Link to A Disgusting Anecdote & Friendly Reminder

  I was moisturizing my face with a my jojoba/argan/lavender essential oil blend several nights ago when I discovered something altogether horrifying: there was mold growing in the oil mixture I had been applying to my face night after night.

Link to Coconut Oil: Refined vs Unrefined

I've always heard that unrefined coconut oil is the way to go when it comes to cooking, and this makes plenty of sense.  Apparently the polyphenols in coconut oil, which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, are damaged during the refining process. I've also read that the proteins/minerals are significantly diminished after being refined.

 But because it was the cheaper option at the health food store, I've been moisturizing my body with organic refined coconut oil for the past couple of weeks. Common sense tells me...
