    I just bought mine from woollies.

    My hair can get really oiling quickly but it's been great with this. I literally use the tiniest bit and I don't put it near the roots. I got so many comments at work today 😊

    OK so who has tried using it as lube??
    I might give it a go. Do you think it's sperm friendly ? Google says probs not.

    I usually buy it at coles in the health food section, but I have also got big tubs of it from the chemist when they have it on sale. it's all the same stuff, so can all be used for consumption or topical use.

    I've never used coconut oil for anything, and I don't really have any desire to, seems a bit of a fad thing to me. HOWEVER if it helps my stupidly frizzy hair, I'd be willing to give it a go!

    Did you know if you mix coconut oil,avocado oil and natural castor oil together and apply to your eyelashes and brows they grow faster and thicker?

    Get a small plastic bottle like the ones allowed on planes and mix three equal parts and shake until all oils are blended together and then apply.

    After 3-4 weeks you will notice the growth.

    I started using it last night to try to prevent stretch marks. (I'm 14 weeks)

    I purchased it online, apparently it's best to find 100% pure organic oil, that is extra virgin and cold pressed (don't ask me why - I was told this on another forum).

    The smells makes me crave a bounty bar though! Lol

    There is different types of coconut oil, so you do need to know which to use for what. Some types are less effective for certain things. Google will tell you.

    Just for those who are considering using it on your face be very careful and patch test for a few weeks before doing your whole face. It's highly comedogenic and can make you break out like crazy.

    I wasn't aware of that. I must be more careful when looking up natural face scrubs 😬.
