Fractionated Coconut Oil {Product Review}

 I'm starting to get into trying essential oils. In fact, very soon I'll be reviewing some. This is something I'm pretty excited about. But today I am reviewing Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil and Message Oil. This oil is made by GoPure Naturals. (Facebook page.) I received this product free in exchange for my honest review.

I'm pretty sure you can use this stuff for a lot of things. My personal hope is to one day use it to make lip balm or something (along with some of the essential oils.) Actually, since this oil is in liquid form (one of its features) and not solid, I'm not sure if you would use it in lip balm. I suppose you could, possibly... Because I am so new to the realm of essential oils and carrier oils, I haven't used this oil a lot yet. As I research more about it, I can see myself using it frequently in the future.

 Carrier oil is used to dilute essential oils. It can be used to spread the essential oils over a larger area or to make the oils that would be harmful in their strongest form into a gentler form. Apparently, this oil is a good massage oil. Because this is carrier oil it is only for outer use. This isn't the oil you buy in the store that can be used for cooking.

 I used this oil to spread essential into my hands and arms. It spread well, and I like the fact that my hands don't use super greasy after use, like I have to wash my hands or something. That is a definite plus. I also like the fact that this oil is 100% fractionated coconut oil and not diluted with something else. The bottle it comes in is quite large, 16 oz. I am not extremely familiar with the costs of these type of things but I think that is a pretty good deal for the less than $15 price.

 If you have been keeping an eye on health crazes, you already know the benefits of coconut oil in general. It is amazing how many good things coconut oil can do for you. Besides the kind of oil you use for consumption, fractionated coconut oil can do fabulous things for your skin and hair. The best part is that it is natural and you aren't putting weird chemicals on your body. This oil is produced to have a long shelf life. In fact, if properly taken care of, this oil can last years. It is also odorless and colorless so won't stain clothes.

 Once again this is a nice, light weight oil. It is very nice, I love the package (it has a easy to use pop top like a shampoo bottle) and is just a very well put together product. If you'd like to check it out yourself, see here.
