I just made bath salts for my 1st time. I used coconut oil to keep the essenence oils from irritating the skin. I bought from Hobby Lobby. Like coconut milk, it has a solid mass until you heat it. I’ve got Coconut Oil that I bought for frying at the grocer. Is that the same stuff?
Thanks for your time!!
