Coconut Oil is Awesome!


Coconut oil doesn’t just smell nice (assuming you are cuckoo for coconut like I am), it works wonders on your body and around the house. It’s a super versatile oil and is readily available in grocery and health food stores (tbh I get mine at Costco!). The oil comes in either virgin form or refined form, both work and I explain the difference in the video. I’ve been using it around the house for various purposes for years now with great success and I am excited to share these great tips with you.

COMMENT QUESTION: What do you use coconut oil for?

  1. Melissa, Thank you for your videos! Really appreciate that you do your research & give great tips 🙂 !!

    About oil pulling: this ancient practice is incredibly beneficial to gum health by promoting good tissue & by removing undesirables (bacteria, oil-soluble bad actors). You may find more info from Ayurveda (oldest health system in the world) or on the web site , the mouthpiece of Ayurvedic doctor John Douillard. Another source might be Dr. Vasant Lad of Albuquerque School of Ayurveda ( the best Ay. Dr. in the USA).

    Anyhoo, good luck and thanks again for all your hard work! I’m the beneficiary 🙂
    Happy Holidays,


  2. Yes, I do oil pulling! And it’s a wonderful oral hygiene tool! It pulls out the nasty bugs, freshens your breath and whitens your teeth too. You will actually see the difference. And my friend who has had a root canal ages ago–and that tooth is now bothering him–it helps him deal with it. And when I get a toothache, it goes away after oil pulling.

    Moreover, for years now, I have used it to remove eye make-up. And just like K Ruppert below, I have never had problems with my eyes. Just shut your eyes when doing so and if you still get a little bit of it in your eye, it’s really not a problem, and won’t cause any harm. The blurriness goes away.

    I love your website. I always check on it. I’ve been learning so much from you guys. Kudos and more power!

  3. Many many awesome benefits of coconut oil just FYI on investing it as a benefit, it is not good for people with heart disease or coronary artery disease. So please don’t put it in your coffee etc. It is a beneficial fat but will clog arteries

  4. Yes! Use it as a pull. The medical world doesn’t like any natural way of healing as it keeps them from making money.
    I do however, use it as an eye make-up remover and have never had the problems you’ve encountered.
    Btw, I really enjoy your videos!

  5. I love using cocoanut oil. I even use one on my chickens to help if they get skin irritations and it also helps to get rid of mites on them! The chickens love to eat some, too. Just don’t overdo or they can get the runs pretty bad.

  6. I use coconut oil for pulling. It makes my toof feel just like after a cleaning at the dentist. I don’t know about any miracles happening as you said you’ve read. I do it once or twice a week.

    Of course the professional dentist/medical community won’t have anything to say about it. They and their puppet master dental product manufacturers don’t make any cash from it.

  7. We LOVE coconut oil! I have tried oil pulling & think it does a great job cleaning around my gums. My husband says he likes when I do it because it keeps me quiet for twenty minutes! Lol
