What Makes Virgin Coconut Oil a Powerful Home Remedy?

Virgin coconut oil is a rich source of lauric fatty acid, which has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activities. You can use coconut oil both internally as well as externally, say for example you can use coconut oil as hair oil and also use it for cooking.

The Benefits of Coconut Oil:

1. To reduce age spots:
Daily use of coconut oil can help diminish and remove sun spots as well as liver spots. This is because coconut oil has anti oxidant properties, which provide a shield against over exposure to the sun. Coconut oil also helps control the activity of free radicals which cause ageing. Massaging your skin everyday with coconut oil will help you avoid age spots and reduce the already visible ones.

2. Treat skin problems like plantar warts and athlete’s foot:
The anti-parasitic and anti-protozoal properties of coconut oil are helpful in curing skin problems like athlete’s foot and plantar warts. If you mix garlic with coconut oil then the combination is one of the best cures for this skin problem as garlic has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties.
–    Peel one bulb of garlic and crush the same.
–    Mix the crushed garlic in one tablespoon of coconut oil.

    I’m planning on doing an English Literature with Creative Writing undergraduate degree course, beginning in 2010. Initially, I just wanted to study English, but recently I’ve decided I would be better suited to English Literature with Creative Writing. Are there any universities that are especially good for English and creative writing? A lot of the universities I had previously been looking at don’t offer the course, and The Times University Guide only offers an English league table. All answers appreciated! (-:.

    It seems like the internet is where it’s at. I studied Computer Information and Film/Video at school, but I’m not too shabby with a keyboard when it comes to writing interesting stuff. Does anyone know of anyone (aside from Drudge and Arianna Huffington) who has been able to make a few bucks by blogging on a site from home?.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

But maybe you can include a a bit more in the way of written content so people could connect with it better. Youve got a great deal of wording for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
