Hello friends. I was wondering if any of you use coconut oil instead of conventional lotions. I have begun to use it on my legs and arms when its dry and it seems like a pretty good use of it. I have also used it on my face. I read somewhere I believe on Dr. Mercola's site that you shouldn't put anything on your skin that you wouldn't put in your mouth and eat. This is because you absorb it a lot of things through your skin. With all the alcohols and chemicals they put in conventional lotion I would't want any of that ever being absorbed into my system even if it is only trace amounts. I know some people who are allergic to coconut oil have had allergic rashes to it but for me its been smooth sailing so far. Anybody else use coconut oil in this way?
