Coconut oil, coconut oil or coconut butter is a vegetable oil that contains about 90% of fatty acids extracted by pressing the pulp or core of the coconuts (cocos nucifera). It is widely used in the cosmetics industry (for making soaps and creams) and also in the cuisine of some Asian countries.
Coconut oil can have medicinal properties and has not been proven to harm health. Although many experts say it can be harmful, there is some scientific evidence that its consumption by humans and animals improves health and helps prevent certain diseases.
There are two types of coconut oil: refined and extra virgin. The first is made from dry coconut, while the second is made from fresh coconut. Typically, coconut oil is found in a liquid state at high temperatures, only becoming solid and white below 25 degrees. The normal thing is that it will not spoil or become rancid even when stored for some time. Today it can be found for sale in liquid or capsule form .
Coconut oil is widely used in tropical countries, especially in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines, etc., which have good oil production. For some time, coconut oil was also popular in Western countries, such as the United States and Canada, but there was a strong propaganda campaign in the 1970s by the corn and soybean oil industry against the product. Coconut oil was considered harmful to the human body due to its saturated fat content until the last decade (2000), when people began to question the propaganda claims.
The benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintenance of cholesterol level, weight loss, stimulation of the immune system, digestion and regulation of metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, helps to improve the quality of teeth and bones. These oil advantages can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid and their respective properties, such as antimicrobials, antioxidants, antifungals, antibacterials and tranquilizers.
The vaginal dryness can be defined by insufficient lubrication in the cervix, which leads to wear and inflammation of the vaginal walls. It can be identified by a stinging, itching or burning sensation in the vagina, and even by pain or mild bleeding during sex. Vaginal dryness is usually caused by low levels of estrogen.
Although this condition can affect a woman at any point in life, it is more common during the menopause period due to the hormonal imbalances that accompany her during this transition. There are several home remedies to deal with this symptom, one of which is the use of coconut oil.
It can be ingested by taking a few spoons a day, or it can be used a few times a day, such as after a shower, before bed, to hydrate the vulvar mucosa, strengthen it and even heal cracks.
Coconut oil as a lubricant
Since model Miranda Kerr publicly stated that she used coconut oil at the time of sex, many people have started using the product in bedroom activities. They claim that the oil is free of harmful chemicals and synthetic preservatives that can irritate sensitive regions. Coconut oil is also an inexpensive lubricant, which can be found easily in markets and pharmacies. Oil lubricants also provide much more staying power than water-based lubricants for long sessions of pleasure.
However, is coconut oil really recommended as a lubricant? For some experts, the answer is no. Oil lubricants are not compatible with latex condoms, as they weaken them and can cause them to break. That is, if you use condoms in your sexual relations and want to use coconut oil, you should buy polyurethane condoms, which are much more expensive than latex condoms. In addition, coconut oil is an edogenic product (which clogs pores), which can cause irritation or other discomfort in some people.
In addition, if you intend to use it with your favorite erotic toys, you will destroy them: the silicone and other materials used in making the toys are not compatible with oil-based lubricants.
Coconut oil can be an interesting element in a sensual massage: it smells good, tastes good, is moisturizing and can be very well used by you and your partner. A sensual massage is the perfect way to create intimacy and relieve stress, and unlike other massage oils, it will not stain your sheets. Try mixing coconut oil with cocoa powder and honey for a delicious, healthy and edible body paint.
