Coconut oil has many benefits; it is packed with nutrients and vitamins that make it extremely moisturising for the skin and hair.
As many of you may know, during a sickle cell crisis, patients are administered strong opioids such as morphine which tends to dry the skin and hair out. Using coconut oil during this period can help soothe the dryness and itchiness. – Especially in the freezing cold weather.
It can also be used all over the body and help with scars caused by the needles during blood tests and the ones used to administer IV fluids.
