I love it too, we use it for an all-over body moisturizer and in our curly hair. It's also wonderful for mama and daddy time and of course it is good for cooking too.

I've been using it on my sons bottom and i haven't had an repelling issues with our cloth diapers :-) It seems to do magic. I put a little coconut oil on him, and the rash almost goes away completely after just a few hours. Cocout oil is anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. :-)

When I mix it with Shea Butter it works wonders on my daughters eczema patches!
