produced from nuts, seeds, grains and beans. They are sometimes referred to as fixed oils because they are not as
volatile (easy to evaporate) as essential oils. Most essential oils are so strong that a little goes a long way.
oils should be diluted in carrier oils for use in massage. Vegetable Oils make an excellent base in which to dilute
essential oils for body care products. Our vegetable oils are 100% pure and natural. Avoid using mineral oils and
baby oils for massage.
Coconut oil has for centuries been used by traditional healers to soothe and cool the body and the mind. This product
is ideal as a body moisturizer and baby oil, massage oil and for aftersun relief. Coconut Oil is usually considered
the best carrier oil for massage oils. Because of its antioxidant properties, it actually feeds the skin. It prevents
free radical damage to the skin unlike vegetable oils. Researchers have clearly shown that the oil from coconuts,
a plant source, acts differently than the saturated fat from animal sources.
The oil from coconuts is unique in nature and provides many health benefits obtainable from no other source. This
edible oil has been found to aid the body in destroying dozens of harmful viruses including hepatitis C, herpes,
and HIV. Coconut oil has been called the healthiest dietary oil on earth. If you’re not using coconut oil for your
daily cooking and body care needs you’re missing out on one of nature’s most amazing health products. At one time
coconut oil received negative press in the US because of its high level of saturated fats.
However, modern research has shown that not all saturated fats are alike and that the fatty acids in coconut oil,
the medium chain triglycerides, do not raise serum cholesterol or contribute to heart disease, but are in fact very
healthy. Also, some negative studies done on coconut oil in the past was done on hydrogenated coconut oil, which
has been altered from its original form. Other studies have clearly shown that traditional Asian cultures that eat
significant amounts of coconut in their diet do not suffer from modern diseases seen in western cultures that promote
a Low-Fat diet. Much research on the nutritional and medicinal benefits on coconut oil has surfaced in recent years.
Much of that research has been done by Dr. Mary Enig. Dr. Enig has classified coconuts as a ”Functional Food,”
which provides health benefits over and beyond the basic nutrients.
She has specifically identified lauric acid as a key ingredient in coconut products:
”Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid,
which has the additional beneficial function of being formed into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin
is the Anti-Viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated
viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes
and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
Some studies have also shown some antimicrobial effects
of the free lauric acid.” As a ”Functional Food,” coconut oil is now being recognized by the medical community
as a powerful tool against immune diseases. Several studies have been done on its effectiveness, and much research
is currently being done on the incredible nutritional value of pure coconut oil.
