6 natural and healthy uses of coconut oil

coconut oil for skin care

(Healingtalks) If you have dried out skin, just got a paper cut, or have an ache in your stomach, coconut oil may be just the right remedy. Here are some of its great benefits. Internally, coconut oil should be used in moderation. We need a certain amount of  healthy saturated fats to build cell membranes. More than you need of something good is not necessarily better. Being on a low fat diet is equally important and thus I recommend no more than between a teaspoon to a tablespoon at any given time.

Skin Conditioner

Coconut oil offers a natural moisturizer for all kinds of skin types and conditions. Coconut  fat will soften wrinkles and help skin problems like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema.For a great skin healing remedy, see  great honey and coconut oil moisturizer.

Reduce Stress

Applying coconut oil to your forehead can help relieve mental fatigue, massaging it in gently. The natural aroma and feel of coconuts is soothing to help relieve stress.

Improve Digestion

Coconut oil’s saturated fats are anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This helps as much your stomach lining as your skin. It relieves irritable bowel syndrome and helps  in the absorption of many nutrients. For another recipe, try this vegan delight  coconut creamed spinach recipe.

Increase Fitness

Coconut oil can help stimulate metabolism, improve hormone functions (hormones as well as cell membranes require healthy fats) and thus increase your energy levels.

Skin Healing

When applied to cuts, coconut oil forms a layer of protection for a wound, just as it does for cell membranes, and to repel dust, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Coconut oil thereby aides the healing process for cuts, bruises and other damage to your skin cells.

Hair Conditioner

Coconut oil is a common ingredient in hair products. It especially helps with dry skin and dandruff.  So make your own hair conditioner using this recipe: coconut oil hair conditioning recipe.
