Great info. I have been using coconut oil in all kinds of ways and it is very helpful. It moisturizes my skin, is great for my hair and helps me to lose weight. It is one super food. Thanks.

I would like to know where to purchase pure coconut oil, other than Middle Earth, where a small 4 oz. bottle is like $7.00. I live in New Hampshire, any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Donna, you can get it at Trader Joe's. A very good sized jar goes for around $6.00.

Walmart carries a "Carrington Farms" brand that is 100% organic, extra virgin, pure, unrefined, cold pressed coconut oil. 12 oz is between $6-$7. I bought two, one for me, and one for my bichon frise dog. It does a great job killing and preventing fleas on my dog and also quickly cleared up any skin problems that were there from his scratching. In doing this, I stumbled upon another great use for it: it works like Angel Eyes on white dogs and is a whole lot cheaper. Don't get it too close to their eyes, yet it will still clear up all the dark area under the eyes. He likes to lick it off his hair, but it doesn't hurt him to ingest that little amount. But what I applied to the skin is still there. I'm not sure if applying it to his skin or the amount he licks off his hair is what worked the miracle like Angel Eyes....maybe both. But fleas are gone and he sleeps peacefully at night instead of scratching. Note: The LouAnne brand or whatever it's called is not the same ingredients and did not work on my dog. The Carrington Farms shows on the bottom of the container it has "lauric acid" 6.02g in it and some of the others do not have that.

For overnight miraculous healing of wounds, apply coconut oil to it. This will also ensure that no scar is left behind.

I am curious as to what results people have achieved using coconut oil for reducing facial lines?

It is a lovely moisturizer, but if you want a line minimize, treat your lines with castor oil every night before bed. Be sure to pat off the excess oil with tissue and use a pillowcase you do not care about in case of transfer.

I read about Coconut oil on this site and went to my local health store to ask if they had any. They said no, but they suggested I take caprylic acid, which is in coconut oil and helps cure yeast overgrowth. I purchased it to help cure my athlete's foot and stomach discomfort.

I purchased it and I took one 350MG tablet daily as per directions. It did not cure my athlete's foot like I wanted, but I felt less hungry, less tired, and my stomach felt better. I also lost weight without serious effort. I've been taking it for two months now.

Warning: I experienced two things while taking this: stomach discomfort and a slightly yeasty odor coming from my body for a week or two.

The yeasty smell rubbed off on my washcloth and towels. I discovered by accident that putting a capful of hydrogen peroxide (the regular kind from the pharmacy, not the food grade kind) in my bathwater stopped this. It stopped me from emitting the yeasty smell and from transferring it to my wash cloth and towels.

For the athlete foot try apple cider vinegar. Wash you feet and use equal parts of the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and after you moisturizer whith coconut oil. You have to be consistent and patient.
