This oil tastes SO good and it tastes great too! I've been using it to brush my teeth, put in my hair, put on my face, cook with, and moisturize my body. I did extensive research about organic coconut oils and found this one to be the best reviewed and one of the best priced. Overall I am very happy with this coconut oil and intend to further buy it in my future due to its incredible healthy benefits in all realms.
Now, I will say this~ and please remember that I intend to buy this oil again an stick with it so this is not to knock it, but I want to give people a little education. When I personally first apply this oil over all my body it feels wonderful, after doing it for a couple days I started to notice that my skin was actually starting to feel on the dry side~ I called nutiva company and spoke with a gentleman, who he himself said he personally uses this brand of coconut oil on his body as a lotion daily and it works great on him, but he told me that the owner of nutiva had one time told him that coconut oil has the POTENTIAL to be drying for some people's skin, and it appears that my skin is one of those. NOW, also understand, that I have very sensitive skin to begin with, and after reading countless reviews from this site and others, how MANY MANY MANY people use this as a daily moisturizer for their skin and have no problems with it, there is just that slim chance that it could be drying for your particular skin type. SO, I found a good solution for me.. I use the coconut oil daily for my hair, face, cooking, and brushing teeth, and eating a TBS a day, but am limiting putting it on my entire body to only 1 or 2x a week, and when I do I also lubricate my skin with another type of oil or butter, like raw shea butter or what I've been mixing wiht it lately is organic rosehip seed oil and I find that my skin doesn't get as dry. Again, overall I fell in love with this oil and intend to buy more, just not to use it as a daily moisturizer for my entire body. :)
