What is Co­conut Oil?

Modern Pioneer - - Varnish -

Co­conut oil is ex­tracted from the en­dosperm, or the meat, of the co­conut. It’s high in sat­u­rated fat and can be used for many pur­poses: cook­ing, sea­son­ing cast-iron cook­ware, rem­iner­al­iz­ing and whiten­ing teeth, mois­tur­iz­ing skin, de­odor­iz­ing, etc. It can also be used as a lowspf sun­screen, lip balm, as an in­gre­di­ent in sham­poo, to avoid stretch marks dur­ing preg­nancy, on mos­quito bites and so on. Its high-fat con­tent and edi­bil­ity make it truly ver­sa­tile. Don’t overuse it when cook­ing, though, as it will sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the sat­u­rated fat con­tent of your food.

Co­conut oil is good and healthy for hard­wood be­cause it’s nat­u­ral. Be­cause it’s high in sat­u­rated fat, it acts as a pro­tec­tive layer for hard­wood. It also has a nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring sheen, giv­ing your floor a new and shiny ap­pear­ance.
