I have always heard about how amazing coconut oil was and recently after I gave birth to my third child I decided to try to jump on this wagon. First off let me just say amazing. Coconut oil is one of those universal things that just make life easier. I have used coconut oil as a substitute for some of my dishes that I cook, A healthy alternative for vegetable oil or butter. During pregnancy I use coconut oil on my stomach to prevent stretch marks and help the elasticity and moisture of my skin. I have also used it for my hair, it locks and so much more moisture and create so much bounce. If I could pour coconut oil over my entire life, I would. Funny thing is, I don't even like the taste of coconuts.
