Our story… why we source and supply organic Coconut Oil

Our organic, cold pressed Coconut Oil is sourced from Sri Lanka. Wanting to provide the best quality, organic Coconut Oil available as a form of plant-based fats for her family, Cyndi spent a long period of time researching the product from various importers and producers which included checking certifications for authenticity and organics, and testing samples in various cooking methods and blind taste testing.

We used and tested this oil for six months prior to launching, with fantastic results. Unanimously, this oil was not only the best tasting coconut oil but also the one that was produced organically, with certification and with the least amount of heat used during processing.  Glass jars have been specifically selected for packaging our coconut oil as glass is much safer against leaching and has the added benefit of being recyclable or can be used to store other products in your pantry once the oil is finished.

 

The difference between coconut oil and coconut fat

There is some confusion about what is coconut oil and coconut fat. Basically they are the same thing, it just depends what temperature they stand at.

        • In the summer, the coconut oil/fat in your pantry may be a clear liquid (thus called an oil) if above 24oC.
        • In the winter, the coconut fat/oil will usually be a white opaque solid (thus called a fat).
        • Just a note that not all coconut oils are equal. Some are manufactured not using fresh coconut but rather copra (hydrogenated dry coconut flakes). These flakes are refined, bleached and deodorised which leaves the oil odourless, colourless and tasteless when extracted. The refining of the oil process uses chemical distillation dependent on lye or other harsh solvents.
        • Make sure your oil in non hydrogenated or non partially hydrogenated and that nothing has been added to it or taken away. Also look to see that it has not been fractionated or interesterified. Most fractionated coconut oil is used in the cosmetic industry rather than in the food industry.
        • Please note some slight yellow colour may appear at the bottom of the jar, this is perfectly edible.Our Coconut Oil is a completely natural product and as a cold pressed oil it contains very fine particles of coconut (produced during the grating and pressing process). Most of this is removed by sedimentation – or “racking”. The oil is racked (settle it and pour off the clear oil) several times, from production to final export. However, there is always a little bit of sediment left which is just tiny pieces of coconut. This takes the form of a slight cloudiness if the jar is shaken up when the oil is liquid, but it is very edible. It is removed in industrial production by large scale filters and high speed centrifuges – not at all natural processes. The coconut sediment collects at the bottom of the jar when the oil has been liquid for a period and becomes visible as a golden tinge – especially once the oil has gone solid and white again.

Serving suggestions

Use coconut oil as your everyday cooking oil. Add to your baking recipes or dishes, chocolate making and smoothies. A great moisturiser for your skin and hair.

Storage instructions

Store in cool, dark place. May solidify in cool temperatures. All natural, thus, some golden-brown ‘coconut fines’ may settle at the bottom of the jar appearing golden and cloudy. This is perfectly harmless and edible.

Sunscreen

 

 Make your own!

·         2 Tbsp Changing Habits Coconut Oil (SPF factor 4-6)

·         1 Tbsp Shea butter or cacao butter

·         1/2 tsp sesame oil (SPF factor 2)

Warm your coconut oil then mix thoroughly all ingredients into the oil. Once mixed pour into a suitable container and keep in your bathroom. If you live in a cold climate then you could almost use it as a stick, but seeing most homes are at around 25C I suggest that you dip your fingers in the deodorant, melt in your hands by rubbing your hands together and then wipe onto your underarms.

Shaving oil/cream

 

The best shaving cream is actually shaving oil. Moisten legs or face.

Apply a generous amount of Changing Habits Coconut Oil onto the skin surface you want to shave.

Make sure you have covered the skin surface to be shaved enough for your razor to glide smoothly over it.

Shave as normal. Rinse with warm water.

Best of all, you won’t have to grab some lotion because your legs and face won’t feel dry from the shaving foam and you can see where you are shaving as it is clear.

Aftershave and hair tonic

              

 

Make your own!

 If you need an aftershave – make up your own with a drop a sandalwood and a scoop of coconut oil – moisten your face with a fresh fragrance and nourishing aftershave.

Make your own hair tonic and tame your hair. Coconut oil is wonderful for taming hair and just making it look smooth. You can use it straight from the jar or add a little essential oil to make your hair not only look good but smell good too.

 Neutralises

 

Neutralises the smell of onions and garlic – simply wash you hands with coconut oil and rinse with warm water.


Nappy wipes

 


Coconut oil is also great for making up your own baby wipes with coconut oil. As a young Mum Cyndi never used any of the baby wipes as most of them were laced with chemicals.  Don’t be swayed by advertising and marketing and the baby bounty bag that you get at a hospital, most of the products are chemicals rather than natural ingredients. A good rule of thumb is if you can’t eat it, then don’t put it on your baby’s skin.

Pure extra virgin coconut oil

For centuries the Asian and pacific island communities have used coconut in various forms including the oil, they are a big part of their diet and lifestyle and have been used as a constant in the diet.

Organic plant-based source of saturated fat. Can be used in baking to make it diary free. Wonderful to use externally on the skin.
