Coconut oil is pretty amazing stuff. If you are not already a fan, it is time to pick up a jar and like me, use it as your go-to treatment for yourself and your baby.

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a powerful anti-microbial, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory fatty acid which has a potent healing and soothing effects. It has a lovely subtle tropical fragrance and is easily absorbed into the skin.

Chuck away those fancy packaged mum and baby skin care projects and invest in a large jar of organic virgin coconut oil. I promise you will fall in love with it and save heaps of cash in the process.
