Benefits of Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has become the go-to health product from the kitchen cupboard, to the bathroom cabinet because, well, the secret is out; it has beyond powerful therapeutic properties for your health.
The use of oil for oral health dates back as far as 3,000 years, to ancient Asian healing practices used in Ayurvedic medicine. Traditionally oil would be swished around the mouth for up to 20 minutes to cleanse and purify, in a practice known as 'oil pulling'.
Oil pulling works by reducing the amount of bacteria in your mouth, having some bacteria in your mouth is good, however too much and it can form a biofilm on the teeth, known as plaque. Too much plaque can cause bad breath, yellow teeth, gum inflammation, sensitive teeth, gingivitis and cavities.
Today the benefits of oil pulling have not quite made it into mainstream dental health yet, but KOHLE is on a mission to change that and just wait until you hear what this natural elixir can do for your skin.
Unlike using Coconut Oil orally, the benefits of applying it to the skin are a bit more wide-spread but not that many people know why (probably because there’s a bit of science involved, bear with us).
Firstly, because it can be easily absorbed, Coconut Oil helps eliminate toxins from pollution, from chemicals in facial products, from dirt and dust, from everyday life really, to leave your skin soft and glowing.
The fats within coconut oil have strong disinfectant properties, meaning they can protect from infection and if that wasn’t enough they attract protein molecules, which help repair and replace the collagen layers in the skin. Making your skin supple and youthful.
Lastly (technically we could keep talking about the amazingness of coconut oil all day, but we’ll leave it here), Coconut Oil contains Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, preventing premature ageing and wrinkles. Making your skin smooth and radiant.
A whiter smile, improved oral health, younger looking, radiant skin… it’s hard not to see why KOHLE loves Coconut Oil, head to our shop check out our collection of Coconut Oil blended products.
