VCO is also used as massage oil and moisturizer. For centuries traditional healers in India and the South Pacific have used coconut oil for massage to soothe and cool the body. It is used to alleviate symptoms of eczema, and other milder skin ailments, such as nappy rash. Because it is absorbed quickly by the skin, it does not leave a sticky feeling.
