Actually, the finest coconut oil costs far less than a lubricant you buy at Whole Foods. A small tube of lubricant costs about 5 bucks and contains about 1.5 oz. of product. That's over $3.00 an ounce.
A quart (32 oz.) of Tropical Traditions' finest certified organic virgin coconut oil costs $25.00 -- less than $1.00 an ounce.
If you buy the organic expeller pressed coconut oil (still very pure and much healthier and safer than the lube you buy in stores), it's $18.00 a quart. That's only 50 cents an ounce -- one-sixth the price of the lubricant.
Plus, we've saved money by not having to buy antifungal medication for over a year!
