How about Macadamia Nut Oil? Kukui Oil is a fantastic oil high in linoleic acid, oleic acid and in price! Mac Nut Oil is a great oil too, lots less expensive and not quite as good, but penny for penny, ounce for ounce, a better buy!

S., are you wanting to use it in soap or in a leave on product like a lotion? I have a fantastic source for CHEAP but quality RBO. Let me know. I have never used FCO even in my lotions and creams. It's a great oil for leave on products though. 8)

I can get some cheap RBO .. its for a leave on product. I was thinking the Frac coconut will leave a faint scent, which will throw off my FO added.
Is your source on the west coast or mid point? Ordering for the East is killing me... :)
