coconut oil, Olive oil and Shea Butter

Some Highlights for those Oil

Coconut Oils
There is anecdotal evidence that application of non-hydrogenated, organic, expeller pressed coconut oil is an effective treatment for keratosis pilaris (follicular keratosis). Anecdotal reports recommend liberal application of coconut oil to affected areas after showering.

Olive Oil
It does have demulcent properties, and mild laxative properties, acting as a stool softener. It is also used at room temperature as an ear wax softener. Olive oil is also a potent blocker of intestinal contractions, and can be used to treat excessive Borborygmus.

Oleocanthal from olive oil is a non-selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase (COX) similar to classical NSAIDs like ibuprofen. It has been suggested that long-term consumption of small quantities of this compound from olive oil may be responsible in part for the low incidence of heart disease associated with a Mediterranean diet.

Shea Butter
natural fat extracted from the seed of the African shea tree by crushing and boiling.
Shea butter has been claimed to be effective treatment for the following conditions: fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, severely dry skin, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretchmarks, wrinkles, and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis.
