Coconut Oil: Good or Bad

Some people swear by coconut oil’s health and beauty benefits. However, other people purposely avoid consuming it. What about you?

Also, read about the risks of using coconut oil and other natural products on your face.

As for me, I love using coconut oil in many of my desserts. However, I believe that it should be used in moderation: like everything else. Check out my blog for some dessert ideas.

    • I’ve also read that coconut water can be used as a substitute for blood plasma, but I don’t know if it’s a myth.
      Coconut oil can be used to tame, condition and nourish hair; apparently it’s good against dandruff too (maybe the type that’s caused by dry skin). I’ve never used coconut oil on my hair, but in general I avoid applying oil on my scalp. Some people claim that it makes their hair fall, and others say that these are hairs that are supposed to fall anyway.

    • Thanks for sharing your opinion! I try to eat it in moderation, but I don’t use it much for beauty purposes. I don’t know why, but I always feel guilty when I use something edible for my skin. It’s crazy, since store-bought products can be more expensive or harmful.

  2. My most frequent use for cooking with coconut oil is when making popcorn. It has a high smoking point and is very good for popcorn. I don’t buy chips and crackers much but do make popcorn in my wok relatively often. I use olive oil most frequently for cooking.
