How do I use it?

Quality & Provenance

The coconuts used to produce our coconut oil are harvested from organic plantations in Sri Lanka. These coconut estates offer employment to local people, especially women who have the opportunity to work close to their homes, being employed as lab technicians, accountants and cleaning personnel. We are proud to be associated with an organisation which takes such an ethical stance, operating with consideration for the local community.

Coconuts are produced all year round so there is no annual harvest; mature drupes must be cut down by hand using a machete. They are then cut open to remove the tough outer husk which can be burned for fuel. The drupe inside is then shelled, and the white fleshy kernel inside separated to be washed. Dried coconut meat is called copra – low quality coconut oils are made from this dried copra which must be processed using heat and chemicals to extract the oil. Our Coconut Oil is only made from fresh, moist coconut meat which can be cold pressed to produce the finest virgin coconut oil.

The cleaned kernel is simply mechanically cold pressed until it exudes the rich oil which can be collected and purified through simple filtration and centrifugation so that only the purest coconut oil makes it into the finished product. Coconut oil is ideal for cooking with, as the molecules are stable enough to withstand heat without becoming oxidised.

perfect in treating post menopausal symptoms

having suffered many water infections due to vaginal atrophy after menopause started using this product as a moisture internally it has proved to be a lifesaver for me no symptoms in past 7 months my only wish is that it came in pessary form.

Fantastic taste

I was really surprised at how easy it was to substitute oil for coconut oil, it tastes great and is healthier for you. It's organic too so at this price I am happy with the value.
