it was fascinating to read

2. aromatherapy
3. cooking and massage oil
4. acts as a hormone balancer
5. topping for baked potatoes, popcorn, toast, and other food items - here are fifteen awesome recipes
6. seals the pores of eggs, allowing them to be fresher for longer {up to one-two weeks}
7. a natural skin moisturizer {one of my good friends swears by this!} here is a facial scrub recipe
8. a healing bath - here is a great bubble bath recipe

  4. Thanks for the tips! I had heard about taking it as a daily supplement. I tried it one day but gagged, so I started spreading on my breakfast and it was much better. I will also try it for energy. I could definitely use the boost...

  6. My husband uses a coconut oil spray for some mild psoriasis he was getting on his chin (beard problems), and it cleared it right up. That stuff is amazing. I use a coconut oil hand lotion that is a miracle worker. I tried oil pulling and that was not for me, but otherwise I love coconut oil!
