Super busy lives mean many of us shy away from cooking. Juggling to-do lists, demanding jobs, children’s busy schedules and perhaps less-than-stellar skills in the kitchen, cooking seems to slide way down on our list of priorities.

Cinnamon

The Benefits of Coconut Oil

coconutCoconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.” Its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health. This includes fat loss, better brain function and various other amazing benefits.

  • Coconut oil contains a lot of medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently and can have therapeutic effects on several brain disorders.
  • The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy expenditure by as much as 5%, potentially leading to significant weight loss over the long term.
  • The fatty acids and breakdown products in coconut oil can kill harmful pathogens, potentially helping to prevent infections.
  • The fatty acids in coconut oil can significantly reduce appetite, which may positively affect body weight over the long term.
  • The MCTs in coconut oil can increase blood concentration of ketone bodies, which can help reduce seizures in epileptic children.
  • Studies in both humans and rats show that coconut oil improves important risk factors like Total, LDL and HDL cholesterol, which may translate to a reduced risk of heart disease.
  • Studies show that the fatty acids in coconut oil can increase blood levels of ketone bodies, supplying energy for the brain cells of Alzheimer’s patients and relieving symptoms.

Carrier Oils

EssentialOiland carrierCarrier Oils are used with Essential oils. Essential oils in their pure form are not meant to be applied directly to the skin.

They are diluted as follows:

Use a carrier oil  with an Essential oil at a rate of 2 to 5 drops to a tsp (5ml) of carrier oil.

Example: 2oz of carrier oil = 60ml so you would need 12 to 20 drops of essential oil to the 2oz bottle. If you were using 2 types of essential oil you would 10 drops of each kind.

Our essential oils come in 5ml (about 100 drops). This diluted with a carrier oil is enough to make several batches of applyable oil.
