For those of you who would jump and comment about how "unhealthy" saturated fats are, go and do your reading first. I mean the science, not the brainwashing current politics.

Absolutely 100% correct, IMHO too. Organic isn't inexpensive but it really is lovely stuff, goes a long way and has a lot of uses, some of which have already been mentioned. I buy my organic coconut oil 10 litres at a time, yes a 10 litre "jerry can" and it lasts us for about 2 years which, coincidently, is its shelf life. Buying it 10 litres at a time is certainly the best value I can find and worked out about £11 per litre the last time I bought some which was about a year past.

It's delicious in your cooking, particularly adding a little something to the likes of a curry or any spicy food. It's great for doing your roasties and basically any cooking where you would use oil. If you make smoothies, then adding a teaspoon full really lifts the flavours.

Sure, it's not a cheap option but if you read up on the way that many of the food oils behave when heated (for cooking or when manufactured), you may also agree that coconut is the way to go.

Aside from food, because it melts at around 25C, it's a great massage oil, a little goes a long way, it's fun and everything slides up, down and around very nicely. Lovely for hair, as it leaves it smelling nice and also imparts a sheen to it. Makes a great skin conditioner as it leaves hands and feet, not just those other bits, smooth and supple.

You can probably tell, I'm a bit of a fan of coconut oil and have been for quite a few years. No, I don't sell it but I do have my sources. ;)

Not only that but it's great to massage some in when you've washed your hair and it's still damp - but only if you haven't used conditioner. :)

Got to get some because my hair is possibly the driest on the planet. Every time I brush it I lose it! Great!

When I have used pure coconut oil before it doesn't smell of coconut, I didn't think it was supposed to?

I acknowledge at this price you do not get the quality of a virgin organic coconut oil, but believe me, it is still much better that any other oil for cooking, as it does not modifies its chemical structure while heated.

The pure coconut oil does not smell of coconut, only the virgin one does.

Does anyone have an recommendations for an organic virgin coconut oil that isn't too expensive? I used to work in a shop that sold it, but even with my discount it would end up being £12-£14 for a jar. If anyone who uses it could point me in the right direction that would be great!

I agree that this is a great price still! Where I worked used to sell the non-organic one for much, much more! I keep hearing all the benefits so I really want to invest in some, seems like the organic is the better option but if I cannot find one in my price range then I might give this a go :)

I only use virgin coconut oil and it has a delightful coconut fragrance. Never understood how virgin oils always cost more than refined, you would think they would be cheaper as less processing needed. I guess when refining oils they can extract more quantity using chemicals etc.

You might want to try the coconoil website!

...or £8.99 for 690ml at http://www.realfoods.co.uk/product/23602/essential-organic-virgin-coconut-oil-690ml
Not sure what the differences are in brands but realfoods has a bunch of different ones.

Holland & Barrett might be an option. I think the first jar was £12 and the second half price. I forget if it was 500 or 600ml. If it's in the penny sale that would be even better.

There have been a couple of free coconut oil books in the Kindle store this week but they seem to be back to full price now.

Pure coconut oil is a little known marvel for its medical properties. Our son had terrible cradle cap after he was born and friend recommended this to us...........well the results were amazing, Just warm some in your hands and massage it into the scalp before bed time (don't worry it doesn't stain clothes ect) and within a week you will see a fresh healthy scalp appearing! I have also been told it works on eczema as well but have not needed to try that.

I have used this brand, it is chemical extraction you can tell by the non coconut smell, I wouldn't say its great. However Coconut oil (virgin cold pressed) is the oil of Gods IMPO its list of benefits are massive, anti fungal, anti microbial, great for sun screen, hair, moisturiser (best to use before bed and leave over night) the quickest way to get into a keto state (any paleo/bodybuilders) thanks to its medium chain triglyceride content, they use it as a last resort with people with epilepsy etc etc etc,

Oh and the whole sat fat cholesterol thing is OLD science, made up by Ancel Keys who was a serious fraud, he has since been debunked, if one has kept up with the times (which lots of doctors havent) the facts are the lipid hypothesis was as useless as was his other invention the BMI index, which classed Arnold Schwarzenegger as obese lol

Please advise where 10 ltr containers are bought?????

That is where I used to work in fact :p It was around £16 for a jar of the organic virgin coconut oil, the own-brand tub I believe is not organic or cold pressed unfortunately. At least I could never see it on the labeling (a lot of customers would ask). Thank you for your help though!

I once worked with a Jamaican guy on a job in Bermuda and he smelled gorgeous!
It was the coconut oil that he used on his hair and skin, and his skin was flawless, so it must work.
If it doesn't, y'all still get to smell eatable! :3

coconoil is not particularly good coconut oil for the price, even if it's cheaper than others. try 'tiana' brand from holland and barrett or 'viridian' for a quality coconut oil, imo. these are both fully raw products, unlike the coconoil. if on tighter budget, 'biona' organic also do a raw coconut oil that is miles better than the coconoil and available in small 200ml jars.

Don't use virgin coconut oil for roasting or anything with high heat on the hob. It has a very low smoke point, lower than extra virgin olive oil, meaning it will produce carcinogens in your food. Only use extra virgin olive or virgin coconut on low-medium on the stove and less than 170c/350f/gas mark 3-4 in the oven. Although it's refined, (refined oils have a higher smoke point) Mild and Light Olive Oil is best for higher temps as it has a higher smoke point of 240c/gas 9. I use all 3 depending on temps.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoke_point

Biona usually sell 800g tubs of organic virgin coconut oil for £13 on amazon but it seems that the price has recently gone up =[
If anyone lives nearby, Unicorn grocery in Chorlton Manchester sell 200g for £3.
