Coconut oil is a multi-purpose miracle food. You can consume it internally and wear it topically on your skin and hair. Consuming coconut oil internally keeps your thyroid healthy, supplies your body with good fats and stabilizes your metabolism. Wearing it topically hydrates your skin and hair and gives it that glow it needs.
Here are my recipe suggestions for using coconut oil.
