So, tell me about your oils...
Currently my family is taking Blue Ice Therapeutics (HVCLO and BO combo). We like it, but I'm wondering if it's enough BO. How much BO (in milligrams) do you take (and your kids)? I like the convience of it being combined, and the total doses are only a couple milliliters. At this point here's the breakdown:

Butter Oil
kids 100-200mg a day
DH 300-400mg
Me 400-500mg

Vit A doses
kids 5000-10000IU
DH 15000-20000IU
Me 20000-25000IU

Vit D doses
kids 500-1000IU
DH 1500-2000IU
Me 2000-2500IU
(BTW- we're in FL, so we have plenty o' sunshine )

Does this sound good?

Now my question about Coconut oil- what's your favorite brand? I've been using Nutiva Organic EV CO (cold-pressed, unrefined). It's kinda expensive though. Let me know your favorite and where you order from; was looking at the EVCO on the Mountain Herbs link above. Any thoughts?

TIA! hale:

Not sure about the CLO, we just ordered the Blue Ice CLO and it hasnt gotten here yet. We are dairy free, so the BO is out.

As far as the CO goes, I really like Nutiva, but just ordered 2 gallons from Tropical Traditions. I got a discount and the CC was B1G1 free.

FWIW,

Don't know about doses but I just got some Mountain Rose EVCO and it's fine. I just finished a bottle of Nutiva and I haven't noticed a difference between the two. Granted I'm new at this so my taste for CO isn't exactly refined.
