it is my oil of choice when cooking. I also put it in my smoothies. I don't pay much attention to the saturated fats and what not.

I have a hard time finding moisturizers for my face that don't make the dryness worse around my nose. I tried coconut oil and have not had any problems. I now use it regularly. At first it seems greasy when you put it on, so a little goes a long way, then it soaks in.

Hi! You can also use it for skin and hair:) there's a lot of different uses for it besides taking it orally!
And it's so expensive! I've heard that it's good to cook with because it has almost no flavor and (maybe?) a low melting point? You know, I'm not sure why it's such a cool thing right now. I was going to buy some to make home-made magic shell (thank you Pinterest) but that's just crazy fat. Good luck in your quest!
I heard coconut oil was really good for you but when I started looking at the different oils pure coconut, canola, vege, and olive oils I noticed coconut had 12g of satuated fat. After the fact I mixed it in my waffle mix :(. So is satiated fat the worst out of all of them. I usually use canola oil in mixes but I spent a lot on this pure coconut stuff and I need to use it.
