The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
I am a huge fan of coconut and using coconut oil. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about coconut oil and its affects on the body.

This oil actually helps increase the bodies metabolism.
asthma, bruises, burns, colds, constipation, cough, dandruff, earache, fever, flu, nausea, rash, sore throat, swelling, upset stomach, ulcers, yeast. Coconut oil has been described as one of the healthiest oils in the world.
If you want to learn even more, one of my favourite doctors, Dr. Mercola, has a great little video clip about the benefits of this oil.
