Nature's Beauty. Coconut Oil.

Coconut oil is one of my recent obsessions. I use it for my hair, skin, and for cooking. Add a tablespoon to oatmeal instead of butter it's a delicious and healthy alternative.

Via Organic Facts: The health benefits of coconut oil include hair and skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestive and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care and bone strength.

Having lived in Sri Lanka for some years where coconut is part of a staple diet this needs a health warning. If you also eat the coconut roughage - then use the oil. Take the oil out from its context and you have a source of unhealthy high cholesterol inducing fat.
