  • To enjoy the full health benefits of coconut oil in cooking, I always select an unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin coconut oil.
  • I personally try to eat 3T of extra virgin coconut oil daily whether on my toast, in a smoothy or other coconut oil recipes.
  • I enjoy coconut oil benefits by using it as a moisturizer on my face and on my hands for healthy nails.

I give my dogs, Poppy & Gucci, a teaspoon of extra virgin coconut oil daily and it makes them so happy!

Now, I'm not a doctor and neither is my husband. Or, as a matter of fact, no one in my family is. I'm simply a mom who's done hours of research and experimentation with natural cold remedies on my family.

I really do hope that some of these natural remedies work for you as well, but if not, I'm sorry. If you have any hesitation, please visit your family physician with any concerns.
