Fractionated Coconut Oil Review



You have probably seen coconut oils while shopping in grocery stores, which is mostly used for frying foods. Fractionated Coconut Oil is a fraction of oil that has been compressed from coconuts. The oil is then steam distilled to remove fatty acids from it. The end result is an odorless coconut oil that can be used on your skin.

This type of oil is also known as a "carrier oil" as it can help essential oils absorb into the skin. A "carrier oil" can be used to dilute highly concentrated essential oils, as applying these essential oils directly to your skin can be harmful.

Besides from being a "carrier oil," Coconut Oil can also be used as a massage oil and as a aromatherapy oil. You can also use the oil in baths, vaporizers (great for sinuses), a hot compress, mud masks and lotions.


This is the first massage oil that I have tried out and for the most part I do like the Coconut Oil, though it would have been nice if it had some sort of scent to it. Then again, I could always add a drop of lavender oil to give it a nice scent. I've been wanting to use the oil in a seaweed mask, but I haven't had time to try it out that way yet. However, I have used it as a massage oil on my shoulders and neck. As as a massage oil, it is pretty relaxing and it really hydrates your skin. Overall, I have enjoyed using the Fractionated Coconut Oil and I recommend it to others.

The Coconut Oil can be purchased on Amazon.com.
