I am such a Coconut Oil obsessed freak. It was one of those things that got really big, and I think I avoided it because I thought it was strange, and then I tried it and I can't turn back. Seriously, this is one of those products that can replace a number of products throughout your entire household. I recently was given the opportunity to try Thera Vita Paradise Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil can be used for so many different things, making it a truly innovative and versatile product. Not to mention, if you buy unrefined and virgin coconut oil (which the Thera Vita Paradise Coconut Oil is), you are getting coconut oil in its purest form, sans nasty chemicals and toxins that make it unnatural and ineffective. Most commonly this oil is used as a body moisturizer, hair conditioner/softener/repairer, skin moisturizer, eye make-up remover, diaper rash treatment, for oil pulling, in place of butter/margarine for cooking, and as an appetite suppressant. This list by no means encompasses the true variety of ailments this stuff can cure, it is simply a brief list. For the most part, this oil is odorless and tasteless (there is a slight hint of coconut smell and flavor, but it is very subtle), which makes it easy to apply or ingest without being turned off by a smell or taste. It is important to remember that coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, but turns into a liquid at 76˚ F.
As you can see, when I received the Thera Vita Paradise Coconut Oil, it was in solid form. When I dipped my finger into it, here is what happened:
Here, you can that the texture is much like soft butter or thick body cream. One of my favorite uses for Coconut Oil is oil pulling. This is where you swish the oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes once per day and then spit it out (not in the toilet or shower - trash can only!). It is said to rid your mouth and your body of bacteria, keeps your teeth and gums very healthy, and even whitens your teeth. For me personally, it does exactly that. I have very sensitive teeth and gums that bleed quite often. As soon as I started oil pulling, bleeding gums were no longer an issue, my sensitive areas were much less sensitive, and I noticed my teeth whitening almost immediately!
