Coconut oil is not deemed as the same unhealthy oil that it was advertised twenty years ago. Now, healthcare experts realise that there are two types of saturated fats—the ones that clog up your arteries and cause heart disease and stroke, and the other type of saturated fat that is immediately utilised as energy, rather than stored in the body to cause heart trouble. Coconut oil contains saturated fat, which is absorbed by the liver and transported into ketones. Researchers have discovered that this can reverse the brain degeneration of Alzheimer’s Disease.

The winter season is another time when it is important to care for the skin. There are thousands of moisturising cream blends available today that promise to soothe dry skin, but it is also important to check the ingredients label to check whether the product contains parabens and/or synthetic fragrance. Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil are natural and nourishing for any skin type. The addition of synthetic fragrance can cause skin irritation, so apply an ingredient that is safe enough to eat. Remember, the skin is the largest organ in the human body. Whatever is applied upon it is absorbed.

Coconut oil is not only beneficial for the hair, skin, and nails, but it is available as an immediate energy source. Coconut oil is added to many hair-conditioning formulas, but the hair is also porous and absorbs all of the ingredients, which is why natural products are best to use on the skin and hair. To benefit the mouth, teeth, and gums, the Avurvedic technique of oil pulling is one of the best ways to treat internal parasites, and prevent bad breath. Simply add one teaspoon of coconut oil into the mouth, wait for it to turn into liquid, and swill it around the mouth for ten to twenty minutes, before spitting into the sink or toilet.

When coconut oil is applied to any abrasion, it immediately forms a protective shield from dust, bacteria, and viruses. Many people believe that the real staples in our diet are bread and milk, when coconut oil should be the staple in everyone’s home. It is inexpensive, is safe to cook with, encourages a healthy metabolism, and even aids weight loss. What other available oil is there that smells and tastes divine, makes the skin baby soft, and supports weight loss? Buy it from health food shops or online. However, buy only cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil.

Coconut oil is perfect to use in skincare scrubs. Oats are inexpensive and blend especially well with coconut oil. Blend sugar, shea butter, and coconut oil together to make a scrumptious body scrub that smells good enough to eat. When coconut oil is applied generously to the skin and left to settle for several minutes, before wiping with a hot wash cloth, it will pull out dirt, make-up and bacteria and leave the skin squeaky clean. Do not underestimate the power of coconut oil.
