The Wonders of Coconut Oil

We love coconuts, coconut milk, and coconut oil.

We love coconut in all forms – fresh coconut meat, coconut milk, and coconut oil.

Once upon a time, coconut oil was lumped in with other saturated fats and deemed bad for us, but is now the darling of Paleo/Primal enthusiasts, vegans, and anyone else moving toward a cleaner, more natural life. Coconut oil has multiple benefits when taken internally.  As an ingredient in snacks, meals, or drinks, its properties cover many bases.  Coconut oil’s medium chain fatty acids are anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and said to fight cancer, digestive issues, various infections, stress, and migraines. This powerhouse is also reported to aid in weight loss.  A member of the Noir Naturals family is a huge coconut oil fan and adds it to her daily coffee and smoothies and notices a reduction in the severity of her migraines.  And this was before Dr. Oz ran a feature on it last season.

At Noir Naturals, we focus on the external benefits of coconut oil as well.  Coconut oil is a traditional ingredient in skin and hair products.  It moisturizes the skin without leaving a greasy residue and has anti-aging properties.  It helps prevent flaking skin which makes ideal for minimizing the effects of psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis while helping skin heal.  Coconut oil’s Lauric Acid, Vitamin E, and proteins are the magical components.  We use it in our goat’s milk and coconut milk vegan soaps,  Dead Sea Salt Body Scrubs, and body butters.  A change from the standard commercial products to our natural bath and beauty collection will produce results!  Just look at what our customers have to say.

Adding coconut oil to the menu and beauty regimen is another way we go back to simpler, more natural times.  Join us!  Coconut oil is solid at cooler temperatures and liquefies when warm.  It adds a coconut flavor when used in food, but the type of oil and other ingredients used determines the intensity of the flavor.  Try a little in place of butter in pie crust for a chocolate pecan pie or in biscuits for a weekend breakfast.  Or try popping popcorn with it.  Melt the oil, pop the popcorn, and top it with a little Sea Salt.

About Noir Naturals

The idea behind Noir Naturals stems from the good ole days as some would say it. We often sit back and remember the days when we were children playing outside all day. Dusk would be approaching and our mothers and grandmothers would call us inside. When inside an old black and white classic of Andy Griffith would be playing on television. Granny would tell us to run out to the garden, get a tomato and bring it in. She’d slice it up and we’d have it for dinner. The memories of those days still permeate our minds and it symbolizes a simple, safe, natural time in our lives. In those days one could leave the doors unlocked at night without worry. Our great grandmothers churned butter, made and cut soap for use at home. That was the norm back then. While Netflix and others do a great job of listing Noir movies for us to relive some of the ole days, we wanted to continue those days in more of a practical way today. In the ole days things were natural and not made with chemicals. We therefore wanted to go back to those times and make products that are not only good for your skin and body, but are also pure, natural, simple and safe, just as the ole days were. Our products are paraben free, not tested on animals and do not contain any artificial dyes or pigments. We invite you to go back in times with us to those good ole days, with our Noir Naturals products, to experience Yesterday Once More.
