We’ve spoken before about the health benefits of coconut oil, and some of the products you can find it in. Now from comes an article with five uses for organic coconut oil. Organic coconut oil can be used when brushing your teeth, to help remove eye makeup, as moisturizer, and as a natural bug spray. But one of the most interesting uses for coconut oil is using it to combat Alzheimer’s and other dementia diseases.
