Ingredients Used in Natural Creams/Balms/Ointments

Tonight we pay homage to Coconut Oil - What use to be considered so bad for you is one of the best things that you could do for yourself!  Coconut oil has 'medium chain fatty acids' making it higher in saturated fats than other oils.  However, that doesn't mean it's bad for you!!  On the contrary, this particular oil has been show to have antibacterial properties, as well as immune healing properties.  This oil has been recently studied extensively and is now being touted as one of the best oils you can get.  It is high in Vitamin's A and E, polyphenols, and antioxidants.  It is felt this is what gives it it's healing properties.  When they are talking of these oils and the healing properties though, they are referring to virgin coconut oil and not refined.  So, as long as you're not allergic to tree nuts, enjoy your coconut oil!!
