Thanks Kay for the info on the organic coconut oil. Hope it will help my Fibromyalgia pain.

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.
