Benefits of coconut oil

Living in a tropical country, I am not only familiar with coconut, but I also love the water and meat from fresh, young coconut!

My grandmother used to prepare coconut oil from home.  She would grate the coconut, mix a little water and squeeze the mixture until she would have a white liquid.  The mixture is strained using cheese cloth. The white liquid is the coconut milk. The coconut milk is then placed in a pot and left to simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring often. The white color now changes into a golden-colored oil — the coconut oil.

Grandma used the coconut oil for cooking. She also used it as moisturiser for her skin, push her cuticles and hot oil for her hair. She also used it for squeaky doors and as a quick rub on her dry, antique wood furnitures! She passed on at 92 years old and never had any age spots on her skin, had thick and smooth gray hair and you guessed it — never had squeaky doors!
