La Tourangelle Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

La Tourangelle Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

If you still haven’t purchased a jar of organic coconut oil, we will make it our mission to persuade you by the end of this post!

This divine oil, has made its way, not only into the culinary world, making our gastronomic experiences much more interesting, but also in to the land of well – being, and that is why it’s Preferably Pure’s Pick of the Month.

Coconut oil is so versatile that it can be used as a cooking oil or butter, this way avoiding those trans fats,  and is simply superb for enhancing the flavour of your meals, especially when sautéing or stir frying. I also like to add it to my soups and curries.

Now, for the even better news! Coconut oil will become your newly beloved night stand accessory, right there next to your water bottle! You wont be able to get enough of this versatile, totally organic moisturiser. Coconut oil provides pure, all natural nourishment to the skin. If you choose the right brand, you are getting bottled goodness free of preservative, parabens and all those other chemical ingredients we are so desperately trying to rid our lives of.

This multi-purpose oil can be used as a body moisturiser as it is absorbed within just a few minutes after applying and it leaves your skin feeling smooth and scented. I also like to use it as a lip balm – for exactly the same reasons. You can even try replacing it with your overpriced hair mask by leaving it in overnight and by morning your hair will feel soft and silky.

This multi-use oil will also remove your make up, and for the extreme coconut oil users out there, it is said to rid toxins and bacteria,  which are said to build up in the body through the mouth,  by the process of ‘oil pulling’. Oil pulling is the ancient Ayurvedic practice of swishing or holding oils from plants in the mouth for a prolonged period of time fro the reasons mentioned above.

So, now that you have accumulated a clearer understanding as to why we are going nuts over coconuts, let me suggest a brand I have found which is 100% organic.

La Tourangelle produces 100% organic, virgin and unrefined NON-GMO coconut oil which is fresh and delicious! It is made from organic coconuts that are grown in the Philippines which are expeller-pressed within 4 days of being harvested by hand.

La Tourangelle is “an authentic & traditional family producer of speciality oils hand crafting a wide range of delicious artisan oils in both the Loire Valley of France (Saumur) and California”. According to their website, La Tourangelle is also one of very few remaining mills that keep this tradition of gourmet oils, which are very popular in France, alive, by extracting the nuts gathered by local farmers.
Apart from its recognisable coconut aroma, you should know that, coconut oil generally melts at 24C/76F. If the temperature is above this point, the oil will be in liquid form. If the temperature is below 24C/76F, it will become solid. This occurrence in natural and does in no way affects the oil.

If you are looking to purchase this on of a kind virgin, organic and totally unrefined coconut oil, you can find it at KANTINA QUALITY FOODS  in Nicosia at 48 Sophouli Str. Nicosia, (+357) 22680040 at the price of 8.40 euro per 314ml bottle.
