    I agree that coconut oil is the bomb. I have a bald head (by choice ) and my scalp is prone to drying out. So I apply a small amount of coconut oil to my scalp after shaving it and to my face. Plus coconut oil just smells so good especially when heated. I get a big tub of it from Costco and today I just ran out from the tub I bought back in August!

    I can't wait to meet my abs for the first time in my life. We gotta lot of catching up to do.

    I love this way of eating and hope to be able to help others.

      I too use it as eye make up remover, and as a moisturiser. It helps post-leg shaving too.

      As a mum, I can confirm it is also useful on kids for eczema, thrush, sore bums post-constipation and nappy rash. And as a general placebo for various ills and ailments that children believe need cream!

      I also sometimes use it in my bath to disperse essential oils. Skin comes out lovey but makes the bath very slippy!

            also as mouthwash. my gums feel super clean and healthy.

            As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

              I use it in my hair also. I only discovered it like a month or so ago, and made a big deal about it to everyone in my life. All over town I was like, "Ya know I have been anti-"putting-stuff-in-your-hair" since I was like, 8 years old? Well I found something awesome finally. My life is changed!"

              I also like to flick it at my wife's breasts
              "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

                I'm starting to feel like Gus from My Big Fat Greek Wedding . . . only, instead of "Put some Windex" . . . . my cure all for everything is to put some coconut oil on it!

                  I bet the baby loves that. Mine is 18 months, happily eating solid foods and still insists on being nursed once in a while (read: once a day at least)

                    It is so awesome that you are still able to nurse though! It's a comfort thing baby obviously loves mommy! Nothing better than that.

                      OMG - This is so me! Sometimes I have to tell myself to shut up about coconut oil when talking to others.

                      My uses:
                      -add to coffee for breakfast
                      -it's my face moisturizer and body lotion
                      -leave-in overnight hair conditioner
                      -tanning oil/sunscreen (no burns, but great tan)
                      -use for oil-pulling (testing to see if helps whitening, healthy mouth)
