15 Coconut Oil Uses to Try.

Ingredients:

Pure, organic, extra virgin coconut oil. (is solid at room temperature, liquid when in the palm of your hand or heated otherwise)

Description:

Coconut oil boasts many health benefits from its healthy fats. One of the good fats, lauric acid, makes up about 50% of coconut oil. Lauric acid is a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in human breast milk. It supports healthy metabolism and is being studied for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial health-protecting properties. Some researchers predict that lauric acid will become as well known in health circles as Omega-3 is today.

One of my personal favorite sources is the unrefined coconut oil from Mountain Rose Herbs. This stuff is the real deal and is exponentially beneficial to both the inside and outside of your body. If you have ever read the ingredient list on, say, body lotion, lip balm, or make-up remover, you perhaps had the same shocked reaction that I did. What are all of those chemicals, and why am I about to put them into/onto my body? Coconut oil’s obvious use is to replace the current oil you use in your kitchen, and it does an excellent job of it, as well adding a wonderful flavor to your cooking. What is less obvious is that Mountain Rose Herb’s coconut oil has so many other amazing uses.

    I have been looking for a natural makeup remover. Thought I would give this a try since Jesica mentioned she uses coconut oil. I was shocked by how much LOVE it! Sure, it makes your skin a bit greasy but it totally beats red burning eyes from chemical removers! Thanks Jesica!
