  1. Yes, I like using olive or coconut oil on my legs, so when we travel, I pack coconut oil which is more condensed with less chance of leakage. The bonus is when we have a grill available with a vacation condo, we can use a little on the grill instead of buying a spray. The cat we used to have knew my bedtime routine and would wait by the bathroom door for his coconut oil snack!

  2. Is your emailing service working properly? I’m entering my email correctly and I’m getting a “please enter a value” message :/
