I mentioned Coconut Oil in a post yesterday, and have had a little bit of interest in it. Let me elaborate on the uses and benefits of Coconut Oil.
Baking/Cooking – use it for anything you would use oil or butter for
Toast – spread it on toast like it is butter (we actually had peanut butter and coconut oil sadwiches yesterday).
Skin Moisturizer – It’s great for the entire body, including your face.
Natural Sunscreen – I have yet to really study this use in length, but many indiginous people use it as a sunscreen. If you are ever stranded on an island, it is recommended that you use the coconut oils as a sunscreen.
Coconut oil has anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects. Some studies have shown it to help with HIV/AIDS, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chrohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other Digestive Issues, Thyroid problems, High Cholesterol, Candida and Yeast, and the list goes on. Read more on this HERE.
It is one of my favorite things, and it so good for our bodies. Do you use Coconut oil? I know my readers would love to hear any testimonies about it, so please feel free to share!
