Coconut oil has a number of uses, such as an emollient for skin and hair where it is particularly suited to oily skin. Refined coconut is a white solid at room temperature, it will turn to a liquid state in warm temperatures and can be returned to a solid state by placing in the refrigerator. The refined oil is generally preferred for use in hair and skin products as it has less odour and is a purer white colour than virgin coconut.
Coconut oil is very versatile and can be used in a great range of home-made cosmetic products: deodorant bars, balms, creams and lotions, frizz treatment, body scrubs, hair conditioner. It is also very effective as a natural make-up remover and will leave the skin soft and supple without being greasy.All vegetable oils & fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon). Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil. Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
