If you suffer from extra dry skin, try adding some of this oil into your soap, lotion or cream recipes. It's absorbed quickly into the skin, making it a wonderful soothing oil - or you can use it as-is directly on your skin for immediate relief of that dry, chapped-skin feeling. If you made cold processed soap, this is one of the "better" oils to use for superfatting. To do so, I use about 1 tablespoon per 5 pounds of soap.
