Coconut oil is a product that really doesn’t get enough credit for the wonders it can do for our health. The natural extract of the fruit, or drupe, can be used to moisturize the skin and even improve skin tone, it can be taken internally to help control cholesterol levels and boost the immune system, it can be used as an aromatherapy product for scented candles or a massage oil, and it also works as a great lotion to rejuvenate damaged hair.
Versatile Medicinal Properties
Coconut has so many medicinal applications it’s almost unfathomable for such a well-known fruit. When ingested it can help aid digestion and weight loss, lower high blood cholesterol levels and increase overall energy levels.
The high levels of medium-chain triglycerides are also thought to increase the production of ketone bodies in the blood, which can help reduce the risk of seizures. Furthermore the fatty acids in coconuts have been shown to improve brain function and reduce the symptoms in Alzheimer’s patients.
It's 100% Natural
Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil doesn't get more natural. Using this extraction process the coconuts are not exposed to any heat and thus the medicinal properties of the fruit, milk and essential oils remain intact.
Some other beauty products are chock-full full of chemicals whereas coconut oil is packed with antioxidants, fatty acids and antibacterial properties.
Our coconut oil products are not just 100% natural and organic, we are currently awaiting FDA approval to certify our products are edible to show our customers just how natural they are.
Health and Beauty Benefits
Along with its proven medicinal benefits, coconut oil is a perfect health and beauty product that should be on the bathroom shelves in all households. When applied externally virgin coconut oil can moisturize, heal broken or damaged skin, soothe burns, insect bits and rashes, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and improve skin pigmentation.
Coconut oil also has a natural sun protection factor of 4 (SPF4), and whilst this might not be the highest form of protection, it’s 100% natural. Commercially produced sunscreens have been shown to contain chemicals that could actually cause skin cancer – a rather bogus trick from brands manufacturing products that claim to do just the opposite. In addition, coconut oil also works great as an after sun care treatment.
With all these benefits that help your skin look younger, coconut oil really is an elixir that promotes anti-aging.
It Smells Delightful
There are not many people that don't like the smell of coconut oil; it's truly delightful tropical scent encompasses the room, which makes for a perfect aromatherapy product or air fresher. The uplifting fragrance also makes the products a pleasure to use as a simple skin moisturizer or sensual massage oil. When you use our massage candles not only do you get the benefits of the aromatherapy to soothe your soul and mind. You also get the benefit of using the oil that is created from the heat of the flaming wick, which turns the candle wax into oil to soothe the body too.
