Coconut Oil - Cocus Nucifera

Coconut oil comes from crushed copra, the dried meat of the kernels of the coconut. It is a white, semisolid, highly saturated fat widely used in the manufacture of baby soaps, shampoos, lotions and massage creams. It lathers readily and makes a fine cleanser.

Coconut is a highly nutritious food source being rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals but recently, coconut oil has been of particular interest and much research has been conducted on its health benefits, both when consumed and when applied topically.

It has a long tradition amongst Asian & Pacific populations of being a 'cure for all illnesses' and the coconut palm, termed 'The Tree Of Life' is a highly valued source of nutrition & medicine.  Modern scientific research is becoming increasingly more aware of this wonder oil's healing potential.

Coconut oil is very different to most other fats and is now known to contain about 50% lauric acid (found abundantly in human breast milk), a unique form of essential fatty acid (medium chain fatty acid or MCFA), which has a positive effect on health & the prevention of disease.  It has been described as 'the healthiest oil on earth'.  Also, the oil has reportedly been said to assist greatly in weight loss and 'The Coconut Diet' has many faithful followers.

The oil can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, from eczema to acne, nappy rash to wrinkles.  The oil is known to have great antioxidant properties as well as being known to kill bacteria, fungi and viruses to name a few*
