I have tried several brands of coconut oil lately, and am very pleased with this one, the problem I have had with many coconut oils is they upset my stomach, sometimes have to lay down with bad tummy ache - running to the loo etc. I can take a large teaspoon full several times during the day and no bad effects, it is smooth and creamy, mild tasting and very nice to use. It also sinks into your skin alot better than most oils and leaves hands feeling soft. I especially want to consume large amounts of coconut oil, ie 3 to 4 tablespoons a day, as when I was doing this with another brand, that I can no longer get, I found after only 3 weeks, I was able to stop taking my asthma inhalers that I have been on for 45 years. Coconut oil rocks... thanks iherb, great service and quick delivery as usual.

I started reading about the benefits coconut oil & it's many uses and decided to try it on my eczema skin. I apply it after every shower. In Singapore the weather is always Summer so it stays liquid all the time which make it easier for me..I don't remove the 2nd lid , I just peirce a tini hole and pour the oil in my hands. I use it for my hair & skin. My husband's hair is thinning , so I'm applying it on his hair too ! I also feed the oil to my 2 cats , 1 teaspoon on alternate days and massage into their fur once a week. The fur look so healthy and shimy ! Love it !! And the coconut smelll is so lovely !!

The only reason I didn't give it a five star rating is because it's in a plastic container and I prefer glass. The cost is good and it tastes great!!

As the label on the bottle says, this is "Good for cooking". This is packed in a plastic bottle and shipping charges is more economical. The taste is light and fresh but the aroma is not the best. For eating right-out-of-the bottle, Artisana 100% Organic Raw Coconut butter has the sweetest aroma for the greatest pleasure! Be prepared to pay more for the product and shipping charges.

I really like this brand and have tried several. It's not my most favorite - that award goes to Artisana , but the quality is good. when I first reviewed this product, the price was great, it was far better than Nutiva and - just as good as others that cost twice the price. Now that the price is steadily climbing, I will try others in glass jars. Update at Dec. 2011: my most recent jar went rancid really quickly, which had never happened before. I called the company, and the first person I talked to was not helpful and wanted me to pay shipping to return it. Her superior, however, immediately offered to send a replacement jar or check, my preference. I let them both know that I'd include their decision in an iherb review! Also note: the company was recently bought out by Schwaab.

This coconut oil makes u smell like a coconut cookie after application. Good if you like that :) I use it at night so the smell is not an issue. And it is absorbed quickly if you apply it post shower, so u do not feel greasy. I mixed it with my Badger Company Damascus Rose which i also got from iHerb. The rose oil itself is great but i have very dry skin so after about 2 weeks it wasnt enough and i started getting dry patches on my legs again. The combination of both oils seems to be perfect to keep that at bay. I use equal parts of both oil and its been working well for over a month now. Will keep using it for sure.

nice sweet smell and light texture. easy to mix in your coffee and tea. really delish on toast! i use it for oil pulling too. since it has a sweet smell so i dont recommend it for cooking. (like savory meals. good for dessert though)

Received EVCO in approx 12 days, well packaged and as a first time user of real coconut oil it was absolutely gorgeous! The aroma, the taste,wonderful to cook with, as a spread instead of butter, on your skin, in your hair - what wonders it performs!! Great prices much more value than in Great Britain. Definitely be ordering more - keep up the excellent service iherb.Reason it did not rate a 5star was that the contents was not full - there were pockets of air and not coconut-filled to the brim - bit cheeky of manufacturers I feel!
