Have you eaten this? Do you cook with it? Do you make ointments and balms with coconut?
The magic of coconut:
Coconuts are often associated with protection and purification which are also functions of the oil on our skin. Coconuts are also associated with water, the Moon and are considered “feminine”. It is also used with fertility magic, and cleansing.
Coconut oil is very useful for the making of ointments, balms where we can then not only heal physical wounds, but coconut strengthens our confidence and inner resolve. Coconut can also heighten sexual allure.
Coconut oil is also a wonderful body moisturiser and massage oil – after a shower or bath, especially so after exfoliating. It leaves the skin silky smooth, and healthy. You can also try melting coconut oil and mix it thoroughly with pure aloe gel to make a wonderful light face moisturiser.
