The Summery Scent of Coconut

S’mores, salty ocean breezes, veggie burgers on the grill — what’s the smell you associate the most with summer?

The sweet, sexy scent of coconut tanning oil slathered on beach bodies is my signal that summer has arrived. Could there be anything better? Every time a whiff of delicious coconut oil wafts through the air, I feel like I’ve been magically transported to an exotic spot with swaying palm trees, sweet ocean waves and fruit-filled cocktails…

Since we’re discussing coconuts, how could I not list the beautiful health benefits of coconut water, milk and meat? Here they are:

  • Coconut meat helps prevent obesity by being high in fiber
  • All coconut products improve heart health
  • Coconut has a subtle sweetness with a low glycemic index
  • All coconut products help reduce a craving for sweetness
  • Milk, oil and water help improve digestion
  • Helps give a quick energy boost
  • Coconut oil is a smooth, sexy, natural massage oil
  • Coconut fat is good for you.
  • Coconut oil can be used on skin and hair to soften and moisturize
  • Coconut oil is proven to be antiviral, antifungal and anti-bacterial (and possibly anti-aging too!)
  • All coconut products give a boost to the immune system
