When I was visiting my mom and dad in Colorado, my mom showed me the benefits of Coconut Oil. Many people (I found out online) believe it is a bad oil and will make everyone fat! I don't think that is the case ;) After reading so much information about it, I am excited and happy!
Its meant to be eaten and applied topically. So I have started using it in my tea in the mornings, which tastes really nice and then at night I use it all over my face and skin and of course the protruding belly, (it diminishes stretch marks.) But my favorite, is that I use it as eye makeup remover. I use a cotton ball and then dip it into the oil and take off all of my eye makeup with it. It comes off so nicely! And it hydrates my eyes and skin at the same time.
I found it in the health food store and Whole Foods. It was better priced at Whole Foods. :) Virgin Coconut Oil is right up there with mother's milk. So if that helps give you a clue on all the benefits I hope everyone will check it out. From skin irritations, rashes, its anti viral, anti bacterial and anti fungal. Its good for the heart, and great for the metabolism, and many many more that I can't remember! But check it out and see what you think. :)
