Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is one of those oils that is extremely versatile externally and internally.  Not only is it anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, but it can be used in any diet such as Raw, Vegetarian, Paleo or Vegan.  Lauric acid is present in Coconut Oil which is said to kill off harmful pathogens and aid in staving off infections.  For myself, I consume one tablespoon of it orally to get all the benefits of this dynamic oil.  I also use it in my cooking.  Coconut Oil is recommended for oil pulling to cleanse the mouth of harmful bacteria and plaque.  It is highly moisturising when applied topically to the face, body and hair.  Below is a list of the benefits Coconut Oil contains, and why it should be a staple in your beauty regimes and diet.

1.  Can be used as a hair treatment to stimulate hair growth and rid dandruff.
2.  Can be used topically on the body and face as a moisturiser.  To promote
eyelash growth, mix coconut oil, pure vitamin E oil and pure cold pressed castor oil.
3. Works efficiently as a make-up remover.
4. If taken orally, it can improve immune function, kill intestinal parasites, support
healthy thyroid function, improve insulin levels, and improve the body's resistance
to fight off viruses and bacteria.
5. Can be used as a natural sunscreen if applied.  (SPF 4)
6. Increases your energy levels.
7. Improves overall brain function.
8.  Can reduce overall appetite if consumed regularly.
9.  Can be used in cooking.  Coconut Oil is a great substitute for butter.
10. Can be used in a variety of home remedies such as home-made deodorant,
home-made toothpaste and body scrub.


  1. Great tips :) love using this to take of my makeup.. Saves me the trouble of buying makeup wipes

  2. Thank you very much! I use it for absolutely everything. And you're right, why buy make-up remover or make-up wipes when coconut oil does the exact same thing? It iss completely natural without any harmful chemicals or toxins! :)
