Coconut Oil and all its great uses!

Ok, so I am on the hunt for uses for coconut oil. Only I want skin care and or body uses.

I have been taking the coconut oil and cooking with it. I have also been applying it as a moisturizer. But I would really like to find a recipe to make a moisturizer that includes the coconut oil.

So I have all these recipes for other “green” all natural cleaning products (here).

So first if you want to read about the coconut oil and all it is good for go here.

Just remember that if you buy coconut oil to ingest, that you buy COLD PRESSED ORGANIC. Now cold pressed is done by expeller pressing, so don’t think because the container says expeller pressed that it is good. Its NOT. Regular expeller pressed uses heat. And heating will kill all your nutrients. So you will be taking it for nothing. (Read here about the differences.)
Just like when you heat, cook, steam your veggies. You kill your nutrients so your eating for nothing. Which is why you should eat your veggies raw, or better yet JUICE them.

Ok, so now back to what I want. I will be on the look out for a recipe for a moisturizer using coconut oil.

And I will also be de-icing my bird feeder because it is covered in ice.

So I will post as I find something.

If you want a quality coconut oil, go with the Tropical Traditions the Gold Label.
I am presently using the Nutiva or something like that brand. It is ok but not the best. It is the only brand at Whole Foods that was Cold Pressed, all the rest were regular expeller pressed with heat.

So good luck and read up. Later I will post some more facts about coconut oil. I just don’t have time right now. Maybe I will do some food uses next time.

Some Recipes!

    Hello 3CountryGirls!

    There are so many wondrous, healthy things coconut oil can do that it would take a really long comment to at least give this tropical oil justice.

    But just to show you how potent and safe coconut oil is in one sentence; Did you know that coconut oil can kill the HIV virus (AIDS)?

    Coconut oil can help us all live healthy fulfilling lives. šŸ™‚

    Just my two cents.

    Cheers,

    We've been using coconut oil (somewhat sparingly) for about a year now. One thing I do sometimes is add it to a smoothie in the blender. Chocolate flavored whey protein powder really tastes good with a little coconut oil mixed in. Add some crushed ice, and it makes a nice milkshake.
