When massage alone can do so much good for the body, then think what it can do if it is done with an oil like coconut oil. If you do your research, then you will find that there is hardly any oil that can match the quality of coconut oil when it comes to massage. Let’s look at some more specific reasons….
First of all, the presence of such a high concentration of medium-chain fatty acids (saturated fats) makes it a very stable oil. So, when you rub coconut massage oil on your skin and leave it for a few hours, you don’t need to worry that it will become rancid and damage your skin or invite infections.
Second, the presence of powerful anti-microbial agents like capric acid and lauric acid in coconut oil do not let microbes infect your skin.
Third, the layer of such a stable oil full of saturated fats on the skin does not let moisture escape, thus protecting it from drying and cracking.
Fourth, coconut oil is rich in vitamin-E, your skin’s best friend. It keeps your skin rejuvenated, young, and healthy.
Fifth, coconut massage oil is gifted with a lot of antioxidants, so it can keep you looking young even in your seventies. These antioxidants do not let the skin wrinkle and also protects it from other adverse affects of aging, like sagging, peeling, and discoloration.
Sixth, coconut oil penetrates the skin very easily while massaging and can serve very well if used as a carrier oil for other herbal extracts, essential oils, or medicines.
Last but not the least, the fragrance of coconut oil is unmatched. It is so earthy and soothing that it keeps you fresh all day and eliminates body odor.
