Nut Report

It has been awhile since my last coconut post. I thought I would share some highlights and experiences. 

Jim and I have used the oil on our skin and in our food. We are addicted. 

I have placed low, wide-mouthed jars (actually glass sugar jars sold at Walmart) in our bathrooms. These jars are used by everyone who visits our home. Almost all of our family members are also using it on their own. Recently I have heard the following reports:

RL loves it on her face.  She was afraid of it causing blemishes at first.  It doesn't. 

JL loves it on his lips and up his nostrils.  I gave him a little plastic jar about the size of a lip balm container (also sold at Walmart) to use at the office.  He also took one for his bedside.  He claims he uses VCO on his hair and even took off the  everpresent baseball cap and had me feel for myself.  Not sure if he was joking or not, but I assure everyone it is GREAT for hair.

IQ asks for it on all her boo boos.  This reminds me of my childhood.  My mother put Nupercanol on all my boo boos.  Once, in kindergarten, I got my finger caught in a door and was wailing "I want NUPES!"  The teacher had to call my brother out of his 6th grade class to ask him what nupes was.  Tee Hee...Nupes was comfort!

 KF puts it on chapped hands and IQ's chapped legs.

ML said it gave him energy.

MH used it on his hands because all the lotions in the house smelled "girlie."  He liked it, except for the slippery palms.  I showed him how to rub a paper towel between his palms to take care of this issue.  You don't need to do this when putting it on before bed.  Your skin will drink it in.

EN gave her little purse stash to a co-worker who burned herself with hot coffee.

I feed it to our cats, our dog, and recently used it on my chickens. It  also smothered a gross parasite that was in the dog's skin - overnight!

Jim eats it every day on his toast with peanut butter.  We've used it to make popcorn, brownies, corn muffins, and garlic bread. Jim and I also drink coconut milk that I buy at Sunflower Market, made by So Delicious. I prefer the unsweetened. I mix it half and half with milk for Jim.

I make a daily smoothie for myself with 1 cup coconut milk, 1 banana. 1/2 tsp (approx) cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1 handful frozen blueberries, 1 handful frozen strawberries, 1 handful raspberries, and a handful of spinach.  YUM!  It must be consumed with a straw for the full effect.  The grand kids love it too.

Note:  I sometimes add unflavored protein powder.

My Father's Words

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Love never fails
