      Post Hey, I'm new to this forum

      Nice to meet you all, you can just call me ren. I haven't posted on a forum in about 10 years so I'm a bit rusty. I'm only here to ask about fractionated coconut oil and it's relation to vivid, sometimes lucid dreams. I've discovered this use out of mere coincidence. I bought it to put on my face when I saw a red blemish on it because I heard it's good for treating skin conditions. When I left it on my face without washing it off, I went to sleep. I had one of the most vivid dreams I have ever had in my life. This was about 5 months ago. I woke up extremely groggy. The dream felt like it lasted for hours - it wasn't broken up in to little pieces like most of my dreams. It felt very odd yet amazing. It can't be placebo because I've tried it again and again and get the same results. Sorry if I worded this odd, it's late for me and I am... tired.

      I should add that I have had sleep paralysis with this applied to my face.

      Hey Ren! Welcome to the forum!!
      I haven't heard about coconut oil being good for vivid dreams or lucid dreaming that way. It may help if you ingest it. I think it is just a mere coincidence and there is something else that you are doing that may cause those dreams.

      I'm really not sure if there is any true evidence to support that it does. Where have you heard this from?

      Be careful What you read online. Here is a good example of it... Someone I knew was taking medicine for an infection and they read somewhere online that they needed to avoid Caffeine or anything with sugar while on this kind of medicine.
      Finally, go to a creditable source and think Critical.

      Btw, what you try coconut to treat skin conditions/ try to induce a lucid dream, only to find out that you are allergic?

      I didn't hear it from anyone. I tried researching the effects of coconut oil and it's relation to causing vivid dreams but I couldn't find anything substantial other than it's used for aroma therapy. This is all merely my experience with the coconut oil itself. You can not ingest the handcraft blends fractionated coconut oil. It's for topical use only. I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried it, to be honest... or if anyone would try it and report back to me. I can assure you that it does have some effect on me and my dreams. I've done countless tests. I'll end this by saying I am not allergic to anything so I highly doubt it's an allergic reaction and if I am allergic to any substance, it sure as heck isn't coconut oil.

      I meant edible coconut oil!
      How well do you know that it may work everyone? May work for you but, other people. I'm skeptical about it (IMO)
      You may also want to do more research on Dreaming and meditation.
      Aromatherapy may help you relax, to fall asleep and some face probablems but, I would not just rely on Aromatherapy alone when it comes to having vivid Or even lucid dreaming. Extreme grogginess can be anything...

      Hi and welcome to Dream Views. Glad you are here.

      Interesting thing you're doing. I think that most things applied topically are not strong enough to affect something internal (such as dreaming) to any noticeable degree (especially with only a small amount applied to the face). I think it's more likely something else going on, or coincidence. Especially if there's nothing on it research wise. But who knows. Thanks for sharing your findings.

      I hope you enjoy the forums. Please have a look around. Perhaps you might be interested in our Tasks of the Month and Tasks of the Year group events, or our Lucid Dreaming Book Club.

      See you around!

      Hello and welcome! interesting coco experience. In my case I grow my own herbs. lemon grass and lemon balm for vividness, and mug-worth for dream recall are really effective for me.

      Enjoy the journey at DV!

      Lemon grass and lemon balm for vividness? I never heard of that. And you grow your own mugwort? Oh my. I would love to do that. My hesitation with mugwort has to do with scientific articles showing it absorbs lead (and other heavy metals) from the soil like no one's business - mainly only a concern if you drink it very frequently though. So, it's tricky because you don't want to buy mugwort from unclean areas, and it does often come from outside the U.S. I'm wondering if growing it myself would be a safer option since I want to drink it daily or almost daily. Hmmmm. Food for thought.

      OK back on topic.

      Very interesting. I have used coconut oil internally for dreaming purposes, but it never really did anything. I never thought about applying it to the skin, but that seems like something to try. [Note to self: must try coconut oil applied to face]

      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      I used to do skin creams and soaps as a short-term hobby, using coconut oil a lot (the default cheapest type, not fractionated and not food grade). I don't recall any effects from it.

      If you are going to do this you may want also would want to take notes of your sleep cycle/ what else happened before you used the coconut oil too, I wonder how it would affect your sleep patterns? I mean extreme grogginess can be from anything.

      Indeed moon and once in your yard is very invasive, do not recommend for every day use, even the lemon grass...every human body reacts differently to certain herbs, that's for sure. I agree on the importance of doing research, learn about the side effects, and do your micro-dosing for every herb..What works for some may not work for others. Moderation is very important too.
