Clear Up Acne, Remove Warts & 13 Other Surprising Uses for Coconut Oil

Ever since last Wednesday, when I sat down with Bruce Fife, the world’s leading expert on coconut oil, I’ve been trying on a few of his miraculous promises and discovering that I might just be as enamored with coconut oil as he is. After a one-hour interview, Dr. Fife had talked me into wanting to try coconut oil as a lotion, wart remover, energy enhancer, and all natural deodorant.

When I sat down with Dr. Fife, I’d been struggling to keep my skin clear. Having purchased an expensive anti-acne treatment from the store, I noticed my skin turning ashy and spotted, and wondered if I’d just have to get accustomed to the less-than-impressive look of it all. During our meeting, Dr. Fife mentioned the healing powers of the lauric acid in coconut oil as a potential way to clear up acne, so I went home and immediately started slathering it every night. One week later, nearly all of my little break-outs have cleared up, my skin is soft and elastic, and I feel like there’s a healthy glow there that I didn’t have last week.

Want to see if one of the many promises associate with coconut oil will work for you? Here’s a list of 13 surprising ways to use it to enhance your health and household, one scoop of oil at a time!

    When will Babble finally make a mobile/iPad friendly version of these pages? I give up half way through any that I still bother to click on because the slow and multiple page loads make it incredibly annoying to try and get through yet another slideshow.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours these days, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
