coconut oil

  1. 9 years ago

    I am blood type 0 and am having a bad reaction to Spectrum organic coconut oil applied externally. I notice coconuts are on the avoid list but coconut oil is on the beneficial list. Can you explain the difference?

    Hello Abby,

    Properly processed organic coconut oil is very good for cooking. Tropical Traditions is usually our source for all types of coconut oil. No financial connection.

    In your case I would be very leery of using coconut oil internally if you're having a reaction with it externally. You may simply be allergic to coconuts.

    You might try using a very good extra virgin olive oil for your skin as well as for cooking and salad dressings.

    Best of Health,
