Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information about the Uses and Health Benefits of Coconut Oil.
There are many practices for coconuts, but coconut oil has a vast repertoire of usages. We at Organic Gurlz Gardens know to always keep some handy. You may never know when you will need coconut oil!
Why make it in the first place:
Coconut oil has many advantages; such as the following:
When the cold and flu seasons swing around, coconuts are the treat-to-eat! We at Organic Gurlz Gardens have found that even if you eat a tablespoon of coconut oil every day, you are lowering the risk of a weaker immune system.
Coconut oil acts as a “Stomach filler”. Eating half of a healthy sized meal worth of coconut makes your stomach translate into feeling full.
**Dieters, Take note! **
This is a common practice at Organic Gurlz Gardens.
Keep your hair beautiful and moisturized with applying coconut oil to your scalp as a part of a weekly routine. This may assist with repelling lice and make a flourishing “land” of hair.
The fatty acid in Coconut oil turns into ketones which can slow down and/or prevent seizures from occurring. (A fatty acid that works against bad fat!)
Yep, you can make sun screen out of coconut oil. Just lather some on before heading out to the beach. It is a natural approach and just as effective.
Your skin will thank you later!
How to make this renowned coconut oil:
Since I have probably “talked” you into using this coconut oil, you might as well know how to make it.
It is cheaper than going to the store and purchasing a tiny container.
We at Organic Gurlz Gardens have a little dish of coconut oil on our kitchen table just like salt and pepper.
My Mommy’s (Becca pictured right) homemade coconut oil recipe:
You will need:
- High Powered Blender
- 1 whole coconut
- 1/2 cup of water
Make a hole in the top of coconut and then drain out the coconut milk into a glass. Set aside (You will not be needing the milk for this recipe.)
Cut the coconut in half. Shred coconut “meat” from the shell and place onto cookie sheet.
Set tray aside.
- Place sauce pan onto stove and add the water. Bring to water to boil, then cut the heat.
- After the water is boiled, pour into medium sized bowl and wait 3-5 minutes. Place the coconut meat inside bowl and let sit for about 10-15 minutes. (This softens the meat.)
- Meaning while, ready the blender. After 15 minutes has passed, pour contents of bowl into blender.
- Blend for about 4-7 minutes. You will know when the oil is done when the consistency is buttery.
