Fractionated Coconut Oil Review

Guess who's sick with Influenza now? Isaak is. They weren't fibbing when they said it's highly contagious. I've been staying in one spot, and washing my hands gobs of times. I've gotten good at turning on and off light switches with my elbow. It started with his back hurting this morning, then he felt achy, he has a cough, is pasty, and slower than his slow self. Dad picked up his Thamiflu, and Mica's preventative Thamiflu. We're still waiting on our insurance cards, so it was $600 out of pocket for now. YIKES! At least we'll see some of that money again one day.

I've been babying my baby by giving him a back massage with 100% Natural Fractionated Coconut Oil. I added some drops of peppermint oil in it. 

Little man has a birthmark on his back. Just in case you were wondering what that spot is.

Isaak said, "Mom this feels so good!" It wasn't sticky after I rubbed it into his back.

You can use this coconut oil for massages. There are many hair and skin benefits. It's base oil for therapeutic recipes and essential oil. It's safe to use as a moisturizer and softener. 
  • Great therapeutic benefits
  • Excellent on skin; a natural and very safe moisturizer, softener and non-irritant lubricator
  • It can be mixed with other carriers and essential Oils
  • Wonderful balance of saturated fats helps stimulate hair growth
  • Fractionated coconut oil is a carrier that never goes rancid
  • It leaves skins smooth with no greasy feeling 
  • Odorless and colorless. Does not stain and easily washes out of clothing and sheets
  • Low production costs make it cost effective, you can find it on Amazon for $24.95 and on sale for $16.50
  • It does not aggravate skin problems or clog pores, it being an oil you'd think it would clog up the pores, but it absorbs into the skin quickly

It comes in a 16 ounce bottle. There is a lid you can screw on that allows you to squirt it out. I was thinking there may be a pump lid. It's a liquid, not thick like regular kitchen coconut oil.

Advantages of Using Fractionated Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil has long been used all over the world for its many therapeutic and other benefits to the skin. My step grandma is from the Philippines, and they use coconut oil for cooking, and on their skin. They have very little autoimmune diseases, and young looking skin!

It has antiviral and antibacterial properties, a wonderful balance of saturated fats in its natural form and helps stimulate hair growth. You can mix some in your shampoo.

Many aromatherapy recipes use coconut oil for the various therapeutic benefits it offers. Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very long shelf life and greatly increased stability. In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, thus giving it more of antioxidant and disinfecting effect.

Have you ever used coconut oil on your skin?

I've never had coconut oil but it sounds like it works well. I'm really sorry your son is sick. I hope the rest of you don't get it. It's tearing Georgia up right now.

I have never used it, but I bet it would be awesome on my super dry winter skin.

I love fractionated coconut oil. I've been using it on my skin and hair and it makes it look and feel amazing!

I use coconut oil for so many things. I haven't tried the fractionated yet though.

With the cold (aka drier skin) I have been using oils with broxton... he doesn't mind it and I like how it all absorbs so fast.
