Coconut oil is sweet to cook with, soothing to the skin and nerves, nourishing while stimulating energy. You can also use it topically for smooth, supple skin.

nourishes the nervous system

All nerves are coated in a fatty layer called the myelin sheath, which guides nerve impulses and insulates the neuron, preventing “short circuit” occurrences in our nervous system. Coconut oil restores myelin tissue providing smooth and calm neural conduction.

support and revive “burnout” people or conditions

Coconut oil has a cooling and nourishing effect that will rehabilitate people who are depleted, overly stressed, suffering from conditions of excess heat and dryness in the body and/or mind such as during menopause, old age, workaholics, heavy smokers, excessive alcohol consumption, underweight individuals and excessive aerobic training such as marathon runners.

good for the skin

during summer, while coconut oil is naturally liquid, it will protect your skin, help you retain a balanced level of moisture, and heal dry or damaged skin. Coconut oil cools excess heat in the skin, and helps alleviate discomfort caused by eczema, seborrhea, dry psoriasis, sunburn, and general dryness. Enjoy the benefits of this healthful and anti-aging oil during summer and your skin will look and feel younger, smoother and more radiant.

Supports Immunity 

Coconut oil has anti-viral and anti-microbial qualities, which have an adverse effect on fungus, bacteria, and yeast. Coconut oil also appears to have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, which ultimately supports your immune system and can help treat inflammatory conditions such as hyperthyroidism and autoimmune bowel diseases.

How to use

The quality of coconut oil is imperative. Use only extra virgin coconut oil that is unrefined. Refined or processed coconut oil is a health hazard.

Coconut oil has a lower oxidation point therefore it won’t become rancid quickly, making it an excellent choice for frying, baking, and safely heated to high temperatures.
