That is an amazing price, but it is not organic extra virgin.
does anyone here really know what extra virgin for any oil really means?
fact: Vergin oil refers to using a fresh filter on the production line. extra virgin refers to the very first run of product.
DOES IT MATTER, some times it does, major taste differences with olives and what not. But that's because they use wood and other media that gets saturated and no longer flavors the product.
Coconut oil- most anything you are going to buy is made in a refinery/ processing mill. stainless steel mashers and poly fiber filters. there is no added taste value that is compared to flavoring with the use of wood barrels or mills.
Coconut oil is almost the same no matter what you get. there is a small difference with quality from brand to brand with the fibers that make it past the filters/strainers.
I had a brand, hated it, had to many granuals of coconut in it. PS i use it for massage oil as a professional massage therapist for sports injuries. I would say i have gone thru 40 gallons of this stuff so far my self.
Again it makes no difference. I do eat it and i taste no difference what so ever with extra vs virgin vs stock whatever
Okay, new coconut oil users: Start easy with this stuff. A little goes a long way. You have to be OK with the taste it imparts...quite tropical IMO. For example, it adds quite a bit of tropical flavor to salmon broiled or fried/finished in oven. It can be a little off-putting if you're not ready for it.
On the skin, it will last all day and again, less is more. Think of it as a after-sun product. If you are near blowing sand or perhaps on a bike ride, you WILL have grit stuck to your exposed skin...it doesn't really disappear like some lotions or oils, even if you rub it in.
It's interesting that the ambient temp in our house can vary just enough that the oil is oil in the master bath, but solid in the pantry. Just a few seconds in your hands and it melts completely...watch for drips.
If you get the larger sizes, portion out your cooking oil and put it in a separate, air-tight container. That way, you can just dig your hand into the big jar for skin applications. I actually found a little wooden 'spork' that we leave in the jar so it's easy to dig out in the solid state.
"Momma don't want no peas, no rice, no coconut oil"
loli, have you tried adding sesame oil? That was my go-to oil back in my sports massage days. Danged expensive, but might be a nice addition to the coconut, just for a difference. Actually, I found St. Ives Aloe lotion cut 50/50 with water to be slick enough and it disappeared nicely for those folks who didn't want the 'completely oiled' feeling. It's not a pure product by any means, but not too bad for the price.
