I buy the organic coconut oil and have been known to take it by the teaspoon full before.  I think it helps with my RA.  I also use it in facial and body scrubs, mixing a dab in coffee grounds.  Skin feels smooth and silky when finished :)

A lot of people just put a tablespoon in their cereal, etc.

Thanks for info, I was talking about the coconut oil you take by mouth, 2TBS a day. Health Food store was out of the kind in the jar so I bought capsules and taking 3-3x day. Just started Monday, will see if burst of energy and some pain relief along with clearing some fibro fog the last two days is related. I am still some what spectacle so will see if it continues.

High heat cooking I use grape seed oil or Nucoa margerine.

I like coconut oil, but it really does not like higher temperatures, for foods that I like to cook on high heat I use Olive oil. 

coconut oil is also great for your skin and hair

I cook with coconut oil now instead of olive oil.  It has a nice flavor.

I don't know if this fits in here, I would like to know if anyone has tried coconut oil. I have read a lot about it lately and considering giving it a try for allergies, fibro fog, chronic fatigue and more.

Thanks Vicky, I will be harvesting some mint here shortly then, and hanging it to dry. :)

Thanks Darlene.  I have been a licensed midwife for 28 years so am a practicing herbalist also.  I'm just thought it would be fun and worthwhile to get my certificate.  But it is always good to put two perspectives together.  Always comes up with a better answer.

Before they flower and early morning. Try to keep them from flowering if you can keep up.

Pink Astilbes and Ferns

"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."
