Rhonda, if you intend using coconut oil as a tanning agent can I suggest you don't - it's like frying a chicken, and is a known factor in skin cancer. Use spf sunblock instead, you'll still get a tan but you won't burn and cause cell damage.
If you decide to take your won, don't forget there are restrictions on carrying liquids and gels on international flights. You're restricted to 100mls in carry-on baggage.
