Coconut oil: the secret is out, and I am hooked! It’s the beauty product Miranda Kerr swears by, and this miracle oil holds the key to seriously incredible beauty benefits.
Coconut oil is good for you inside and out. It has high levels of lauric acid and natural fats that moisturise and nourish your skin and repair brittle, damaged hair. Pure coconut oil is a healthy, safe oil to use in cooking, with amazing antibacterial properties to help strengthen your immune system.
How do I use it?
On your body:
Coconut oil is perfect as a non-chemical makeup remover or hair conditioner and can be mixed it with coffee grounds or brown sugar for a super natural (and edible!) face scrub.
The subtle coconut flavour of the oil is perfect for cooking prawns, fish, veggies, stir frys and as a dressing on salads. It has a sweet, creamy texture, and can be mixed with cocoa butter and a dash of maple syrup for an enzyme-rich chocolatey dessert. Because it’s gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol free and vegan, it’s also great for people with allergies and food intolerances.
Where can I buy it?

You might be able to find coconut oil in your supermarket – just make sure it’s pure, unrefined and ideally organic.
