The health benefits of this beautiful magical oil are just endless. They include, but are not limited to, hair care, skin care and conditioning, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, among others. The benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid along with palmitoleic acid, an essential fatty acid found in sebum. This means, like jojoba and macadamia oil, it has a natural affinity to the skin and is therefore easily absorbed and utilised. A tropical oil extracted from copra (the dried inner flesh of coconuts) with many delicious applications. It is protective and moisturising, anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and soothing. It helps to keep the skin soft and supple, brilliant for treating sensitive and damaged skin and amazing as a hair care product. Coconut Oil ticks all the health benefits boxes. Coconut Oil is Linda Hall's signature carrier oil.
