Coconut Oil!

I have recently discovered coconut oil. The search began when Little G had a rash on his face from a dairy allergy. I went to a natural food store and found a 15 ounce jar of coconut oil for $10. I bought it and put it on Little G's face. With in hours the rash was gone. I later found out that coconut oil is cloth diaper friendly. I gave it a try on a nasty diaper rash. The diaper rash was gone by the next morning. Coconut oil is my new answer to everything.

Why spend a lot of money on expensive diaper creams when you can buy all natural coconut oil. I now use it when I make my baby wipes.

To use it you scoop out what you need and start rubbing. It will begin as a solid but melt into a yummy smelling liquid. It smells like the beach. ahhhh I love it.

Still not convinced? Here are other benefits
*Great for your skin and hair
*Can prevent some illnesses
*Wonderful for rashes, scrapes, and cuts
*Can play a role in weight loss
*Helps digestion
*Stress Relief

There are so many more benefits to this amazing oil. A simple Internet search will open your eyes to this all natural miracle.

Thanks for the tip...with baby #3 on the way I can always use new ideas that work well and natural is always a bonus:)

Oh, wow, I will definitely be trying it! My third little guy has eczema...I wonder if it would help him! (this is toomanylegos from bbc, by the way) ;)

ohh you could for sure use this with baby #3. I wish someone would have told me about when I had Big G. It would have saved me so much money. I don't know if I will ever buy another diaper rash cream again.

Andrea, give it a try. I think you will really like it. I use it for everything. Big G had carpet burn on his leg and of course I put some coconut oil on it. It worked great!

Hey Alanna,
I bought the Organic coconut oil and it doesn't have the coconut smell..?? I went to the Vitaminn Shoppe here in Mass and they had a few varieties... is your coconut oil expeller pressed or cold pressed or refined..?

This kind of stuff is why I read your blog! I'm going to go out and look for some coconut oil tomorrow! Thanks Alanna!

Cass, I have unrefined coconut oil. What did you end up buying?

Amanda said...

My friend just started making her own deodorant, and the base is coconut oil. She loves it. I used some on my hands and liked it too. I may have to invest in some!

I found your blog from your BBC signature. Nice blog!
