I love coconut oil!! I swallow a spoonful on an empty stomach in the morning and at night to keep my body healthy and to stave off infections. I have a little remedy I like to do for dry, flaky skin with organic ground turmeric powder and organic virgin coconut oil. Around my mouth was constantly itchy, irritated, flakey, and cracked (in the corners of my mouth) and I made this paste out of the coconut oil and turmeric powder and put it on the effected areas. It cleared up super fast... within a weeks time! I would use this paste again on any annoying, dry and flakey spots!
