Top 6 Reasons to Love Coconut Oil

1 2 3

Coconut oil is a truly amazing and wholly natural product. But not any coconut oil will do. There are some synthetic ones on the market, but if you are going to go nutty for coconuts- do it right with Virgin or Cold Pressed Coconut Oil!



So why is coconut oil so good for you? There are numerous health benefits, and the great thing about coconut oil is that it is extremely versatile. Its use is not just limited to actual food; you can use it topically on your body and receive benefits also.

Here are the top 6 reasons to love coconut oil!

  • Coconut oil is a medium-chain fatty acid. As we know, there are fats, but some fats are very good for you. So although this oil is high in saturated fats- it is the good type! The fatty acids present in coconut oil are mostly medium-chain and so they are utilized by the body far more efficiently for energy rather than being stored as fat.

  • As mentioned earlier, coconut oil is supremely versatile. As a food, it can be used in cooking, baking, or added to your coffee or smoothie. As a body product, you can use it as a moisturizer for your skin; you can also smooth out frizzy hair with just a touch of coconut oil to add sleekness, shine, as well as nourishment!

  • It’s so good for you: coconut oil can be classed as a superfood! It can help to manage your weight, or act as a type of fat-burner, raise levels of HDL cholesterol (that’s the good one!), and improve your heart health. Studies are ongoing about the positive potential effects of coconut oil on brain health and in stabilizing degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

  • Coconut oil is a natural anti-inflammatory. As it is such a great anti-inflammatory, it may help with digestive function or just generally help to ease inflammation within the body.

  • Coconut oil is also anti-fungal, and anti-viral. It can be used to help keep your teeth clean/whiter and also help to protect your oral health. Have you noticed how many whitening kinds of toothpaste include coconut oil as an ingredient?!

  • Coconut oil is also anti-microbial, and although it is not measurable, it protects the skin from the damaging rays of the sun.  It is also considered a “dry oil” and absorbs quickly into the skin.


There is little doubt that Coconut Oil is one of nature’s healing blessings. There are many more reasons to love coconut oil. Hawaiian Body Products includes it as an ingredient in a number of their wellbeing products. Hawaiian Body Products uses Organic Coconut Oil in most of their premium artisan crafted beauty products!
