The Wonders of Coconut Oil !!

20130328-103604.jpg

I have completely fallen in love. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about coconut oil? Could it be the sounds of soothing music playing while receiving a hot oil massage at the local day spa? Although this could be one of the things that crosses your mind, it’s not all coconut oil is used for. I realize that coconut oil is not an alternative to all things, but I do hope that you will find something helpful while reading.

  1. I absolutely LOVE putting coconut in my hair! It’s helped my hair grow and it’s healthy. I didn’t realize all of the other uses though! Thanks for sharing this since I have a huge jar that’s been sitting around since Christmas lol… now I know other ways to use it.

  2. Coconut Oil is THE fat! If ever there were such a thing, haha. It’s the only oil I cook with. Great to help with weight loss because of the way the fat is constructed. Marvellous for your skin when consumed. I need to moisturise less and less these days. Raw, organic, cold pressed is how I’m pushing mine. Would love to hear more about oil pulling. Will you write a post on this?
