NATURAL IN NATURE
Our Coconut Oil is 100% raw and natural so it comes in solid form, especially if left in a much cooler environment. This is perfectly normal but if you would like it softened, place your jar of Coconut Oil in a bowl of warm water.
You should soon find the Coconut Oil becomes softer, once it's reached your desired consistency, use a spoon to take out how much you need.
PRIMAL PANTRY APPROVED
Coconut oil is the number 1 thing you should stock up on for your pantry when living primally. This is because coconut oil is absolutely packed full of medium-chain triglycerides which are good fats. When consumed, they turn almost immediately into fuel to help the body convert body fat into energy. Much of these properties are down to the fact that their shorter chain length, they travel pretty quickly from the digestive tract to the liver, where they can quickly be converted to energy or morphed into ketones.
Our top coconut oil uses:
- Hair mask
- Food supplement
HEALTHY COOKING OIL THAT TASTES GREAT
Our coconut oil is cold pressed at the very lowest temperature possible. Whilst this provides a smaller yield, it makes for an exceptional quality oil, and you can really taste the difference.
Coconut oil will soon become your flexible friend that lives in the kitchen, bathroom and your handbag. As well as creating gorgeous primal foods – Thai curry, add to smoothies or even just as a replacement for lining baking tins.

SKIN AND HAIRCARE WITHOUT THE CHEMICALS
Crammed with plenty of helpful and healthy fats, coconut oil is a brilliant moisturiser for both hair and skin. Lauric acid is full of antibacterial properties, which will benefit both hair and skin. Because coconut oil can penetrate deep into the skin and hair shaft, it will lock in moisture very effectively, as well as the other benefits found from coconut oil, including its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Coconut oil is becoming a popular natural makeup remover and many beauty and skin care experts swear by switching all their skin care products to just 1 tub of coconut oil.
If you aren’t sure about applying coconut oil to your face, it will certainly take care of any areas of dry skin elsewhere on the body, such as elbows or cracked heels. Some people even use it as an effective shaving cream!
Its gorgeous scent makes it a popular hair conditioning treatment, too. It works best on the ends of your hair, applying to hair for 30 minutes to 1 hour before washing out with a natural shampoo.
