Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera)

Coconut palms grow happily in tropical regions like Indonesia, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Thanks to the hardiness of coconuts, they are very widely distributed and float on ocean currents far and wide. Coconut palms can also be found in Hawaii, Madagascar and the Carribean islands.

Coconut oil is deeply hydrating and may be helpful in reducing the symptoms of eczema.
