I have used it when baking brownies and it melts lovely on toast, very buttery!
I put some in a Rx bottle for "dog topical" use.

Hi,
I too need to thank you Mindy.  My 8 year old has struggled with molluscums on her legs, recently the ones on her little thighs became very red, swollen and quite uncomfortable.  I put coconut oil on them and literally overnight they were virtually gone, just a few tiny mulluscums, with no swelling at all and most importantly no discomfort.  I had an appointment with her doctor that morning and was really wishing I took a before picture.  It was amazing!  
I have used coconut oil to cook with for sometime but now it goes on everything, it's my new aquaphor.
Thank you, thank you!

have any of you tried the Vita coconut water?  Has good antioxidant properties.  I have curly hair and always need a good conditioner or moisture rich product so my hair has spirals not a janice joplin look!  I found the Organix brand cocunut shampoo conditioner and especially mousse work better than any other products i have used.  gives a full bouncy curl.  Also, real inexpensive at CVS large bottle of queen helene coco butter hand and body lotion can be used as face moisturizer.  I use all summer and works just as well as expensive counter brands i have used. I have sensitive skin and mild psoriasis and have tried sooo many products and ironically it ends up being the less expensive simple things that work best like cocunut based products or cocoa butter go figure!  thanks for the articles Deb!

Hello, my wife AND my back swear by coconut oil.

The best place to get it is Fiji, we got 4 bottles of pure oil with texture(still can feel the pulp) which when warms melts for a dollar a bottle for a shampoo size bottle.

"Newton" I personally would not suggest injesting it as it is high in collesterol.  That being said it works wonders on my wifes ceriasis.

Actually, coconut oil is high in saturated fat BUT consuming virgin coconut oil will reduce your cholesterol. It only slightly increases your good HDL cholesterol.

The danger lies in using hydrogenated coconut oil hence the reason you should only use and buy the raw organic unpasteurized coconut oil.The hydrogenation process creates trans fatty acids. And they cause the blood cholesterol to rise.

BUT using the good stuff DOES NOT do this...there are no TFA's in raw organic.

I have one girl who is a really picky eater. I put a couple of tablespoons in with her kibble and she sucks it right down. WIth what is left of the spoon, I rub on my one girl's nose (she has the driest nose I've ever seen).

WOW Mindy!  I am just getting into coconut oil.  I just looked at when this thread started and you are soooooo far ahead of me.  I put coconut oil on Magnus' fur.  He looks amazing with it.  Not to mention I will never bbq chicken without it now.

This is probably a stupid question, but here goes.  Could it be used on C+ dogs to lower stone formation?  All the links mention Lauric Acid which is one of the "COLA" acids we see mentioned so much.

It's usually used on the scalp to nourish the skin and the newly forming hair cells. But, you can use it on the damaged length. It won't do anything amazing, especially after you shampoo it out, but if you use it frequently, over time you will notice your hair regrowth is healthier.

Coconut oil is good for everyone. It helps with ringworm on humans too.. I made some balm out of coconut oil and Absorbine horse linament for my son when he got ringworm from JiuJitsu Class. Works great and also helps pups paws a lot. We live in a high desert area and it is hard to keep paws from cracking here.

Coconut oil also makes the best popcorn since it is what all theaters and big venues used for years. It makes it so popcorn doesn't go stale and stays good for a while.. Good stuff and healthy too (for a saturated oil)

Im so glad you posted this Mindee!!    I started cooking with this oil  and lost 15lbs in 3 1/2 weeks along with cutting food off at 7pm and drinking only water!   The coconut oil has increased my energy dramatically ~  I feel like I can swim the engish channel, lol.



For my mastiff, I have been giving her a couple tablespoons of this coconut oil and  it has helped heal her damaged coat and she has gained so much more energy being on the cocnut oil.    Also ~ for in between ear cleanings if dogs are notorious for inner ear infections, Dr Brad Patterson in moorpark california has an easy at home recipe for in between ear cleanings, it works as a preventative after you have cleared an existing ear infection......  Thanks for posting about the coconut oil ~ my girl loves it and it has brought her weight down and increased her metabolism..

Just went to the health food store and got coconut oil....rubbed some into Riggs ears, they are just dirty no mites. He loved it..they are nice and clean and smell great....going to rub some on his calluses also. If I put some in his food will it make him lose ( one O or two ? Could never figure that out ) weight? He doesn't need to lose any. But I read it's a great way for humans to lose weight

Have been giving my crew coconut oil for probably close to a year.  Unfortunately, I've lost 3 of 4 of my pups in the last several months. The ONLY thing I've noticed is that their fur was a bit softer. Once I finish the last jar, I probably won't continue it.

Do you feed your boxer coconut oil? If so, awesome! If not, you should definitely consider it. Here’s why: The cost is low. The risk is zero. And the potential benefits are enormous.

Five reasons why you should add coconut oil to your dog's diet:

1) It improves overall skin health - It clears up skin conditions such as eczema, contact dermatitis, hot spots and itchy skin. It kills fleas, ticks and even the dreaded mange, plus coconut oil eliminates dog odor!

2) Weight control - coconut oil can increase your dog’s metabolism which helps your dog maintain a healthy weight.

3) Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections - Its antiviral agents also help dogs recover quickly from kennel cough. Just add a a teaspoon of coconut oil with each feeding.

4) Improves digestion and nutrient absorption, plus it reduces or eliminates bad breath.

5) Promotes normal thyroid function, helps prevent or control diabetes, and relieves arthritis.

Our suggestion is…try it for yourself. Just buy one jar of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s a cheap investment, especially when you consider the potential gains it might have on the quality of your dog’s life.

every bit as much as someone wanting a "show dog".

I have used it in my dogs eyes - yes, you read that right - directly in the eye.  It cleared an eye infection up completely in two days.

Hello, glad I came across this thread. I didn't know that coconut oil can also be used for dogs. We've been using it liberally (on our hair, skin, and we even drink it). We'll try it on our dogs too. Thanks for sharing! [image]

I have been using coconut oil for my english mastiff now for about 6 months. It is amazing his coat is much better. I also noticed he does not have any more parasite issues. I also want to mention he sropped 10 pounds and looks much leaner. It may also be due to his raw diet.
