Often acne prone skin is actually too dry, which signals your glands to produce more oil and clogs the pores.

Topical application.

87. Athletes Foot

88. Toenail Fungus

Although I don’t support circumcision, coconut oil may help with healing.

Place a few drops of coconut and garlic oil inside the ear twice daily for relief from pain. Also, coconut oil fights the infection itself. (26)

Just mix equal parts coconut oil and baking soda into a paste. Apply to the “sticky” area and let it set for a minute. Then scrub off with an old toothbrush or the scrubby side of a sponge.

118. Insect repellent

Coconut oil can be used as one of the fats in soap.
