Coconut oil has changed the way I think of natural foods and remedies. I first tried it when away from home visiting my daughter 2 years ago. I had a rash, and she suggested I try putting the coconut oil on it. She claimed it cured diaper rash, and a host of other skin problems. Both my daughters have used it on babies’ severe diaper rashes, with it clearing up in less than 2 days. After studying up on it myself, it turns out that the properties in coconut oil make it great for preventing certain diseases and has antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
I have since used it for several skin ailments and as local topical antibiotic. My husband even uses it daily on his stump before putting on his prosthetic leg. It helps keep the raw skin moist and healthy after all the hand sanitizer he slathers on it first. Then he puts in on again at night to sooth the hickey made during the hours of walking in the prosthetic. I use it on my scalp in small amounts to keep away dandruff in my aging skin. I rub in on my wet hair after a shower to aid in restoring the shine from my dry and treated hair. I don’t use much, just the amount those expensive $40.00 salon bottles say to use, about a nickel or quarter sized amount. I use it instead of lotion after shaving my legs. It works wonderfully to take my mascara off, then to help with those fine lines around my eyes.
It is equally beneficial when used as a food and ingested into your body. It has a medium chain fatty acid and breaks down immediately for use by your body, instead of being stored as fat. It has been reported to speed up your metabolism and increase energy, and has great potential as a weight loss aid.
I keep some by my bed, in the bathroom and of course the main jar in the kitchen for cooking. Frying or browning in coconut oil makes things taste exotic and mild. Baking with it adds to the sweetness of the bread or cookies. It has a low melting point (at around 75 degrees) yet it doesn’t burn like corn oil or olive oil.
The there are so many uses for this amazing product but not every bottle is the same. You need to look for an unprocessed, unrefined organically grown source in order to get all of the benefits. Over processing, refining, and heating destroys many of the beneficial aspects of the oil. Our Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil is is made from coconuts grown and processed organically, without the use of harmful chemicals or high temperature processing.
