Coconut oil has been used since the beginning of time as a beauty secret. I keep a jar in the kitchen for cooking and a jar in my bathroom for use every day as a natural moisturizer. It's even great to put on the tips of your hair for extra shine. It's also great to prevent stretch marks if your pregnant. Well enough said. I loved your post, very informative :)
