Coconut Oil: The Modern Day ‘Tussin

Coconut oil is more than just an oil from a tropical drupe.  It’s a gift.  A multitalented healing modality that morphs with master and intention and has changed my life.  Before discovering the multiple food allergies I have, I was miserable and living in symptoms I knew not what from.

Desperate to feel better, I researched like a feign until I came across the forum  It was there that I read other people’s experiences with symptoms similar to my own and what they did to aide in healing (both with and without western medicine).  Many SWORE by VIRGIN coconut oil! And to my surprise, I discovered not only does coconut oil have anti inflammatory properties, it is also a natural antibiotic amongst other things. Immediately I decided to start taking it internally in my smoothies and by the teaspoon at varying times throughout the day.

While it did not cure my now known allergies, I know that everything had to happen EXACTLY as it did to make me WANT to research the benefits further. Hence, it was just the beginning of my romance with this oil!

Below you’ll find a list of all the ways coconut oil benefits my life today:

  • makeup remover
  • facial moisturizer
  • tanning oil
  • body moisturizer (just before leaving the shower so it’s a thin layer and absorbs into the skin)
  • hair protectant prior to bleaching
  • hair moisturizer post bleaching
  • post waxing wax remover
  • massage oil
  • sexual lubricant
  • stretch mark body oil while pregnant (i don’t have ANY)
  • infant moisturizer
  • cooking oil
  • as an ingredient in my natural lip balm recipe

Feel free to comment with the ways you may use it, as well as with any questions you may have for me. This ish is MAGICK!



  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

  2. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.

    Awesome blog!

  3. This is the perfect blog for everyone who wants to understand this topic.
    You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic which has been written about for decades.
    Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  4. Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Looking through this
    article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I will send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he’ll have a good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  5. Hi, I do believe this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I may revisit yet again since i have book-marked
