What do YOU use virgin coconut oil for? Our previously disdained saturated fat-filled coconut oil is now pretty much accepted by even the most skeptical as a healthy oil. I’ve written about why coconut is actually very beneficial for you to eat. But it’s not just good for cooking.
The Many Uses of Coconut Oil
You can put it on your skin, your hair, your nails, eczema, psoriasis, you name it. It can be used as a massage oil, too, of course. It’s soothing and anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. WellnessMama.com even wrote a post called “7 Great Uses for Coconut Oil” that you should check out. (TMI ALERT) Honestly, before Paleo I used to get vaginal yeast infections all the time, and coconut oil was the only thing that would make my life livable when I had them. It’s incredibly soothing and healing. Plus, like I said, it’s a fantastic lubricant for your sex life!
Now, if you haven’t hastily abandoned your computer to go try it out yourself, I want to let you know that I stumbled upon a new coconut oil company called Edible Haven.
I’ve tried lots of brands of coconut oil, and this organic virgin coconut oil does not disappoint. It’s not overly “coconutty” if that’s what keeps you from coconut oil, and it imparts that amazing fluffy quality to scrambled eggs. Love that.
This company has a good heart, and cares a great deal about the health benefits of coconut oil. Go check ’em out.
