I use coconut oil for everything… cooking, hair, moisturizing. I’d suggest exfoliating first (just with a loofah or something), then moisturizing. Jojoba oil is also good for this. You can get coconut oil cheap online or at Trader Joe’s.

@LadyMonster:  Ditto. I love coconut & jojoba.

When you buy coconut oil, make sure it’s virgin!

I use it for my skin, getting rid of my baby’s cradle cap, diaper cream, cooking, and for personal lubricant (TMI! lol).

I mix virgin coconut oil in with shea butter and use that on my skin (I also add Jojoba oil, castor oil and vitamin E) I’ve been doing this for almost 2 years and my skin has never felt beter.

@urchin:  How do you use it to get rid of cradle cap?

I bought some unrefined virgin coconut oil, but it is in a solid form. Can I use it as lotion too? Or should it be in a liquid form?

I love jojoba oil. I have combination skin but it gets really dry in the winter. A couple drops of jojoba oil into my moisturizer works great!

@sapphiregirl:  It will melt in your hands, so you can use it in solid form. They don’t really sell it in “liquid form”, it is solid at room temp & melts at higher temperatures due to the saturated fat content.

I use it for elbows & heels when I have it. I also use it in my hair. I’m all out & it costs a fortune here, so I really need to order some online, which I haven’t done in a while.

I use coconut oil as a moisturizer and cook with it as well, very good for you. I use it all over my body but it tends to leave a “film”. I buff with a towel afterwards and that seems to get the excess off as well as exfoliate a bit.

@jjmomma:  For cradle cap, I massaged it into my DD’s scalp and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then I took my fingernails (or a soft brush) and went over her scalp in circular motions until the cradlecap comes off.

Then I gave her a bath and shampoo’d 3 timed. DD has long hair, so it takes a few washes to get it all out of her hair.

It’s the only thing I’ve found to work though. All the other “remedies: didn’t work well at all!
