I was so excited to get this in the mail last week that I used it right away and have been almost every day. This oil has been great cooking with. I’ve made many different dishes with it so far. I like that fact that it doesn’t leave a bad after taste. The flavors of some of my dishes didn’t change. But in others you can kind of taste just a little bit of a coconutty taste but it wasn’t bad at all. It actually enhanced the dishes. I do have to say tho that a little goes a long way. You don’t need a lot when you are sauteing dishes.
I’ve also used this oil as a moisturizer and my skin and hair fell in love. Both my skin and hair has been super soft. I plan on making my own body lotion/butter, face moisturizer and hair conditioner/moisturizer.
The oil comes in a solid form but melts pretty quickly. It is made from fresh organic coconuts from the Philippines and is not made from any kind of machinery. They come from the coconut farmers in the Philippines and is all made the old fashion way.
My over all experience with this coconut oil has been GREAT! I love coconut oil and if you haven’t tried it, you should. Below you’ll find that you too can have a chance to try it by entering the giveaway!
