Buying Organic Coconut Oil

What to Look for When You Buy Organic Coconut Oil

Luckily it’s pretty simple…

  1. ONE ingredient.. 100% cold-pressed certified organic coconut oil.

That’s pretty much it 🙂 Certified Non-GMO is also a consideration. I eat, drink and even brush my teeth with coconut oil! So, it’s extra important to find a quality buy.

I was so big at the end of my pregnancy I could barely roll over in under 30 seconds. Thanks to using coconut oil in the bath water (and as lotion), I don’t have one single stretch mark… My tummy muscles split but no cray damage to my belly skin, what?! I have been IN LOVE with organic coconut oil ever since.

I found that unless I bought the cold pressed unrefined VIRGIN oil, whatever they used to process it with would dry my skin out. When I switched to the best quality, I had nothing but silky smooth luxury.

There are so many uses for coconut oil..

I will say I’m not a huge fan of it’s effects on my hair. Some swear by it otherwise, but as conditioner, it was too shiny and greasy for me. I may try again with a higher quality grade.

This is one of those products where buying 100% Quality (coconut oil) is worth every penny.

Carrington Farms seems to be a great family owned US company. It is my top pick as far as “bang for buck” goes. The smaller Nutiva jar for under $10 is more convenient for dental use and as a nutritional supplement & replacement for butters and fats. You’ll see it is right in the same price range as well. You can’t really go wrong with the right search criteria. Check it out:

Here are some benefits & things I look for while shopping:

  • USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Virgin, Kosher, Non-Hydrogenated, No Cholesterol
  • Freshly made from cold-pressed coconuts, with a light and pleasant coconut taste and aroma
  • Nutritional health benefits of 50% lauric acid and 62% medium-chain triglycerides
  • Great for sautéing and baking, oil pulling & skin and hair care
  • Certified organic
  • No trans and hydrogenated fats
  • You can use coconut oil as a healthy and delicious replacement for butter or fat
  • Sauteed vegetables, roast sweet potatoes, add to smoothies or mix into cereal
  • Coconut oil is the most nutritious oil and the perfect choice for your health and energy
  • Use coconut oil as a healthy and delicious replacement for butter or fat
  • You can sauté vegetables, roast sweet potatoes, add to smoothies or mix into cereal
  • No trans and hydrogenated fats, certified organic





Since I shop for coconut oil quite often, these seem to be the ones I purchase the most. 

Organic Baby

My son is just 2 years old. And I thought I cared about product quality before?! A Mother does better research than the CIA.. So here is my take on Organic Baby Products.

We live in a new age of chemicals.. My family doesn’t understand why I care so much sometimes. They were raised in a different era. One where real food was the only food you could really buy. Food Manufacturing is a very large industry. Being a conscious consumer doesn’t require being a conspiracy theorist. I simply understand that the suit and ties that run companies, by nature, do everything they can, to maximize their profits. It’s their job.

As a Mom, its my job, to maximize my son’s health and quality of life.

I like to inspire industries and the suits and ties, watching the bottom lines, as well. Each time we buy a product for the same price or just pennies more that IS organic, we create a ripple. We bring good health to our own home and inspire large companies to expand their own organic lines. Standing for what we believe in doesn’t have to be a struggle.

You will find great deals on affordable, organic, sometimes even American Made products. Buy purchasing through my site and links you also support me to continue our research, deal hunting, quality hunting, taking great care of my son and working for sustainable community projects I believe in.
