We love coconuts, 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.
