Organic Coconut Oil
In Sanskrit the Coconut Palm is known as the "Kalpa vriksha" which means "the tree that supplies all that is needed to live".
Coconut oil and coconut butter are actually the same thing - the creamy white butter becomes a clear oil when heated above about 25 degrees Celcius.
As the climate in the UK is generally cold this oil will solidify at room temperature.
Simply pop the tub (with the lid on) into a bowl of hot water and it will turn back into a liquid.
If using to moisturize skin - the warmth of your hands will melt the butter.
There are so many uses for this lovely tub of Coconut Butter that you might want to buy more than one at a time and use:
For Oil Pulling - a practise from Ayurvedic medicine that involves swishing oil in your mouth for a time. Benefits
reported evidently range from curing gingivitis, healthier pink gums, weight loss, increased energy, clearer
sinuses, decreased allergies, better sleep, decreased migraine headaches. First thing in the morning before
breakfast swish about a tablespoon of oil slowly around the mouth, do not swallow, spit out after 10 - 15 minutes.
Rinse mouth out well and brush with a natural toothpaste afterwards.
For eating and adding to smoothies, salad dressings, raw Cacao Chocolate Recipes, delicious mixed in with Cacao
and Maca when making homemade RAW Chocolates), Raw cakes and cookies.
It has been used as a skin moisturizer for thousands of years and its antiseptic elements keep the skin healthy and
youthful. Add a drop of your favourite essential oil to the Coconut Butter / Oil.
For use as a suntan lotion - I have quite fair skin and this works wonderfully to give me a healthy brown glow and
lovely soft moisturised skin! However, be sensible - STAY OUT OF THE MIDDAY SUN - I don't go tanning
between the hours of about 11:30 and 15:00 hrs. It seems that Coconut Oil works better as a suntan lotion if
you are also using it in your diet.
For use a hair conditioner - use on just the ends of the hair, or put on overnight and wash out the next morning.
For use when cooking - Coconut Butter / Oil is one of the most stable of all oils and because it is a completely
saturated fat it does not turn to dangerous trans fats when cooked. THEREFORE it is the ONLY oil you should
EVER consider using if you do cooking or frying. Do your health and wellbeing the greatest service and buy a tub
of this coconut oil and keep it next to your cooker at all times.
