Coconut oil goes on the skin greasy, but if you wait a few minutes it absorbs well.

It's a great moisturizer for people and pets, and a superfood, imo. But a word of warning, it might keep you awake at night if you apply a lot to your skin before bed. It is a metabolism booster and in large quantities, either eaten or applied to the skin, it has an energizing effect.

If you want it scented with something in addition to coconut, it's an easy fix. Melt it, put it in a jar, and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil (I like lemongrass)

I love the stuff and have been using it for a few years now. I buy Nutiva. Amazon has great prices, especially when you do auto shipment.
