I'm an avid fan of coconut oil. It tastes great and is inexpensive and easy to use. Plus, it's multi-purposeful. I use my coconut oil for cooking and baking, as lotion, as hair oil, as a base for homemade deodorants and in raw food preparation. My favorite trait of coconut oil is that it does not turn into a trans-fat when heated at high temperatures! This makes it ideal for frying and baking. In addition, coconut oil acts as an antifungal, antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral. It is also very soothing to our body and skin.
