Fractionated Coconut Oil
I had not heard of Fractionated Coconut Oil before getting the opportunity to review it. It’s a very versatile oil that can be used for many different things.
Fractionated coconut oil is a more stable form of coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed making it an absolutely saturated oil. This gives the coconut oil a very long shelf life and an increased stability. Because of this chemical change, it gives the fractionated coconut oil a more antioxidant and disinfecting effect.
This fractionated coconut oil is great as a carrier oil for aromatherapy and essential oils. Because it’s always a liquid, it makes getting those oils to the right place. Add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to make a antibacterial foot moisturizer. Or add a favorite essential oil for a sensual massage oil.
It’s good for moisturizing dry hair because of its liquidity. You can rub it right into your hair or mix it with other items like honey. It doesn’t have to be melted like non-fractionated coconut oil. It also makes a great oil for cooking because it’s consistency. The stable shelf life means that it’s not going to go rancid as quickly as other oils.
Use coconut oil on your cuticles for healthy nails and soft hands. Coconut oil mixed with baking soda can be used to exfoliate your face and brighten your skin. Rub in a circular pattern and rinse off with lukewarm water. Pat dry.
You can mix brown sugar and coconut oil for a great lip exfoliater or rub the coconut oil right on your dry lips for a rehydrating lip balm. You can melt the last of your favorite lip stick with some coconut oil for a new lip tint. I use coconut oil to remove my waterproof mascara instead of baby oil.
Brown sugar or salt and fractionated coconut oil make a great shower scrub for bright, shiny skin. You can use some of the coconut oil in your bath to moisturize your skin. I like to use it as a moisturizer on my skin after my shower. The coconut oil makes my skin nice and supple.
Treat leather, polish wood furniture, season cast iron cookware, and more! This is one of the most versatile oils you can own. A search will yield you hundreds of uses for fractionated coconut oil. I’m not sure what I did before I had it.
