Coconut oil has some really amazing benefits! It's like a super food. It has so many benefits that a person can't even begin to name all of them. It's completely natural, too. You can buy a jar and use it for almost everything! Such as cooking, baking, personal care and more.

Here a few benefits of coconut oil:

1. Anti-bacterial

2. Nontoxic to people and humans

3. Has no negative side effects

What kind of coconut oil to get:

The best coconut oil to get is un-refined. The reason why is because it hasn't been processed. But, if you're using it in baking, keep in mind it leave leave a slight coconut taste! Before I realized this, I used it in baking chocolate cookies and that didn't turn out too well. So, now I usually use organic olive oil or peanut oil in baking. (Unless I want it to have a coconut taste.)
