Adventures in Coconut Oil
After having worked in a commercial kitchen for 10 years, I was used to hot metal and hot oil burns (up to 300 degrees). They would hurt for a couple minutes, and leave a red mark. But this was a first! It hurt for a second, and then it didn't hurt anymore, it swelled up and turned white. I thought "uh oh, wonder what I just did to myself!"
So I applied ice. And researched. Second degree burn. Ick. It began to hurt again (yea!...found out if it doesn't hurt again, it's third degree!)
So I put my expeller pressed organic coconut oil on, and now the swelling is gone and my finger feels normal! Way better than any burn gel I've ever used!
Also, it's great to keep your complexion clear. And make your hair shiny. And your skin soft. And help you lose weight. Need I say more?
