About the Smith Family and the Coconut Oil Shop

Before we started this online shop we were just an average family oblivious to the real health issues.

Coconut Oil Shop was started back in 2009, in Darfield, Canterbury. Today we are located close to the township of Te Anau (170 km south west of Queenstown), we look across our part of the Te Anau basin to the the Fiordland National Park.

It’s a unique part of New Zealand. We enjoy eating and using coconut oil on a daily basis. It is our part of our wholefood revitalisation programme.

Until we became parents We were fairly complacent about health issues. We bought food and everyday items that happened to be on special at supermarkets like everyone else, did and ate what the doctor recommended, and believed what we saw and read in the media about foods we should and shouldn’t eat.

It all started with our first baby with severe eczema and asthma

Little did we know that our first child was going to arrive in the world with so many ailments that the modern world brings. Eczema, asthma, food allergies and sensitivities to name a few. The severity of such conditions as our son had startled and scared us and we often feared for his life. We were desperate for a solution so that our son could thrive. Then our true journey to healthy living began. It is also the reason we began using Virgin Coconut Oil to make skincare products.

Our journey has yet a long way to go but we have found a great many things in the process of discovery. A few of them, such as coconut oil, have been life-changing for us. This shop was born out of our desire to serve individuals and families in New Zealand by making quality coconut oil readily available to them at affordable prices.

When the media call up. Who do they talk to?

As you proceed from here, you’ll notice we are a family business. Supporting us is supporting traditional, small scale enterprise. We try to deal with suppliers who fit that description as much as possible.
