I bought a jar of coconut oil about six months ago. I've used it for baking and love it. However, I most enjoy the 'beauty' benefits using it on my face, neck, and arms and as a hair/scalp dressing. I have not used it for sauteing or frying. Would coconut oil be suitable or should I stick with vegetable/canola/peanut oil? How/what do you use coconut oil? (Yes, I did view the old threads on coconut oil, however I'm sure over the years there are new ideas and uses to be shared.) Thanks, everyone!
