No, not sticky at all. Greasy? Yes, for a short bit until it absorbs. Then it goes away though! And I always smell like I just got back from the Caribbean.

I use it for cooking and as a moisturizer. Sadly, it did nothing for DS's eczema nor does it help with diaper rash/irritation.

I'm intrigued with using it as toothpaste...I'm going to have to try it! One of these days, I also want to try homemade deodorant.

Re: Coconut Oil!

I love coconut oil! I use coconut oil and flax oil for just about everything. Also, coconut butter is soooo much better than cow milk butter in cookies!

Re: Coconut Oil!

Moisturizing after a hot bath and baking... yummy in muffins and in no bake energy bites. Also have been using it for my LOs cradle cap.
I have a homemade deoderent recipe I want to try also. It uses coconut oil, arrowroot powder & baking soda with essential oils.

Re: Coconut Oil!

LOVE coconut oil! We use it as a moisturizer mainly, but I have found it REALLY helps my itchy pregnancy belly!
