Island Fresh Coconut Oil - OMG!

The owner of Island Fresh - Mark Anderson blessed me with this oh so generous 54 fl oz organic, virgin, cold-pressed, non-gmo, unrefined coconut oil. The product arrived packed snugly. Anyone who complains that their item arrives leaking is honestly just simply lying! The seal was so tight as well as the cap that I had to get my husband to help out and open it and he struggled. This type of packaging ensures that this item is pure and untouched from any oxygen which would alter its freshness.

I love the simple approach this small company employs in regard to the labeling. I also appreciate the design of their website . Good health does not have to be complicated!

The taste! OMG! Fresh coconuty, just a tad unctuous. I started out taking one tablespoon before bed. I have to tell you that my digestion (sparing you the details) has been better and I prefer this in place of fiber at night. Taking some oil before bedtime helps my liver out and is better than dessert! Google the benefits of coconut oil - guaranteed that your findings will be ala Bubba shrimp... 

I gave this oil to my dog on a dinner plate. It was gone lickety split! And I also scooped some into a glass Ball jar. Now when she sees me pick up the jar she comes a runnin'. She thinks I am going to feed it to her, but I apply it to her skin as she tends to have dry skin. As soon as I apply it she is licking it off! The benefits are twofold.

Since I have just been diagnosed with hypothryroidism (with supplementation I dodged the "Armour Thyroid" meds bullet) I was interested in coconut oil as thyroid support as mentioned on the label. 

I liked applying the oil to my hair (yummy smell), but found it was a bit too oily even after I shampooed it. However, this item is a great after shower moisturizer! I have added to a glass cosmetic jar and use it in place of expensive lotions which I have found even though gluten free, and contained wonderfully beneficial plant-based ingredients - just don't do much for my suntanned skin.

I could sing praises of Island Fresh Coconut Oil all day long long into the night. This jar has a special place in my kitchen away from heat and light. It proudly waits for me to open it and enjoy throughout the day. I will be a consumer of this product for a very long time. Thank you, Island Fresh!!!
