I want to share about another wonder of coconut oil. I discovered that applying coconut oil to a cut immediately heals the cut. Absolutely amazing. A few days ago, I had two small, paperlike cuts with one bleeding to where I needed to use a bandaid. I applied coconut oil on the cut and covered up the cut with the bandaid. Two days later, the cut without the application of coconut oil still hurt while the other cut that was bleeding was completely healed. I immediately applied coconut oil on the hurt area and it healed immediately. Then two days ago, I was cooking dinner for 100 and I accidentally cut into my finger, cutting the nail and bleeding. I immediately applied the coconut oil and used a bandaid. This was a rather deep cut. The next day, I could still feel the pain. However, two days later, it completely healed. It's an absolute miracle.

2 weeks ago I cut my middle finger right in the inside of my middle digit. It was very deep and bleed for over 24 hours. I knew I didn't hit a main artery but it was just flowing out at a steady rate not squirting. I wrapped it up with some non-stick gauze and tape and the next morning I washed off most of the blood and put some coconut oil over the wound, I wasn't too sure if it would help due to the fact that blood was till coming out of the cut but not as fast as the night before. I took off the bandage again that night and the bleeding has stopped so I put some ACV on a paper towel and wiped my finger down and put the coconut oil back on the wound and continued to change the bandage and reapply the coconut oil for the next 3 days.

On the 4th day I noticed the wound had closed with no sign of infection. I stopped wearing the bandage and just switched to a large athletic band aid and now 10 days later it is completely healed up with no infection. I have never used coconut oil on a cut before but it did speed up the healing process and I believe kept it free of infection. I get cuts quite a bit (I work with glass) so I have a good idea of how long a deep cut takes to heal and this time by using the coconut oil it cut down the healing time by at least half.

For overnight miraculous healing of wounds, apply coconut oil to it. This will also ensure that no scar is left behind.
