If you’re planning on getting the best coconut oil or virgin coconut oil I should say the least processed and less exposed to heat -given you have the time and ingredients I recommend that you make the oils on your own -the nutrients in there and health benefits are worth it!

If you’re super busy like me you can also go for this Virgin Coconut Oil that is mild in scent and flavor that I really like not too strong and not deodorized just perfect for my beauty and cooking needs. It’s cold pressed so most nutrients stays intact -well not really as comparable when you do it yourself but fairly better than others that’s in the market.
