Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm.
I used to use olive oil all the time for cooking and I’ve pretty much switched to using coconut oil.I like it because unlike other oils, it has a high smoking point, so it can be used at higher temperatures. I also love it because its so versatile , it’s not just for cooking. It also has amazing benefits for inside & out.
Coconut oil also has some great benefits:
• A healthy alternative to cooking oils
• Curbs sugar cravings and energy slumps
• Natural all-round beauty product
Coconut oil contains short-term medium-chain saturated fatty acids that stimulate the body’s metabolism, and increase the activity of the thyroid. Its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties help boost the immune system and the fatty acids have been found to benefit digestive disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and microbial related tummy bugs.
I tried oil pulling with this oil. Oil pulling is when you swish a tablespoon oil in your mouth for 20 minutes. Its supposed to pull out the toxins & improve oral health. It works great as an organic mouthwash since it contains vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant & it has anti-bacterial & anti- fungal properties. It also claims to whiten teeth, prevent cavities & gingivitis , stronger teeth, & more. Don’t swish too hard since you will be doing it for 20 minutes. It was ok but hard since I am having trouble breathing out of one of my nostrils.
Coconut oil is also great for hair ( frizz, hair mask)
Moisturizing the body, cuticle softener, lip balm, make a sugar scrub
Great for removing mascara
and soooooooo much more.
This oil is so versatile.
