Re: Carriers for Oils or Beauty
Coconut oil is awesome, and finally being recognized for its therapeutic value.
As Ali said, the Virgin coconut does "freeze" at 70 degrees, but when combined with other carriers will stay liquid (we especially like it with Tamanu, Hemp or Borage).
As you mention about the aroma, that has to do with freshness. A very fresh coconut oil
has really hardly any noticeable aroma at all (such as that from Ananda). Before it was carried by Ananda, I had very mixed results from what I thought were "high end" store brands. Some weren't even useable.
It's really great for hair care, too. Research has come out that regular scalp massage with virgin coconut oil will help your hair grow if yours is thinning, and in better condition generally in any case.
