Applying coconut oil on your belly button boosts fertility.
Coconut oil has many benefits. It makes one’s skin glow, the scented liquid makes it very supple and women regularly apply it to have long, lustrous hair.
Applying coconut oil on the navel is an ayurvedic practice which dates back thousands of years. According to this science, regular application of coconut oil allows one to have healthy internal organs and the body doesn't bloat.
However, there’s one more benefit of applying coconut oil. It improves your fertility and helps you get pregnant.
This is probably because coconut oil has medium chain triglycerides, a component that leads to loss of belly fat. This means that the adipose tissue, which has an adverse effect on fertility, burns when coconut oil enters the system.
Apart from coconut oil, you could apply other oils on your belly button and experience relief from various other ailments.
Applying neem oil can rid you off your acne while almond oil boosts the glow on one’s face.
If you’re suffering from a cold, you could dip a cotton ball in some brandy and place it on your belly button for a while. This will give you some relief from stomach cramps and menstrual pain.
Some of these practices are age old and may sound a bit bizarre but the belly button can cleanse most ailments that people experience.
