    These all sound good but I use organic coconut oil…it really is better for your skin and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy like Olive oil.

    I bought coconut oil at our local ALDI last week. It is in the baking section. It is a wonderful skin treatment. Many thanks for stocking it.


      We live in a very rural area and that means not many shopping areas. My Mom has a mouth disorder she hurts and burns all the time. Someone told me to get coconut oil I have looked everywhere for this is it like cooking oik

    I also buy the coconut oil from Aldi’s. It’s great for making face cream, body lotion, body butter and sugar or salt scrub. It’s organic and also great for cooking. Please continue to carry it,thanks!
