coconuts President Erik Olsen and his wife Bet used coconut oil to replace over 7 items on their packing list during a trip to the Boundary Waters, Minnesota.

HOW TO USE COCONUT OIL WHILE CAMPING

  • Cooking. Coconut oil has a high smoke point and is great for frying!
  • Deodorant. Due to its antimicrobial properties, coconut oil makes a great deodorant that won’t have your fellow campers smelling your BO.
  • Taking sap off your hands. No matter what you do, you're bound to get tree sap on your hands. Just rub a little coconut oil between your fingers and rinse with water for fresh clean hands.
  • Moisturize. Being outside all day can dry out your skin like nobody’s business. Just rub a little coconut oil in to soothe your skin.
  • Heal wounds. The wilderness = getting hurt. Rub some coconut oil on your scars and scratches to help them heal faster.
  • In the tent. Lube nowhere in sight? A little coconut oil goes a long way + it's 100% safe. 
  • Protect chapped lips. Don’t forget about your lips! Dab coconut oil to heal cracked lips and for an SPF of 5. 

Our 4 oz jars are the perfect size for traveling & won't add extra weight to your pack.

Be a HAPPY CAMPER & don't forget your coconut oil on your next hike! 🌲
