Use coconut oil in place of other oils in cooking.  It is ideal for use, having a high resistance to heat, and the ability to remain whole without losing its chemical composition despite exposure to high temperatures. Do not exceed 350 degrees and lower the temperature if the oil begins to smoke.

As a hair conditioner, it embellishes the hair, leaving it soft and silky.  In certain countries, the pulp is used as a balm to stimulate hair growth; a small amount of virgin coconut oil massaged into the scalp at night conditions both the hair and scalp. To cure dandruff, wet hair with warm water. Rub at least a tablespoon into hair and massage into scalp. Wrap head with a towel and leave on for at least two hours or overnight. Shampoo and rinse. Repeat when necessary.

As a massage oil and body lotion, it leaves skin soft and smooth, relieving dry skin itchiness and other skin diseases, making the skin supple. The elderly of the Philippines have used raw coconut oil as their before or after bath lotion for hundreds of years.

"The ideal lotion is one that not only softens the skin but also protects it against damage, promotes healing, and gives it a more youthful, healthy appearance. Pure coconut oil is the best natural skin lotion available. It prevents free-radical formation and the damage it causes. It can help prevent the skin from developing liver spots and other blemishes caused by aging and overexposure to sunlight. In some cases it can even restore damaged or diseased skin. It helps to keep connective tissues strong and supple so that the skin doesn’t sag and wrinkle. People with a variety of skin problems have experienced remarkable results from using coconut oil. Many people who have tried it won’t use anything else. When using coconut oil as a lotion, it is best to apply a small amount and reapply it as often as necessary. When first applied it may seem like you’re spreading a very oily substance on your skin, but because it is quickly absorbed, it doesn’t leave a layer of greasy film the way many commercial lotions and oil do. If you apply too much oil all at once, the skin becomes saturated and will not absorb it all. This will leave a greasy film. People with extremely dry skin need to reapply the oil often when they first start using it. The real benefit of coconut oil will come with repeated use over time. While other lotions temporarily soften dry skin, they won’t heal it. Coconut oil will gradually soften the skin, removing dead layers, and encourage the growth of new, healthier tissue. More information on using coconut oil on problem skin is found in the book by Bruce Fife, “ Coconut Cures”."

For foot fungus massage the oil on the feet and work it between the toes at least three times a day. This a great way to prevent and even treat foot fungus. Feet are often abused and neglected, causing them to be dry, cracked and infected. We receive many reports from people telling us how wonderful their feet look after using coconut oil.

Research and clinical observation have shown that medium-chain fatty acids, like those found in coconut oil, may help prevent and treat a wide range of diseases.

What is the Shelf Life of Extra VIRGIN Organic Coconut Oil?

Extra VIRGIN organic coconut oil has been known to not show any signs of rancidity even after 3 years. We even had people tell us of their oil showing no signs of rancidity even after 15 years of storage! No refrigeration is necessary.

Is Coconut Oil a Seed Oil?


No. Coconut oil is classified as a vegetable oil, even if the coconut fruit that matures is actually the seed from which the new coconut tree will grow from.

What is the difference between VIRGIN & COPRA?

If you buy regular coconut oil, chances are it came from dried copra. This usually sits in a warehouse and gets oiled after a few months. This is bleached and deodorized. This is why there is no coconut aroma. High heat is also used which is why this type of oil is yellowish in color.

Extra VIRGIN organic coconut oil is cold-pressed immediately upon opening of the coconut. The oil is extracted before the fermentation process sets in. It is normally bottled or packed within 8 hours from the time the nut is opened. This is not bleached nor deodorized, maintaining the freshness and the sweet coconut scent It will also be clear as water in liquid form because no high heat was used in it’s processing.

Some people still use the old fermentation process, which is expelling the coconut milk then letting the coconut milk sit for 20 to 36 hours to allow the natural fermentation process to separate the oil. This process turns the oil sour and has a short shelf life due to the high moisture content. This home made oil is all right for home use, if the oil will be used immediately. The shelf life of this type of oil is two weeks to a maximum of two months. This type of oil turns rancid in a short period of time because of the high moisture content.

What is Organic Extra VIRGIN Coconut Oil?

Organic Extra VIRGIN Coconut oil is Oil produced from a Certified Organic Farm . The process should have also been Certified as Organic. The processing plant is also inspected and certified to have used only food grade equipment, usually only stainless steel. That the processing is natural with no chemical preservatives or additives.

All Philippines coconut trees used to be ORGANIC. Today however, we are SAD to SAY that the Philippines Coconut Authority has started promoting the use of fertilizer on the coconut trees to improve the yield of nuts from the coconut trees.  

If you are purchasing Extra VIRGIN COCONUT OIL then the EVCO must be clear as water and have a sweet coconut scent. If is not clear as water and does not have a mild coconut aroma then you know it is not Extra VIRGIN COCONUT OIL.

Fermented Coconut Oil will have a Sour and Rancid smell. Some producers will also try to filter their fermented coconut in charcoal to try to remove the sour smell but instead that process gives the coconut a burnt smell and taste. In Dr. Bruce Fife’s book Coconut Cures he gives instructions how to ferment coconut milk if you want to make your own fermented coconut oil for healing purposes.  So, do a smell and taste test.  Not all Virgin coconut Oil are alike. Just like not all Coconuts are Organic.

We are proud to inform you that we are distributors for an Organic Coconut Plantation in the Philippines.   The Processing Plant has also been inspected and certified.

What are the attributes of Coconut Oil?

Coconut oil is one of the most stable oils and is highly resistant to rancidity.  It is the unsaturated fats in the common seed oils that are easily oxidized and susceptible to rancidity. It is stable because of its high proportion of saturated fats. Coconut oil is mild on the skin and is widely used in the tropics. Film-forming qualities allow it to act as a skin moisturizer and a protectant against moisture loss. Its natural detergency and lathering capabilities give a double purpose as a cleansing agent for soaps and shampoos.

Why don’t you use glass containers?

So as not to increase the cost of your Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, our packaging is in high quality USDA approved PETE plastic canisters. The PETE canisters are guaranteed to not add toxic materials to the oil. They are also safer than glass because they do not break and can be reused over and over again as canisters for other foods or more coconut oil! We know of no other company that supplies coconut oil in these wonderful easy to hold canisters. You’ll love them.
