Coconut Oil is not just for cooking

I’ve been using coconut oil as a moisturizer for a few months now, and I love it.  It penetrates your skin on a deeper level than lotion and leaves your skin uber soft.  Coconut oil contains antibacterial and antifungal properties.  It’s more solid than other cooking oils, and it melts into your skin upon application.  I have also tried it as a deep conditioner in my hair as an overnight treatment.  Refined coconut oil has no fragrance as it’s more processed.  Unrefined has a more tropical scent and is a bit more heavy but less processed. Of course, I recommend that you at least buy organic with whichever you choose.  Check out this article on some additional uses of coconut oil.
