Home Remedy #3: Coconut Oil

Coconut oil, or copra oil, is oil that has been extracted from mature coconut palm. It is very versatile as it has many applications such as in cooking, in cosmetics, as home remedies, and as biodiesel. Due to its high saturated fat content, it is resistant to becoming rancid as it is slow to oxidise and can last up to 6 months at 75F.

It can also be a great home remedy for eczema as it is a great moisturizer that has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Those with eczema may itch more and cause excoriations, which can result in a secondary infection. This makes the antimicrobial properties in coconut oil especially valuable.
