Coconut oil is still one of my all time favorite super foods. Honestly, how could it not be, here is a food that will make your skin look more youthful, boost your immune system, help you lose weight and even prevent or cure Alzheimer’s.
Even the pharmaceutical industry now knows about the benefits of coconut oil. They have developed a synthetic medium chain triglyceride drug they are testing on Alzheimer patients, because of course they can’t make money on coconut oil.
If you are a little lost, just go back and read my blog entry “Crazy for Coconut Oil” to refresh your memory.
Since I first wrote about coconut oil, I have discovered even more ways to use my giant gallon tub of organic cold pressed coconut oil.
- Popping popcorn – I take just under ¼ cup of coconut oil and ¼ cup of organic pop corn and throw it in the popper along with some salt. Coconut oil is so much more nutritious than any other oils that popcorn is popped in and it metabolizes very fast and is NOT stored as fat. Best of all, it taste great!
- Massage Oil – a truly edible massage oil. I am not going to elaborate, but I think you can figure it out from here.
- Sun Burn Relief – Coconut Oil has a cooling effect on the skin. It will moisturize, prevent peeling, blistering and even scarring.
- Toothpaste – yes it makes a great toothpaste. Just mix equal parts baking soda and coconut oil. Remember coconut oil is anti-bacterial and anti-viral so it is great for preventing cavities, canker sores, and getting rid of those nasty viruses that can linger in your mouth. You’ll save a lot of money and skip all those harmful ingredients found in most toothpaste.
- Deep Hair Conditioning Treatment – Yes it works wonders at repairing dry damaged hair and split ends at a fraction of the cost of those expensive hair conditioning treatments that have coconut oil in them.
- Make Up Remover – I slather coconut oil all over my face and eyes, then gently wipe off with a tissue. It removes my makeup and mascara without any harsh ingredients.
- Body Lotion – After my evening bath, I put coconut oil on my entire body. Coconut Oil restores natural saturated fat levels to the skin, subcutaneous fat layers, and to the individual cell membranes. Interestingly enough, you will not be greasy or smell like a coconut. Coconut oil is literally food for your skin and is quickly absorbed or should I say “eaten up” by your skin, leaving it soft and supple.
One word of caution, if you are allergic to nuts, coconut oil is a nut oil.
