Coconut Oil Uses for Health and Wellness

Yes. After years of hearing how bad it is for you, and far fewer months of hearing, "no it's isn't bad for you at all," I decided to try it. So far, I've only used it for cooking. As a substitute for olive oil or added to my bread dough.

Thanks to this article, I now have many other uses to try. Thanks Katie.

Mira, Thanks for pinning and yes it is amazing.

katiem2 on 11/02/2018

Mira, I just heard on the news this morning that coconut oil is better protection as a bug repellent that deet. Coconut oil works just as well but last much longer as compared to deet which is said to last hours while coconut oil last days, I'm guessing that once you bathe the protection is gone so not sure how they determined days.

Mira on 10/30/2018

This is pretty amazing. I use it regularly in cooking but didn't know it could fight H. pylori as well. I'll try some gelules/softgels for that combined with other natural remedies. Pinning them

Aspirin isn't officially a blood thinner .It is a consequence of a painkiller. He had a half aspirin tablet every two days and warfrin every day. But when I was going to put him on Cod Liver Oils he asked the doctor and the doctor said no as oils thin the blood. People on Warfrin are advised to reduce not exclude broccoli and asparagus intake too.
