For years people have gone back and forth about whether or not Coconut oil is healthy for you. The critics will always be out there, but Big Sky Family Food believes that there is a lot of benefit in using coconut oil verses vegetable oil. Studies have shown that pure coconut oil contains a unique collection of healthy fatty acids, improves lipids, helps you loose weight, and coconut oil's structure often breaks down into Ketone bodies which help the brain and help fight against epilepsy. These are only a few of the reasons why using coconut oil is helpful and beneficial to your body.
Coconut oil is not only good for cooking, but for personal hygiene as well.
Coconut oil is a great conditioner, body lotion, cuticle softener, under-eye cream, frizz fighter, makeup remover, shaving cream, as well as having many other uses.
Lip balm is a great way to use coconut oil. Put a little coconut oil in an old contact container and you are set to have a healthy and portable solution to dry lips.
Make a batch of body scrub using coconut oil and give it out as healthy, inexpensive gifts for your girlfriends: "Mix a half cup of sea salt or sugar with an equal amount of melted coconut oil, and then use your hands to rub it over any rough patches of skin. The scrub moisturizes while removing dead skin cells." (Health.com)
