Like will it not be as good if it goes through the transition too many times? (I was thinking about how every time you reheat food it gets less and less appealing lol)
Nope it won't hurt it at all. It just changes based on the temp. No worries

Re: Coconut Oil!

I use it for everything. It's my "Greek Windex" lol

1:1 coconut oil & baking soda is our toothpaste (& fyi my last dentist cleaning was the BEST & quickest I've ever had - dentist said my routine was great).

Face cream, body cream, use for oil pulling, on the feet with garlic for detoxing/pulling out toxins, I consume a few tablespoons a day to help with digestion & also as a part of my naturopathic regimen (helps kill off "bugs" etc). Put it on cuts/scrapes like you would neosporin... hair conditioner (leave-in) & anti-frizz cream (only product I use in my hair), rub into the scalp to get rid of dandriff...

LOVE.

I used to use it for deodorant, but stopped. Hair oil, moisturizer, diaper rash, cradle cap, heat rash... I'll have to try the toothpaste thing. How does it taste?

Re: Coconut Oil!

We use it 'in the bedroom' too, massage oil too . Moisturizer all over, especially itchy prego belly. Making popcorn, but not as the topping. Definitely in diaper area when they start looking red. To keep hair shiny. We used it on cradle cap. Whenever my kids start getting crusty behind the ears I rub some on before the tub then gently flake it off with a washrag. I've read that it's ok for it to melt and reharden, but not to microwave it. I've bought some coconut oil capsules to take as a daily supplement but haven't been taking them daily yet so I can't testify to its benefits. It's supposed to help with hair and skin, digestion, weight loss, sunscreen, lots of stuff too when taken internally.

I made my own creamy baby powder with it today. A little oil and some corn starch. Worked great. Went on like lotion.

I found a recipe for deodorant that I plan to use too.
