  1. I have never see someone wrote with such passion and detail like you did. Kudos to you. Do you mind if I share your writing so other may benefited from it? (of course with due reference given to you and your site).

  2. Thank you so much for this helpful comparison! I've been using fractionated coconut oil mixed with various essential oils on my face every morning because it absorbed quickly and didn't leave me feeling greasy (or make my bangs greasy), then cleansing my face and applying EVCO before bed every night. Then I began seeing articles and blogs denouncing the use of fractionated coconut oil. Thanks to this article I now know why my skin looks and feels so much smoother and healthier and much less wrinkled and the fractionated oil seems to play a part in that. I am on the backside of "middle age" and coconut (both fractionated and extra virgin), jojoba oil, plus a host of other essential oils, have made a huge difference!

  3. Thank you for this article! I currently use unrefined extra virgin coconut oil in the kitchen for cooking and on my hair, MCT oil in my diet, and fractionated cosmetic grade in the bathroom for my skin and face! It looks like i'll be putting some of the extra virgin coconut oil in the bathroom for my face to see if it works visibly differently than the fractionated! This article was very helpful for plotting uses! 🙂 Thanks!

    • Hi Kian, I think you're experiencing the "healing crisis" of coconut oil as you've started way too fast – 3 tablespoons a day.

      As for your sore throat, coconut oil generally does not cause that. Coconut oil helps with flu instead. It's actually due to you having eaten too much acidic food recently that promote viral infection and trigger sore throat. Think about what you have eaten these past few days and the answer will pop up instantly.

      Swelling to your neck may be the symptom of cleansing. You should now reduce your coconut oil intake to just 1 tablespoon per day (splitting into 3 separate teaspoons – 1 added to breakfast, 1 to lunch and 1 to dinner). Also, take more fruits and vegetables to help expel toxins and excess acidic components from your body. This will help improve your symptoms.

      After improvement, you should try to increase the amount of coconut oil progressively. Coconut oil is detoxing. You should never take it in large amount when you're getting started.
