While in India, I partook in Panchakarma – an ancient Ayurvedic health treatment. It was here that I discovered the versatile uses of coconut oil!
Coconut oil is great for deep-conditioning your hair. According to a study, it “reduces the protein loss remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product.” Smooth this all-natural ingredient on your hair after your shower for soft, silky and healthy hair all day!
Coconut oil is moisturizing and gentle- making it perfect for baby lotion! Apply it topically and massage on your baby. It also contains lauric acid, which has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties- making it a great diaper cream!
Mothers with psoriasis or eczema may not be able to use their medications during pregnancy. Coconut oil’s moisturizing and anti-bacterial properties are a great all-natural alternative!
And finally, Bochy, my Shetland Sheepdog, loves coconut oil! Maybe he knows it’s great for his fur and digestion?
