Raw, Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil! Ultra creamy in glass.
 
Coconut Oil is known for its healthy saturated fats, which are even better for you in its raw form.
 
There is a reason coconut oil has reached celebrity status, and it’s not just it’s delicious taste!
- Boosts your immunity, improves hair, skin care, digestion and many other health benefits.
- Abundant Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's)  - excellent fuel source and brain food.
- A natural source of (good) saturated fat, packed with nutrition and a fantastic alternative to plant based oils.
- A high smoke point makes me ideal for cooking.
- PLUS you can also use me on your body and in your hair for all over nourishment!
 
Taste: 
- Coconutty, for a fragrant coconut flavour. With a slight nutty taste, this versatile oil can be added to sweet or savoury dishes and is a great addition to your morning smoothie!
 
Thailand vs Sri Lankan flavour:
We have found that oil from Thailand is great for raw desserts and sweet treats which require more delicate flavours. Whereas Sri Lankan oil is perfect for curries and coconutty dishes and desserts. 
 
Production: By using a centrifuge filtration system we ensure our oil is free from impurities and of the best quality available.
Our raw oil is 100% Certified Organic and is made by HACCAP certified suppliers in Sri Lanka.
 
How to use:
- Coconut Oil can be used in a variety of ways. The most beneficial way for us to consume Coconut Oil is as a replacement to processed oils and fats.
- Use Coconut Oil as a replacement to margarine and butter on sandwiches, add it to smoothies for a dose of healthy fats, or spread it on crackers and eat as is.
- Coconut Oil is considered to be a stable oil. With a smoking temperature of 177 degrees Celsius, Coconut Oil can also be used for medium heat frying and baking. Coconut Oil has a light and refreshing taste that will not over power your dishes, making it suitable for a wide variety of applications. Try it on homemade popcorn!
- Coconut Oil can be used to moisturise the skin – simply apply some to your body after a shower for a soft creamy feeling. It is also used as a natural make-up remover.
- Coconut Oil is a great hair conditioner – apply generously before going to bed and wash it off in the morning for healthy and luxurious tresses

Health Benefits - more detail:
Coconut oil is known for its Lauric acid content, and for its quality, healthy saturated fats. Cholesterol does not naturally occur in the plant kingdom. Unlike saturated animal fats, Coconut oil is cholesterol free, making it safe for people with cholesterol challenges. Lauric acid promotes immune function through its transformation into monolaurin once ingested. Studies show that Monolaurin is able to destroy lipid coate
d viruses and bacteria including influenza, herpes and HIV.

Weight Loss:
Medium Chain triglycerides (MCT's) are abundantly found in coconut butter/oil. Unlike other forms of fat, the liver is able to metabolise MCT's similarly to how it utilises carbohydrates as a fuel source. Coconut butter/oil's digestibility means that it is quickly absorbed by our bodies, and not left to circulate the blood stream like other fats. The MCT's in coconut oil have also been shown to have thyroid supporting mechanisms. Studies that were conducted on the basal (resting) metabolic rate of people who ate MCT's comparative to those participants who consumed more LCT's (long chain triglycerides i.e. vegetable oils) were found on average to have a 12% increase in their basal metabolic rates.

Cellular Health:
Our body's cells are comprised primarily of saturated fats. Regular consumption of Coconut Butter/Oil promotes cellular health reducing oxidative damage from free radical exposure. Internal cellular protection translates externally to healthier, more hydrated, younger looking skin.
