Coconut oil is also supposed to help with the healing of wounds.  When oil is applied to wounds, they are said to heal faster.  I have also seen (when I lived in Micronesia) wounds being bathed in water in which chips from the coconut tree itself (rather than the fruit) were soaked.  The local people said that this helped the wounds heal more quicky.
