Top Uses For Coconut Oil

Coconut oil isn’t just for cooking. We LOVE organic coconut oil as a raw material for our natural products, and here’s why.

Coconut oil has many healthful and healing benefits:

  • antibacterial
  • antifungal
  • antiviral

Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids (MCT’s) and is easily absorbed onto the skin. We use it as a base ingredient in most of our products.

The antibacterial properties make coconut oil an ideal toothpaste, plus it tastes really good! Coconut oil is known to kill the Streptococcus virus, making it a healthy oral care ingredient.

Coconut oil is an inexpensive and perfect ingredient for your skincare routine. Use it as a makeup remover, moisturizer, wound and acne healer.

Dry hair or frizz can be easily tamed by melting a teaspoon of coconut oil in your hands and smoothing it on your dry ends.

So be sure to keep some coconut oil in the medicine cabinet.
