Now, three jars later - I am hooked.
I add a tablespoon to my smoothies, I use it as lip balm, a healing ointment for wounds, lotion for dry skin, as an under eye cream for wrinkles and dark circles, as an acne cream for break outs, lessens the appearance of scars, on stretch marks, in my mug of hot tea, on itchy bug bites, in baked goods, as a base for essential oils, - love this stuff! Especially for skin it just does wonders. And I am just scratching the surface for what it can be used for.

If I go through the next jars as fast as I have the first I may start consider buying in bulk online.
Definitely worth a try if you've been meaning to do so or ever wondered about it.
Go grab a small $5.99 jar at TJ Maxx in the cooking, seasonings aisle - I now get the larger $8.99 jars - small investment for how far it goes and in so many directions. (Coconut oil can also be found at your every day grocery store - Walmart, Meijer, etc - in the cooking aisle- I have even seen a coconut oil cooking spray now.)
The only thing I haven't used coconut oil for, surprisingly, is cooking. Go figure. :)
Here's a few recipes I found here lately that sound SO GOOD that use coconut oil:
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Strawberry Coconut Chia Seed Banana Bread
Dark Chocolate Banana Bread
Frozen Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Coconut Oil Protein Bars
