Just Google coconut oil healing and you'll find tonnes of info. You're most likely to find the best quality at a health food store. Look for organic virgin coconut oil. It's not cheap though. I paid 30$ for a 720ml jar, but it does last a while.

I agree with Luckypenny. Purchase it from a health food store and make sure it says "organic virgin coconut oil" on the label. The one I bought says "100% pure certified" and "organic premium virgin" on it and it cost $18.95 for 450 ml.

Red face coconut oil

You can by it at any health food store-Extra Virgin coconut Oil (preferably organic) I have just started using it about a month ago. Definately gives my older dog more energy, has also stopped her itchy skin....

I have some of this, it is great in baked goods! I got it at a Wild Oats store, probably other stores that carry organic goods would have it.

I'm really thinking about getting this for me and my kitties.

How long have you been using it? Vlad had a big problem with ear mites up until about 3 weeks ago and I read cleaning their ears once a week with this keeps them away.

I got mine at a natural foods store (Whole Foods). I wish it wasn't so pricey. I haven't seen any difference in Sable, but she doesn't get it every day because it is expensive. I also put it on Lobo's nose sometimes, he tends to get a dry nose and I like to use the coconut oil because even if he licks it off it won't hurt him. And I used it as lipgloss once when I ran out. Yummy coconut.

Gee, now I'm wondering about the stuff I got this afternoon. I went to the health food store near my office and got a 14 oz jar of organic coconut oil for $4.99. It was on sale, and from a company called Tree of Life, which I looked up and looks like a good company.

I'm wondering if I got the wrong thing.

does actual coconut have any benefit or would you have to eat too much to get the same level of benefit as the concentrated oil?
