Which one do any of you use. I know it is supposed to be unrefined, but is there any particular brand that is better? I am thinking of buying some soon. Just not sure which one to get.

I buy Nutiva brand from Costco. It's organic, unrefined, cold-pressed, extra-virgin coconut oil. I'm pretty sure all of those "factors" are important when buying coconut oil that you'll be using to cook as well as make into body products, etc.

I get this brand from Amazon or Carrington Farms 100% Organic from Costco. Both meet the same qualifications.

I order mine online from Tropical Traditions - it's 100% cold pressed organic from small, usually family owned growers (as a small business owner, this is important to me).

I ordered some today. I went with the Nutiva brand. I got a large jar since I plan on starting to cook with it as well as nipple cream, butt cream, etc. I can't wait to get it. I ordered it from amazon, so I am sure it won't take long to ship.

It's the only oil that I use when I bake now, and it's the only "lotion" that I use on my almost 2 year old. It's cleared up 90% of her diaper rashes (even the yeasty ones), and I use it on my own face every day, and use it to make body "butter" (just added some essential oils and coco butter to it).

It's amazing to bake with! I also use it when I'm making scrambled eggs or veggies, etc.

I use it as "lotion" for the whole family. I use it on my 3 year old's tush if she gets a rash.
We even eat it off a spoon because of the health benefits.

We drank the koolaid, lol.

I really can't wait to get mine, lol. It is so funny to see the things we get excited about as we get older compared to what excited us when we were younger.

I rub myself down with it every night lol. I have 3 bottles in my house. One in the kitchen for cooking, one in the bathroom for lotion, and one in my birth kit that will also be used for baby once he gets here.
