The sample for ancient wisdiom virgin was much better for my face. & the best part is they exchanged 1 unopened bottle of virgin oil for ancient wisdom. What service I must. Say. Thank u so much really appreciate it.

Your site must attract some who buy on price value, without realising the true value of your high quality coconut oils.

Your site must attract some who buy on price value, without realising the true value of your high quality coconut oils.

However I have no doubt that you also have MANY (like me and my husband) that are like-minded seekers of the truth, which of course includes seeking out good quality foods that nourish our bodies – instead of causing dis-ease, as the intake of processed/synthetic foods […can] do.

Thanks for being there for us.

You have my permission to publish my accolade (so well deserved) if you wish. I wish more food suppliers had the wisdom to only provide foods of integrity.

Blessings, Marie.

I just tried rubbing coconut oil onto Arthur’s belly

I have two beautiful pointers – Betty and Arthur; both have skin problems and accordingly I avoid yeast, flour and beef. Betty loves her coconut oil massages and thankfully has no dry spots any longer – Arthur is a new arrival and will need some work, his skin is pink and seemingly very sensitive I feed them both coconut oil in their food and I just tried rubbing coconut oil onto Arthur’s belly and under his legs it really does seem to calm the itching and he LOVES the taste.

We all use the oil for different things but everyone is always so pleased with it!

I am pregnant and I have gone through a whole jar since January! I’m finding it works really well for my skin and is the only thing I moisturize my body with. I am also recommending my favorite coconut oil to everyone who asks what I use. We all use the oil for different things but everyone is always so pleased with it!

Thank you again.

Nickie Linaire™ Blog has done a review of White Gold

Currently I am eating, cooking and beautifying my way through my second jar of White Gold Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. In a previous post I wrote about how a goal for me this year is to convert all of my beauty products to their organic counterpart. Because of it’s diverse uses, Coconut Oil has allowed me to replace many of my beauty products in one foul swoop…
I like to purchase my Coconut Oil from the Coconut Oil Shop. The Coconut Oil Shop has a vast selection of coconut oils, and best of all they ship overnight for free.

Coconut oil has changed my life for the better

Hi team,

Awesome people and awesome service. Thank-you. You are all simply the best people to deal with, and i just love your coconut oil. Great for cooking, eating off the spoon, raw energy bars, and as a body and massage oil. Coconut oil has changed my life for the better. I can highly recommend buying from this site.

Thank-you heaps.

No surprises at checkout!

Hi, wanted to let you know my ancient wisdom oil arrived today after only ordering yesterday – and we’re rural!

And LOVE the smell (very mild) and the taste (mild and delicious). Also loved the fact that postage was included in the price – no surprises at checkout! I give it to the whole family so will be back for more at some stage. Many thanks, Pip

Three years ago my husband had a stroke

“My husband and I have been taking Coconut oil for over a month now .
Three years ago my husband had a stroke and I read coconut oil is good
for the brain and as his memory is not what is was, I thought this may
help.

I also have arthritis in my knees and I must say I have felt the
benefit of the coconut oil as my knees are not as sore and stiff as
they were and I have even been able to go for walk again.

I am sure there has been an improvement in my husband also and I have
recommended coconut oil to many people.”

“I ordered my oil yesterday evening and the parcel arrived here in the lower north island today around midday.
Great service, (although I’d be a bit nervous if any black magic is involved.)”

I am so impressed with your service

“Unreal!

I am so impressed with your service. The coconut oil is fabulous! I will be ordering more very soon, thanks!”

Is this too good to be true?!

I had heard all about the health benefits of coconut oil and wanted to give it a try, there are quite a few companies and what made me trust in the Coconut Oil Shop was I liked that you were just your average kiwi family who have seen a gap in the market and want to supply bulk amounts of a good product to other every day kiwis for a reasonable price.

One of my cats is completely obsessed with Coconut Oil!

One of my cats is completely obsessed with CO. I had a small pot by my bed to use in my hair and it kept disappearing ….. Yes, the closet CO addict had been at work!

I now have a pot just for her by her food dish and she treats it a bit like a horse does a salt lick -‘snacking’ multiple times a day.

She has the most amazing thick, glossy black coat you’ve ever seen. Take a look here (photo doesn’t do justice).

Oh, by the way… Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil ….. OH MY! Sooooo good.

A comment from a satisfied customer

“I was just searching the net one day, looking for coconut oil to buy, when I came across your shop. It’s great! I won’t buy it anywhere else now. I tell all my friends about it. More people need to know how good it is!!

Coconut Oil gets Coco the Coconut Oil loving dog running to the kitchen!

I realise I better start using it in smallish amounts

“My 4L [IndusKera] coconut oil bucket arrived today. I opened it and couldn’t believe the wonderful smell, wow. My kids loved the smell of the oil in the pail too. It will be interesting to cook, fry and bake with it. Having tried it on my kids, by cooking a dish with it, I realise I better start using it in smallish amounts – it seems to be a bit of an acquired taste.

I read the comments about the cat and dog and will try if my ones like it too. I am sure it will be good for them as well.

Also, thanks for your reply – I was so impressed, that you actually replied in detail to my questions!!!!
Do you realise how few people actually do that sort of thing anymore?”

Email from a satisfied customer:

Have been impressed once again with your exceptional service

“Have been impressed once again with your exceptional service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends. In fact, shared your web address with my naturopath last week, and she was equally delighted and excited to learn of your existence. Was particularly interested in the fact that you source coconut flour. Like me, she’d been unable to find elsewhere. Wonderful to deal with such good folk as yourselves. Wishing you every success.

Kindest regards,
Lorraine”

I sent an article on coconut oil to my sister and she actually delved into it

“I sent an article on coconut oil to my sister and she actually delved into it as her husband has a stroke a while ago and is not as alert as he was.

She bought some from you and when I was talking to her yesterday morning she was saying how great they both felt and she had been able to go for a walk without her knees killing her.

She also said that she has noticed good changes in her husband. When you are in your 60’s I am willing to try anything for good health and coconut oil sounded great.”

Speaking about Chantal 700 ml jars

It tastes pure and fresh, there is no aftertaste

“I recently ordered some oil and some creamed coconut from you and I am so impressed with both your service and your products.

Prior to this order, I bought a small jar of a supermarket brand – my first try of coconut oil. I wasn’t very happy – it has a lingering chemically/waxy taste that while mild, managed to permeate anything and everything I mixed it with. Not nice! I thought this might just be the way it tastes & I’d have to put up with it. Then your products arrived and it is an entirely different thing. It tastes pure and fresh, there is no aftertaste – no taste at all but coconut. When compared side by side, the supermarket product is yellowish, whereas yours is pure white. I am so happy with it! I have now started adding a little coconut oil to my baby’s food in lieu of butter; he likes it too.

Also, it arrived in less than one business day and postage was free. Absolutely great work. Thanks so much!”

Take a look at what one of our customers has to say about our customer service!

The Coconut Oil Shop was more expensive

When I first started buying coconut oil, I tried a few different online suppliers looking for the best price and the best delivery time.I was buying from another provider, but when an order took 9 days, and 3 follow up emails to get to me, I gave the Coconut Oil Shop online another try. My order arrived the very next day*! Wow! That’s what I call service!

Since then, and many orders later, I have discovered their customer service is nothing short of outstanding! Friendly, prompt, and orders are sent when they say they are sent! I feel like they bend over backwards to ensure I get the best in service, quality and supply. I can recommend them wholeheartedly!!

Thank you so much!

Elizabeth Johnsen knows good service when she gets it! CoconutOilShop.co.nzElizabeth Johnsen, Christchurch
*Next day delivery is normal for Christchurch, but not for the North Island. It’s more like 2 to 6 days for other parts of New Zealand, including weekends.

 

We got a hand written note in the mail!

When I order Zenian Organic Virgin Coconut Oil from the Coconut Oil Shop I know that their service is as good as their product, outstanding.

I have been using their product now for some years, two tablespoons at breakfast gives me the energy boost I need for the day.

Few companies in this country advise you that your order has been dispatched, this company does this well, by email.

Cheers

Lou Gordon, Thames

Wow, great products and personalised service.

I had to cancel my order, because the size of the packaging didn’t suit me
I’ve spent a lot of time in the tropics, and I keep coconut oil here for cooking, and my skin.

I’ve been ordering jars from the Coconut Oil Shop. One time I thought I’d order a 4 litre pail, but after the order was placed, I realised the size of the pail may be too large for the kitchen.

When I contacted the shop about this, I discovered I could exchange what I had ordered for glass jars because they helped me choose a selection of a similar value. There was no problem!

Now that is service like it should be

Hi.
Have been reading Bruce Fife’s book and your website/testimonials.
A couple of questions – oxidation. In your processing I understand
you are not using heat – what about contact with the air creating
damage to the nutrient? What about the damaging effects of light?
Apologies in advance if I sound clueless …. I am.
Kind Regards
Gillian Thorpe

Coconut Oil Shop October 5, 2012 at 11:49 pm

Hi Gillian, Our apologies for the delay in replying. Coconut oil is an incredibly stable oil. It is 92% saturated fat, and resists oxidation. Coconut oil is also high in lauric acid which has antioxidant properties. It’s not light sensitive, either. Fermentation doesn’t damage the nutrient but improves it.

Kathy November 18, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Hi, I just came across your website and sooo excited about placing an order, Im hoping to get some coconut oil, coconut sugar and coconut flour – do you do package deals on those items together? Also, I love making homemade chocolate which basically consists of cocoa, icing sugar, milk powder and KREMELTA. Im very aware of how BAD kremelta is for me, so I’m wondering if it can be replaced with Coconut oil – will that work and will it alter the taste much? Im wanting to get the organic raw fermented oil (so I can use the same oil for everything – cooking, eating, and body care). Thanks in advance!

Virgin Coconut Oil Chocolate

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/4 cup agave (or substitute with stevia or maple syrup to taste, or Coco Nectar Syrup)
Mix sweetener with oil then add cocoa powder. Keep stirring. I tend to put it in the fridge for 5 minutes until it gets a little harder to stir then spread it on grease-proof baking paper. Put another sheet of baking paper on top and flatten it down with a place-mat. You’ll end up with a slab.

Once you’re happy with the basic version you can start experimenting with fruit and nuts or orange peel etc. It’s absolutely delicious but melts very easily.

To answer your question about the taste, the only way for you to know is to try it yourself. We have a 380 ml jar for both Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil and White Gold, and we’ve packaged them into a combo plan. Perhaps you could try the the Fermented, and Unfermented taste combo.

Hello….I have just placed my second order for the Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil – this time a 3.25 L bucket. Delivery to New Plymouth. My only concern is whether the oil will get rancid – because of the quantity and storage over the months while it is being used in moderate quantities each day. Is the stock fresh or stored – then the chances of it being rancid increase due to the process used to extract the oil. Secondly, I am yet to trial the Zenian brand Coconut Oil product (Philipines) – it appears to be more popular from what I have heard. Is this a superior product to Ancient Wisdom ???? If so – I would like to trial it. Please note my family use coconut oil daily for cooking – frying, curries etc – so would prefer the best (healthwise)… I would appreciate your comments….thank you …kind regards…George

Coconut Oil Shop January 21, 2013 at 6:21 pm

Hi George, Thanks for your question. There is absolutely no need to worry if virgin coconut oil will get rancid. Coconut oil is an incredibly stable oil and it resists oxidation.

Even well beyond the Best Before Date (not “expiry date”) of 2 years, your coconut oil will stay fine as long as clean utencils are used when the oil is scooped out and it is kept out of the sun with the lid on.

No need for refrigeration, either.

The only reason you have heard more about the Zenian brand is that it has been around longer and it is stocked in many health shops across the country. Chantal is the same.

Ancient Wisdom is the most potent coconut oil we know of, and we regard it the best oil if you are taking it for health reasons. We are able to offer Ancient Wisdom and White Gold cheaper because we import them ourselves directly from the families who produce the oils in Samoa and Sri Lanka respectively. Quality and taste wise, we believe they are actually superior to the other brands that are currently most popular in NZ.

Hi, can coconut oil be used as a spread on toast? Will the taste be too strong for the kids? We have been using olive oil spread for the family but I heard they are unhealthy too. Appreciate your advise. Thanks. Herni

Virgin coconut oil can be spread on toast no problem. We don’t think it tastes strong at all. Our children like it.

Just over a year ago I purchased a jar of white gold coconut oil, and I use it regularly on my skin as a moisturiser. I recently had a baby and she developed cradle cap on her eyebrows and head. I have been applying coconut oil on it and it has cleared up! I also used it on her dry newborn skin, It is ideal for babies as it is completely natural and gentle on their sensitive skin. My jar is nearly empty so I just ordered another, I think it is great value for money, what other moisturiser could you buy for that price, that would last that long and have so many uses!
