I recommend coconut oil for everyone, because it is one of the most versatile products I have found that is organic. I use it as a makeup remover, a moisturizer, hair treatment, lip balm, bath soak, and I even use it in cooking. It is inexpensive and can be found at any natural food store. A little tiny bit goes a long way, it is very affordable and will last you a long time. I recommend coconut oil to everyone !! :)
It is great for green students on the student budget.
I couldn't agree with you more Jocelyn! I recently rubbed it on a skin rash I had on my forehead and it cleared it right up. I love coating veggies & chickpeas in coconut oil and baking them on a cookie sheet for 40 mins. Mmm! Tastes like candy! Just make sure you don't cook them over 325 degrees as it spoils above that temp.
Oh I didn't know that it spoiled past that temperature! Thanks for the tip, I guess you learn something new everyday :) I haven't baked with it in the oven like that, just in a pan, but I will have to try that, do you have any particular recipe that you especially like? and what temperature do you cook it at when you bake your veggies and chickpeas?
I love it on popcorn too! can't wait to try it on the veggies and chickpeas. Im glad you told me about the deodorant I would have never thought to use it as a deodorant! This is great because sometimes in the summer months my underarms get raw from shaving and sweating so using the coconut oil will be really helpful :) thanks for the tip !
This is a great article for those that are worried that coconut oil is bad for you....really, I don't know why researchers keep saying that natural, plant-based foods like avocados and coconut oil are bad for you and they don't say that milk, eggs, and meat are bad for you! Crazyness! Moderation is the key.
