Unrefined virgin coconut oil is the best when you are going to ingest the product.  Sam's club has the best deal on unrefined virgin coconut oil, I suggest going there if you use it regularly.  What I use for my face, body and hair is a brand that I picked up at Whole Foods, I will post a picture of that on Instagram.  I hope this post was informative and I would love to hear how you all use coconut oil so leave me a comment!

Until next time Loves!
