Pattu Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is now widely used in cooking because unlike other oils, it is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage.

But what others do not know is that aside from cooking, coconut oil has many other uses. We recommend keeping a tub of VCO as a staple in the house for the following:

1. Hair treatment

Coconut oil is one of the best natural treatments for your hair. It is widely used as a hair conditioner in India, Asia, South America and Africa. Its antifungal agents can give you a healthier scalp, which supports hair growth. It is also rich in antioxidants, which helps prevent hair fall.

For an effective treatment, using your fingertips, massage scalp and hair from root to tips. Cover your head with a shower cap for at least two hours and shampoo your hair as you normally would.

2. Massage oil

VCO can easily be absorbed by the body through the skin. Another advantage is that it doesn’t stain clothes, which makes it an ideal massage oil for therapists.

3. Skin moisturizer

The fatty acids in virgin coconut oil helps moisturize the skin by restoring damaged skin cells. It doesn’t clog the pores, which makes it an ideal makeup remover. VCO also helps relieve skin eczema.

4. Immune system booster

The lauric acid and caprylic acid are antiviral properties found in virgin coconut oil. Simply take one teaspoon of coconut oil daily to help fight and prevent illnesses. VCO is also beneficial for the digestive track, which contributes to overall health because a healthy gut absorbs more essential nutrients. 

Caprylic acid helps control yeast population, while lauric acid strengthens the immune system to fight against candida. For an effective treatment, orally take three to five tablespoons of VCO every day by mixing it in food or smoothies. It is also recommended that one applies the oil to affected areas at least thrice daily.

6. Blood pressure regulator

Coconut oil contains around 50% of lauric acid, which helps prevent many heart problems. It also regulates cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and is an ideal supplement for weight loss.

7. Diaper cream salve

Baby skin is very sensitive, which is why VCO is a great remedy for diaper rash since it doesn’t contain any chemicals just like other diaper rash creams. To use on your baby, simply wash the bum area with water, pat dry and apply coconut oil to the affected areas.
