Let’s talk about coconut oil. I started using coconut oil myself few years ago. I have been so impressed after reading about the health benefits of coconut oil, that I felt an obligation to use it in my daily routine.
Coconut oil has a long and highly respected reputation in many culture of the world.
Whenever I can, I love to incorporate some coconut oil into my recipes.
