5 things you didn't know about coconut oil
Coconut Oil (if it’s pure) smells like coconuts and has that warm almost sweet scent. Most of you are familiar with the scent from suntan lotion (well at least that is the kind I used when I was younger). Now it’s very trendy as coconut water. Why is it popular? It’s a great drink high in Vitamin E and it works wonders for dehydration.It provides shine to your skin and hair due to it’s high Vitamin E content.
Did you know that Coconut oil:
melts at 250 C (760 Fahrenheit)?
It’s smoking point is 1770 C (3500 Fahrenheit)
Ithelps with hair loss. In India it is used to keep hair black, prevent hair loss and also keeps it from going white (I think we all want to use it for that alone).
Has Anti-Aging and Antioxidant abilities due to it’s saturated fats including Capric, Capryllic Caproic & Acid Acid
You can use it to clean your face before using a cleanser.
A recipe I found while researching said it cleared head lice by combining coconut oil with anise spray.
Here is another recipe you can try to rehydrate dry skin.
Take 2 TBSp of oats and coconut butter (the solid form of the oil)
Place in a muslin bag
Heat for 30 seconds or less until it becomes a paste
Take the bag and roll or massage all over your body.
We love using it as a replacement for oil or non stick spray.
