I have read about Monoi Oil on this discussion board many times and have used it as a deep conditioner for dry/damaged hair.

As we know, Monoi Oil is basically coconut oil that has been steeped with flowers. Some people I know would like to try it but are allergic to scents.

During my travels on the web, I found a site that sells "fractionated" coconut oil. Fractionated oil is tasteless, colorless, odorless, and has an unlimted shelf life.

If this interests you, go to http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/ From the navigation menu on the left, select FIXED OILS AND BUTTERS, about half way down you will find "coconut oil - fractionated".

I have not personally used this supplier but those that have expressed high satisfaction with them and their products.

At 16 oz. for $6.95, it is certainly worth a look.

Thank you Merlin. Great link.

I have to tell you, the more I research oils, the more I discover that needs to be discovered. :-)

By the way, have you ever read anything by Viktoras Kulvinskas? I have been rereading my old copy of Life in The 21st Century and wondering whatever happened to him?

Best wishes,
Karen

Hi Budokan,

Wow. I bought Survival almost 20 years ago. It is interesting to see that it is still around. Although I bought my original copy for $8.95 and now it is $26.95. :-)

I also have his Life In The 21st Century which was the follow-up book to Survival and it is full of letters from people that have tried various things mentioned in the Survival book.

I have to admit that it is all fascinating to me.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,
Karen

Hello Karen,

Glad I could provide you with the information you were looking for.

My wife got the book "Survival" as a gift so I guess you could say I`m a fan by association. I do find his theories interesting though.

Have a nice one! ;)

Hi Budokan,

What I am most fascinated with are the different photos of him as he tried the different types of food plans. I was especially intriqued with how he looked after being on an all fruit diet.

I have tried all fruit diets and the thing I miss the most if "crunchy". Yeah, I know apples are crunchy but after several days on just fruit I miss those horrible foods like chips & hot sauce. After all I do live in Texas. :-)

Best wishes,
Karen

I can relate to your last statement, Karen. After a few days of fruits and veggies, the smell of french fries and cinnabuns seems to be all around me! Those food courts are killers! ;)

Hi Budokan,

The funny thing is that even though I know that potatoes are bad for me personally, I can not resist baked potatoes and French fries. Sugar is also one of my cravings although chocolate is probably the worst. :-) And no, carob is just not the same for me. :-( I know that all these yummy foods are not good for my health, skin and hair so I try to indulge only every once in awhile.

Best wishes,
Karen

Hi Karen,

I am with you on that one. Sometimes I get an overwhelming urge and NOTHING will do but the real thing. Amazing, isn`t it? And you are so right about carob - just not the same thing at all. Sometimes nothing will do but a chocolate shake. I, too, try to hold it to a minimum. No sense in turning the lower 40 into the lower 80 if you know what I mean. ;)

Have a good one!

Hi Budokan,

Yeah...lower 40 into the lower 80...definitely a scary thought. :-)

Another food that just doesn`t substitue IMO is tofu. When I lived in St. Louis (no, not a Rams fan) a guy I know had a tofu store. He manufactured tofu and he always brought tofu dishes to social events. One time he brought a peanut butter tofu pie. Everyone was raving how much it tasted like a peanut butter treat but between you and me it tasted nothing like a dessert. It had a really heavy ...well...tofu taste. UGH.

His next attempt was chocolate tofu pie. Even worse because he used carob...the fake chocolate.

Give me a Godiva truffle any day and let my skin break out for a good cause. :-)

Best wishes,
Karen
