There has been a lot of talk about the benefits of coconut oil in recent years. If you’re unsure what to do with it but really want to give it a try, here are a few tips on best uses for a pure coconut oil like Dr. Bronners’ Organic Virgin coconut oil which is also Fair Trade Certified…

Whole Kernel Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is expeller-pressed from fresh, carefully dried coconut kernels whose brown inner skins have been left on, resulting in a more aromatic, nuttier-tasting oil. Versatile and delicious, Whole Kernel Coconut Oil can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care.

Loved for body care uses, such as moisturizing hair and skin you can use coconut oil as part of your daily beauty routine!
