pure organic coconut oil from the grocery side is the one you can use for anything.

dont get a stick of cocoa butter from the beauty side and rub it on your skillet.

also I use coconut manna for smoothies and spreads. its the coconut flesh pulverized into a butter consistency. works great as a thickener with way more flavor and nutrient than just oil. I havnt heard of using coconut oil in a smoothie before.

 This made me laugh so hard!! I can just imagine a CM mom saying that they bought beauty aisle cocoabutter because it was cheaper than coconut oil and it made their muffins taste nasty. LMFAO!!

If you got it from the food section you're on the right path.

lol, I was sort of that mom. When my son was about a year just really starting to get into things. I always bought pure coconut oil beauty sticks to moisturize my stretch marks. My son was playing in a box fort and when I went to join I saw him sitting indian style eating my stick of coco butter! He acted like it was chocolate or something! I freaked out and called poison control. She said she wasnt surprised because it probably tasted good like the food, but is loaded with preservatives to keep it from spoiling. She said he might get a tummy ache but not to worry. lol.

i had a dog who would seek out my cocoa butter lotions and try to chew into the packages.     it does smell great.    do you wash your face with coconut oil?   i have a friend who found that on pinterest and said i should too but the idea of washing with oil scares me!!!   seems greasy!!
