It is basically the oil extracted from coconuts without the application of heat and this extraction process is what makes virgin coconut oil different from regular coconut oil. The special process ensures that all the natural goodness is preserved and it can be used in many ways apart from cooking. Here are some of the ways in which you can benefit from it:
