Mum knows best!! Old wives tales or the best advice?

As a mum myself, I find myself more and more giving my daughter the advice my mum and grandmother
gave me when I was growing up…what really made me think about it was when my daughter said her friend had used coconut oil and wanted to try…
Now for years and years our family has used coconut oil in our hair, my mum always used it on me when I was younger and my hair is still thicker than ever at nearly 40!!
I did tell my daughter that I had already used it on her when she was younger as it’s been something that has always been used in our family.
So it’s something that has obviously become something that the younger generation are now doing as her friend told her about it! So something we have been using in our family and in our Indian culture for generations was now the latest ‘fad’!! Although at the time I used to find it a pain…walking around with greasy hair for hours while you let it soak into your hair, then having to really wash it well to get it all out, which as a teen with hair past her bum was not easy!!!
So I thought would share some good points of using coconut oil with you that I found out:
(A lot that surprised me!)
* Aids weight loss…try adding 1 teaspoon to your diet and work up to 4.
* eases digestion, avoid bloatedness.
* manage type 2 diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity.
* boosts metabolism.
* prevents sagging and wrinkles. Apply coconut oil directly to your skin to soften the appearance of fine lines or use it daily on your face and body for a healthy glow.
* and of course for your hair, the best natural conditioner, makes your hair healthy and shiny, repairs damaged hair, apply to your scalp for dandruff free hair, no matter how dry…
There are also so many other good qualities I didn’t know about, like helping immune system and against heart disease, the list goes on and on…never used it in food but think will start adding it to my diet as well as to my head!!
Thanks Mum!!
