How To Make Coconut Oil at Home; Health Benefits

Coconut oil benefits are aplenty. If you can make coconut oil at home, nothing better than that!

Here you will learn not only benefits of coconut oil, but also how to make homemade coconut oil.


I was never an admirer of coconut unless I realized how beneficial it was for overall health. There was a time I would not touch coconut and hated its very taste.



Now, times have changed and I am experimenting with coconut in the kitchen ever since I came across the umpteen coconut benefits.

In fact, every single part of coconut can be put to use. There are plenty of coconut oil uses that will leave you surprised.

Plastic Pollution: Demanding Ban on Plastic

I am saddened and distressed at the sight of hundreds of thousands of girls and their parents who are forced to suffer at the hands of the greedy groom family. If the girl's parents fail to fulfil their greed, the girl is either forced to commit suicide or killed. Yes, in both ways the girl is doomed.

Do we girls deserve this treatment?
With a majority of the population in India below the poverty line, parents find it hard to fulfil demands of groom's family, since this is not just about bridal gifts, but more about forced demands from the groom and his family. In a majority of the cases, dowry is the root cause of the problem of female feticide. Would you disagree?

Since parents of the girl know they would be forced to submit to the greed of t…
