What can you use organic coconut oil for in the kitchen?
Baking: Organic coconut oil is a great substitute for butter or other oils when baking cakes, cookies and bread.
Cooking: Use organic coconut oil for frying or as an ingredient in soups, curries and stir-fries. It adds a mild coconut flavor to dishes.

Why is organic coconut oil sometimes solid and sometimes liquid?
This is due to the saturated fatty acids and the melting point of organic coconut oil.
Organic coconut oil is solid because it consists mainly of saturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids have higher melting points than unsaturated fatty acids and become solid at room temperature. Our Vitis Organic Coconut Oil is about 94% saturated fatty acids, mainly lauric acid, myristic acid and palmitic acid, which is why it has a solid texture at room temperature.
What is the melting point of organic coconut oil?
Generally, it is between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius. This means that organic coconut oil is solid at room temperature, which is usually around 20 to 22 degrees Celsius. When the ambient temperature is higher than the melting point, the coconut oil becomes liquid.
Does the consistency have anything to do with the quality of the organic oil?
No, the consistency of organic coconut oil is not an indication of its quality or purity. The oil can be solid or liquid as long as it is made from high quality unrefined coconuts and does not contain any additives.
What else is organic coconut oil suitable for besides cooking oil?
Organic coconut oil is a very versatile oil that can be used in more than just cooking. Here we have a few other possible applications:
Natural body care: coconut oil is an excellent natural skin care product because it moisturizes, reduces inflammation and makes the skin supple and soft. It can be used as a body lotion, facial cleanser, makeup remover or hair care product.
Massage Oil: Organic coconut oil can be used as a natural massage oil to relieve muscle tension, reduce inflammation and nourish the skin. It has a mild coconut scent and is easily absorbed into the skin.
Oil pulling: Organic coconut oil is great for oil pulling. Oil pulling involves putting a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and rinsing it back and forth in your mouth for about 10 to 20 minutes before spitting it out. During oil pulling, toxins and bacteria should be pulled from the mouth and body. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties and can help reduce gingivitis and tooth decay.
Aromatherapy: Organic coconut oil can be used as a carrier oil for essential oils. It has a long shelf life and can facilitate the dilution of essential oils and protect the skin from irritation.
