If you use it, do you use the raw, virgin kind, or the expeller pressed?

The kind I got is Spectrum brand organic expeller pressed coconut oil. Doesn't say virgin. I found some Artisana brand that says is organic, virgin, and raw. It seems to work much better and smells coconutty, the Spectrum one doesn't smell like coconut at all.

Yeah refined coconut oil doesn't have that smell. I use Spectrum brand as well, but since it's unrefined it's got that nice coconut smell.
