Beautiful on salads, raw vegetables and bread. £5.85

Its delicious, coconuty flavour makes it a great addition to any marinades, dressings and sauces and its 350 degree F smoking point, make it a great option for mid temperature cooking. As with all coconut oil, this will also make a fantastic moisturiser or makeup remover. £8.99
