Coconut oil is great for:

There are several other great benefits from using and consuming coconut oil as well. Here’s another great coconut oil product that you may want to try if you don’t already have a favorite.

As I’ve mentioned in other posts…I LOVE the solid coconut oil from Trader Joe’s, but fractionated coconut oil is great for other things and saves time!


The Fractionated Coconut Oil offered by GoPure is considered an all-natural type of carrier oil that is able to easily absorb into your skin, which makes it a go-to option for all types of topical therapies.

It offers a feather-light emollient, providing a soothing barrier, without the risk of clogging your pores, and is ideal for dry or otherwise troubled skin.

It provides the skin with a non-greasy, silky smooth feel, unlike the other vegetable carrier oils currently available.

It is completely soluble with all types of essential oils and is odorless and colorless, which means it will not stain any fabric it comes in contact with.

TIP- I use coconut oil as a carrier oil for my reed diffusers.

It’s great for refilling them rather than spending money on refills at the store. I just add a few hefty drops of essential oil to it for a fresh scent!

You can use any of your favorites and mix them up!
