Why I Keep Coconut Oil in Every Room, And You Should Too!

Coconut oil is nature’s little miracle. Known for its fat burning and cardiovascular benefits as well as its antifungal and antibacterial properties, pretty much everyone can benefit from its use. What many people don’t know, however, is that coconut oil’s utility extends far beyond the kitchen. But it does. In fact, here are 20 of my favorite reasons you need coconut oil handy at all times. These reasons are compliments of an article posted on Tip Hero entitled, “42 Reasons Why You Need Coconut Oil in Your Pantry at All Times.” View the full article here.

It helps to reduce the cost of household and personal care products and protects me and my family from exposure to unnecessary toxins and chemicals. I hope that you find it just as useful as I do.
